Love comes to a tragic end in the just-released visuals for Kendrick Lamar’s “Poetic Justice.” The video opens with a car arriving to a Compton block party as “Sherane a.k.a. Master Splinter’s Daughter” plays in the background. Shortly after, Kendrick spots a cutie in the crowd and adorable flirtation ensues. Drake makes a cameo by leaving a voicemail (well, his verse) on the same girl’s phone.

In this tragic hood tale, the only thing missing is a cameo from Janet Jackson, whose “Anytime, Anyplace” is sampled for the fan-favorite track.
