Video: Kendrick Lamar – ‘These Walls’

Following “i,” “King Kunta,” “Alright,” and “For Free?” Kendrick Lamar delivers another epic video off his chart-topping album To Pimp a Butterfly, this time for “These Walls” featuring Bilal, Anna Wise, and Thundercat.

The Compton rapper shows his comedic side (and dance moves) in the cinematic clip, entitled “Behind the Walls,” which opens in a jail cell and then flashes back to a wild night at an apartment complex.

An inmate (Corey Holcomb) recalls the debauchery that landed him behind bars. We see K-Dot in his room humping a girl while her girlfriends catch it all on camera. He then crashes the stage at a talent show and performs “Hit the Quan” alongside Terry Crews. Meanwhile, Isaiah Rashad gets tied up and seduced in his bedroom, and SZA finds Kendrick crashing through her apartment wall. By the end of the night, the cops come calling and Holcomb’s character gets arrested.

Kendrick is currently touring the country on his “Kunta’s Groove Sessions” tour, which kicked off last night in Atlanta.
