“A Day In Ghana With Kendrick Lamar” A Documentary Of His Visit To Ghana Released [WATCH]
On his 35th birthday, Kendrick Lamar releases a mini-documentary about his first journey to Ghana.
The documentary, titled A Day in Accra, Ghana, was shot immediately after the release of his current album, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, and chronicles his trip to the African country.
The Compton rapper greets kids at Virgil Abloh’s Ghana Freedom skatepark in the Spotify-sponsored video. Accra’s bustling activity is also seen in the film, as well as overhead views of the coastline.
K Dot discusses being present during the trip with Spotify Head of Urban Music and Creative Director Carl Chery, as well as how he aims to reverse the stigma surrounding treatment on his new album.
“We learned to hold all our s**t in,” he said, adding how he “challenges myself to go to therapy…it’s like a whole new step in a whole new generation… it’s growth.”
“Everybody got their own different experience,” Kendrick continues.
“Everything that we do out here, everything that we say, that’s been done… It’s all a representation of all of us.”
Lamar was accompanied by pgLang co-founder Dave Free, longterm lover Whitney Alford, and photographer Renell Mendrano on his journey to Ghana.
