It looks like Kendrick Lamar is expanding his good kid, m.A.A.d city to the next medium. In his recent interview with GQ, the Compton rapper revealed that some type of short film is potentially in the works. Some have already wondered about this since seeing “A Short Film by Kendrick Lamar” on the album artwork. It looks like the answer is here.

GQ: The album is out and praised. What’s next?
Kendrick Lamar: Visuals… When I call it a short film, I don’t just call it that for the sake of the album. So that’s a hint.

GQ: Are you going to act in it, star in it, direct it?
Kendrick Lamar: Directing for sure. I haven’t really thought about starring in it… I can, because it is me and my life.

GQ: Let’s say you weren’t going to star in it and you could have anyone in the world, who would you have play yourself?
Kendrick Lamar: Anyone in the world? It would have to be somebody… there’s one kid on The Wire, Tristan Wilds [who played Mike Lee].

GQ: Who would you have play your mom?
Kendrick Lamar: I probably get Taraji Henson.

GQ: Okay, okay. Sharane?
Kendrick Lamar: I would love to see Rihanna in my movie [laughs]. Looking at this cover right here, man.
