Kendrick Lamar’s “King Kunta” Video Bleeds Los Angeles

Wow…Kendrick’s latest video from the brilliant To Pimp A Butterfly is for “King Kunta” and it’s the most LA rap rap video I’ve seen since sometime in the 90’s. Directed by Director X, it’s filmed entirely in Compton, with shots at the Compton Swap Meet and in front of the house Kendrick grew up in. It feels like a new school gangsta party in the shades of classic LA rap videos like “Nuthin’ But A G Thang.”

Kendrick rocks the LA Dodgers hat throughout and we’ll forgive him for the Patriots varsity jacket, cause that old school logo is super fly and K-Dot pulls it off like a champ. Check it out:
