Kendric Lamar's has reportedly picked "King Kunta" as his next radio single, so naturally, he's got a video on the way. Last night, Kendrick put that video into motion, as he gathered a crowd at the Compton Swap Meet for the shoot, and hopped on top of a building while the crowd mobbed in the parking lot. There's some additional footage from a daytime shoot as well, and from the looks of it, Director X is behind the camera on this video. This will be Kendrick's second video from his To Pimp a Butterfly album, following the video for "i," which he released last year. Kendrick's album is available to purchase on iTunes here.
K dot filmed the #KingKunta video last night at the Compton Swap Meet. As a black man born to a woman who was raised on the Westside of #Compton, #Fruittown to be exact, this makes me proud. #rap #hiphop #LA #tpab
