Kendrick Lamar And Hannibal Buress Join BJ The Chicago Kid In “The New Cupid” Video

Buress: “The video was missing one piece. It was me.”

March 24, 2016

"The New Cupid" paints an amusing picture. Cupid's too busy in the club, at the bar, rolling up, BJ the Chicago Kid sings. For a moment, the track takes a serious turn—If you see him, let him know/ Love is gone—before BJ swoops in to save the day: Stupid, I'm the the new cupid.


Kendrick Lamar, Hannibal Buress, Iamsu!, and Mila J all appear in the clip. "BJ was telling how the video was missing one piece," Buress told Rolling Stone. "It was me. I came into the picture and made this project whole. The cherry on top. The final stroke of the paintbrush on a masterpiece. A lot of people have been asking about my compensation for this project. BJ paid me in a lifetime subscription to Tidal and three ghostwritten 13-bar verses about any subject matter of my choosing."
