Kendrick Lamar certainly had a blast shooting the upcoming music video for "Alright" over the weekend.
The TDE rapper recently hit Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay to film the follow-up to the visuals for his other "To Pimp a Butterfly" tracks, "i" and "King Kunta."
Also, snapshots and footage taken from the set surfaced online. The video was directed by Bay Area native Colin Tilley. It is expected to show Lamar crowd-surfing mid-air, lifted up by approximately 100 extras with flying dollar bills.

Was blessed to be apart of @Kendricklamar video shoot today. This pic by far is one of the best ones I've ever took. I'm still struct that I've gotten the chance to meet one of my fav artist in the game. #Xanderphotography A photo posted by Gabriel Brown (@ohimgabe) on May 23, 2015 at 12:25am PDT
Meanwhile, Dr. Dre's collaboration with K. Dot as well as Jeremih have leaked online.
"Tonight, we're gonna get badder (badder) / You're gonna get wetter (wetter)," the R&B crooner provided soulful vocals. "We're gonna take our time / Not tomorrow, no, tonight, we'll love / (F**king like we in love, we be f**king like we in love)."
After the "Don't Tell 'Em" hitmaker's hook, the "Straight Outta Compton" star hops on the smooth track, which samples the Root's 2009 hit "You Got Me" featuring Erykah Badu. He raps about hooking up with a woman who is already taken.
"Crack that last bottle, I'll kill it with you / Pour my feelings out and spill it with you / That's a no-no, but what he don't know / Never hurt him, so just desert him," he rapped in the song.
Lamar then seemingly plays the woman's other man on the second verse.
"I hear your phone on vibrate and I know it's him / But that's what happens when that kitty's in the lion's den," he spits in suspicion. "You start lying and changing places / You might've been, I might've been too aggressive."
