Don Cheadle, who played the the original Kung Fu Kenny in Rush Hour 2, chatted with Pitchfork about his role in Kendrick Lamar’s latest video “DNA.” According to the interview, he only had two days to prepare for his role as a cop who quickly switches from serious interrogation to seriously spitting rhymes, memorizing about half of Kendrick’s verses and studying videos of his movements to prepare for the role.

Cheadle reveals that he was the one that came up with the special definition for “DNA.” in the music video, as well as lowkey crowning K Dot as the best rapper in the world. Check out the rest of the fascinating interview over at Pitchfork.
