Despite having the number one album in the country, Grammy-Award winner Kendrick Lamar has not forgotten where he comes from. In the X-directed clip for his latest video “King Kunta” K.Dot rides through his beloved Compton city streets.
Whether it’s mobbin’ in a parking lot with friends, dancing on top of Compton’s Fashion Center with fans and loved ones watching below, or simply going to his neighborhood corner store, K.Dot shows the world despite the crime that takes place in the city, the sun shines in Compton too.
To Pimp A Butterfly is Kendrick Lamar’s sophomore release and his first number one album. The 27-year-old has been on a major press run to promote the 16-track musical opus, which sold 318,988 copies its first week.
