With the exception of “i,” it’s pretty obvious that Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly isn’t as geared towards radio as good kid, m.A.A.d city was. Still, it seems that all everybody wants to talk about is what song sounds most like a “single.” Well, it looks like the much-hyped “King Kunta” is up next as the second video from K. Dot’s sophomore project.

Section Eighty recently caught a glimpse of the TDE rapper shooting the video in his hometown of Compton (where else?), and it looks like a blast. I can’t wait for that full crip-walking-on-the-Compton-Fashion-Center scene.

Watch the behind-the-scenes clip below…
