Kendrick Lamar Enlists LASD Deputies for Security at Compton Video Shoot



Kendrick Lamar is investing significantly in security for his upcoming video shoot in Compton, enlisting the help of LASD deputies.

According to TMZ, the acclaimed rapper is paying Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies $120 per hour to ensure the safety of himself, his team, and the community.

The extra security measures are unrelated to Kendrick’s recent tension with Drake. As reported, law enforcement is aware of the beef but no threats have been identified.

This video shoot caps off an exciting week for Kendrick, who recently turned his “Pop Out” concert into a family reunion by bringing ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and Ab-Soul onstage for a Black Hippy reunion.


During the concert, Kendrick and his former Top Dawg Entertainment crew performed ScHoolboy Q’s 2014 hit “Collard Greens.” Following that, Kendrick handed the stage over to ScHoolboy Q, who performed his 2016 track “THat Part.”

Kendrick also welcomed Jay Rock for performances of “Money Trees,” “Win,” and “King’s Dead,” with Ab-Soul joining for “6:16 in LA.”

Dr. Dre made a special appearance during the show, delivering the memorable “dead people” intro to Kendrick’s Drake diss “Not Like Us.”

Bringing Dre onstage, Kendrick asked, “You ain’t gonna say nothing else before we continue to party?” Dre replied, “Yeah, okay. I’m just gonna need a moment of silence for this one,” before introducing the diss track with, “Pssst. I see dead people.”


Dr. Dre then helped launch Kendrick into his latest hit, after performing his own classics “Still D.R.E.” and 2Pac’s “California Love.”
