Kendrick Lamar Releases 'King Kunta' Music Video

(Radio.com) Kendrick Lamar is going back--way, way back--to the Compton Swap Meet in his new video for "King Kunta." The video, which premiered in Times Square on a Beats By Dre billboard, has Kendrick hitting up the Compton Swap Meet, a store he has admitted he's spent a lot of time in when he was little.

The clip, helmed by Directed X, who has worked with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj, is also a throwback to those '90s videos from Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. Kendrick's clip even comes complete with lowriders and some booty dancers.

In the end, Kendrick ends up on top of the store's roof letting everyone know who's in charge. Whether you believe Kendrick is the King of Hip-Hop or not, you can't deny that he's the King of the Compton Swap Meet.

Recently, Kendrick performed in his home state of California on the back of a moving truck, which had fans running alongside the vehicle to catch a glimpse of the rapper.
