Kendrick has always been candid about his roots in Compton through his music: from subjects of peer-pressur into a life of crime to the effects of police brutality on black youth.
“It reminds me of where I came from,” Kendrick remarked in the video. ”I can see they’re full of energy just like how I used to be. Full of motivation to do something with themselves. So hopefully ten years from now, they’ll be even further than where I’m at.’
“It’s a beautiful thing.”
