NOISEY Bompton: "Growing up with Kendrick Lamar" - (Part 1)

Compton, California, is one of hip-hop's most celebrated locales, the birthplace of acts like N.W.A. and, more recently, Kendrick Lamar. It's also home to a complicated gang culture. Noisey Bompton centers around Kendrick Lamar and the friends he grew up with on the West Side of Compton, many of whom feature on the cover of his album 'To Pimp A Butterfly.' n the first of six segments, we sit down with Kendrick to talk about his acclaimed albums, pay a visit to his high school, Centennial, and get to know his childhood friend Lil L. Noisey Bompton is a new documentary made by the people who brought you Noisey Atlanta and Noisey Chiraq. It's the first episode in an eight part series, NOISEY, on VICE's upcoming TV network VICELAND. Each episode focuses on a different city, its major stars, and the stories and issues that influence its music scene. Noisey premieres on VICELAND March 1 at 10PM, and Tuesdays at the same time each week after that.
