When one thinks of West Coast rap, some names that come to the surface would be N.W.A., Snoop Dogg, Tupac and many more. In today’s age, Kendrick Lamar has certainly received the torch from his predecessors and hasn’t looked back since. Hailing from Compton, referred to as “Bompton” for many, Kendrick has released two unforgettable albums in good kid, m.A.A.D city and the more recent To Pimp a Butterfly. In a new series presented by Noisey, those who may not be entirely familiar with the culture that Kendrick Lamar refers to within his music will be provided with a first hand experience of those who surrounded him during his upbringing along with sharing his own personal memories in “Bompton.” Dubbed NOISEY Bompton: Growing Up with Kendrick Lamar, take a trip with K Dot in the series’ inaugural episode above.
