Kendrick Lamar is prepping his major label debut via Aftermath/Interscope/TDE, and the first single he released from the LP was the Dr. Dre-featured “The Recipe” in April. K. Dot joined Dre at Coachella to perform the single and this week they were out in Los Angeles filming the accompanying video.
Kendrick’s fellow Black Hippy members SchoolBoy Q and Ab-Soul joined him on set, and Schoolboy shared a few Instagram photos. The shoot was set poolside, on one of Los Angeles’ rolling hills. True to the song’s chorus, there plenty of women, the weather looked beautiful, but we can’t speculate on the weed.
In June, Kendrick will head out on tour with Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller on their Under the Influence of Music tour. “Man I’m anticipating a whole bunch of energy. They gonna let me down if I don’t get the energy,” Kendrick Lamar told MTV News over the phone on April 17, the same day the tour was announced. “I gotta get a whole bunch of wild mother–kers who just wanna party and hear good music.”
“I like to look mother–kers dead in their eye and get the response that I’m looking for and make them believers,” he said, of his performances. “Even the folks that don’t know Kendrick Lamar music, once I make that connection on stage and bring those songs to life, they will eventually be in support of the whole movement.”
