After storming to the top of Billboard with the highly anticipated ‘To Pimp A Butterfly‘, Kendrick Lamar recently shut down L.A. as he gave a free mobile concert on the back of a truck as part of his ongoing partnership with Reebok. K-Dot showed yet more love to his hometown, shooting the video for ‘King Kunta’ on the streets of Compton.
The clip starts off like a typical West Coast rap video with Kendrick crawling through the hood in a cream jalopy with excited women in the back. Director X feeds our eyes with some engaging cut-aways of day to day CPT as Kendrick gets the city two stepping to his funk-infused banger. Though he is seated, or squatted on his rightful throne, the charming realness and humility about King Kendrick that fans the world over adore him for comes shining through. This, the second video from TPAB, retains the rowdy energy of the ‘i‘ visual.
Now get your Chucks on and get steppin’!
