Kendrick Lamar’s “Backseat Freestyle” Video: Watch K-Dot Go From Compton To Paris

Kendrick Lamar‘s “Backseat Freestyle” finds the Compton MC spitting a good, old-fashioned batch of thudding, in-your-face boasts (including the silly/brilliant “I pray my dick get big as the Eiffel Tower / So I can fuck the world for 72 hours.”) The black-and-white video is equally blunt, showing K-Dot going from Compton to Paris to see exactly how big the Eiffel Tower is.

In between, there’s a spoken interlude centering on that evasive Domino’s pizza from Lamar’s stellar good kid, m.A.A.d city, and an extended shot of him standing motionless next to a car’s trunk as “Sherane” shakes the junk in hers. The clip was directed by Jerome D, Dave Free and K-Dot but, as The Fader points out, this is not the short film Lamar hinted at in a recent GQ interview.
