Compton stand up. Fresh off premiering the video on the Jumbotron in Times Square and at L.A. LIVE, Kendrick Lamar puts on for his city in the video for “King Kunta.”
The West Coast kingpin takes it back to his ‘hood in the X-directed clip, which was shot throughout his hometown last month. He performs atop the Compton swap meet while fans cheer him on, takes his rightful throne, and even C-walks through the streets and the local liquor store. The whole city came out to show Kendrick love and members of his crew also make cameos.
His album To Pimp a Butterfly remains No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for a second week with 123,000, bringing his two-week total to 447,000.
Watch King Kendrick come straight outta Compton.
