[VIDEO] Kendrick Lamar Replaces Contracted Female Lead in Poetic Justice Music Video w/ Darker Skinned Model Brittany Sky

West Coast Rapper Kendrick Lamar replaced the female lead in his Poetic Justice music video selecting Brittany Sky, a model with a darker skin tone.
 
That's wassup!

"We had another girl for the lead, but I had an idea where I just wanted a little bit of a darker tone in the video. It’s almost like a color blind industry where there’s only one type of appeal to the camera."

If you have any insight into the hip-hop music industry you will know why Kendrick's decision is significant/ borderline ground breaking.
