Kendrick Lamar’s victory lap continues as he was spotted shooting the visual for his Mustard-produced Drake diss track “Not Like Us” in Compton, Calif., over the weekend.

K. Dot brought Mustard along with him, and they were moving around his hometown for the video shoot on Saturday afternoon (June 22).


Complex was on the scene when YG pulled up to the video set, and other footage captured Lamar at spots around the city such as Compton City Hall, Tam’s Burgers and the Nickerson Gardens projects. Videos from fans surfaced in what looked like a block party, as everyone surrounded K. Dot and sang along to the Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit, the fourth of his career. According to NBC News Los Angeles, hundreds of fans showed up for the filming.

It’s unclear when Lamar plans to drop the visual. Billboard has reached out to his reps for comment.

“[Kendrick’s] bringing back brotherhood and positivity back to Compton,” one fan said to Complex of the buzzing unity in the city thanks to Lamar.

Lamar delivered a memorable experience for fans at his Pop Out concert when he took over the Kia Forum on Juneteenth (June 19).

The Compton native unleashed the live debuts of Drake disses such as “Like That,” “Euphoria” and “Not Like Us,” which he performed five times in a row and brought several L.A. luminaries with him on stage to figuratively dance on Drake’s grave.

Snoop Dogg was blown away by Kendrick being able to unit different sections of the city under one roof peacefully that night and crowned him king of the West.
