Kendrick Lamar and Kahlil Joseph team up for "m.A.A.d.," a short film based on K. Dot's "good kid, m.A.A.d. city."

Kendrick Lamar and Kahlil Joseph are set to debut a 14-minute short film, m.A.A.d., at Sundance’s NEXT Fest, a mini-film festival, according to Fader.

Joseph has won a Sundance Award for “Until The Quiet Comes,” a film he worked on with Flying Lotus.

The site says m.A.A.d is set to star “a kaleidoscope of storylines and ideas that defy typical categorization to explore new languages and new forms.”

    This album is ahead of its time. Perfection from start to finish. The best hip-hop debut since Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor.

    This album will go down as one of the best albums of all time for any genre just like Illmatic, Reasonable Doubt, Ready to Die and the other rap albums that are considered the best of all time. When those albums came out we didn't understand how great they because were very young at the time. Now we have a chance to witness a classic and a legend in the making. The storytelling is amazing. It's like a movie. You can't just listen to a couple of songs or skip through. You have to listen straight through from beginning to end.

    Amazing album. When I listen to it, it was more than music, it was a story of a person just like me with dreams, fear, dangers, trouble, happiness, adolescence and maturity. He stayed true to his roots he kept it original but different. God bless Kendrick Lamar and hip hop.

    Really overhyped it's simply a phony generation with these skinny-jeans half homos that gets the media attention. Called it a classic before it dropped??? shame on ya'll for f'in the whole game up. Age of Aquarius will prove ya'll wrong with this money over everything (even your own family) mentality. Wait and see
