Kendrick Lamar is giving fans a glimpse of his recent trip to Japan.

On Thursday, the Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers rapper took to his burner account on Instagram (@jojoruski) to share pictures from the vacation.

The series of photos begins with one of Kendrick alongside BAPE founder NIGO, and features the Compton native outfitted in a bucket hat, t-shirt, Acne Studios jeans, and a pair of CC Climbing Shoes from the Korean brand, SEAO-KR.

Kendrick's Instagram post also featured photos of the rapper shopping for CDs at Tower Records, where he appeared to buy copies of Dr. Dre's first two solo albums, 1992's The Chronic and 1999's 2001.

The photo dump is highlighted by a tribute to 2Pac, as Kendrick honored the late legend on the 27th anniversary of his death by posting a picture of himself wearing a graphic t-shirt of the All Eyez On Me rapper.

Earlier this summer, Kendrick fans noticed the burner account, which at the time already featured an array of personal flicks of Kendrick. The "N95" rapper follows the account, which prior to June was previously set to private. Days after going public, @jojoruski compiled more than 285,000 followers. It currently has 761,000 followers.
