Over the past few weeks, Kendrick Lamar had been spotted out in his hometown for the making of a music video.
Well, it’s finally here, the visual to “King Kunta” finds the Compton emcee visiting the city that birthed him. Surrounded by low-lows, motor-bikes, fine thick women, corner stores, men draped in blue and red colors, the Compton Swapmeet, and an inside look into the average home in the hood, this video makes for a modern day homage to Dr. Dre’s “Nuthin’ But A G Thang”.
Kendrick Lamar has stated in recent interviews that some of the concepts for the video is actually reminiscent to Pac’s “California Love” remix video. Remember when Pac jumped on top of the roof of the swapmeet? We get a glimpse of K.Dot reenacting the same scene 15 years later.
What do y’all think?
