Kendrick Lamar Premieres New Clip 'Backstreet Freestyle'


The 'good kid, m.A.A.d city' rapper presents a self-directed artsy video filled with black-and-white images of his Compton backyard and the Eiffel Tower.

Looks like hip-hop star Kendrick Lamar wants to make sure that he is even more productive this New Year and wastes no time in dishing out something new for his fans. The 25-year-old rapper just dropped his new video for "Backstreet Freestyle" taken from his debut set "good kid, m.A.A.d city". The clip contains artsy and high-contrast black-and-white images of Lamar from his old neighborhood to international locations.

K-Dot's self-directed video kicks off with a quick montage of visuals from his Compton backyard, which were treated with filmic, grainy effects and shot documentary style. More of the candid, real-life feel for the video come from shots of Lamar's family. There are cameo appearances from Papa Lamar and his goddamn Domino's, K-Dot's mom, and an ass-shaking Sherane.

The journey then takes viewers from the Compton neighborhood to a more international set-up as Lamar shows clips of the Eiffel Tower. The 2012 break-out star walks with a contemplative stance and raps in front of the familiar Paris landmark. The scene looks like something straight from a movie, which is not surprising since the "The Jig Is Up (Dump'n)" hitmaker had also hinted on making a short film inspired by his critically-acclaimed debut album.

"good kid, m.A.A.d city" sold over 240, 000 copies in its first week. It has been certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America( RIAA) and HipHop DX named Lamar as the Emcee of the year for 2012.
