Kendrick Lamar hires sheriff's deputies as security for upcoming Compton video shoot

Kendrick Lamar is taking no chances for his upcoming video shoot in Compton, enlisting extra security from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department to ensure the safety of everyone involved.

Rumors have been swirling all week that Lamar was preparing to shoot the visuals for his Drake “Not Like Us” speech. Rumor had it that K. Dot was planning “something big in Compton this Saturday,” and fans were encouraged to keep their eyes peeled.

On Thursday, police sources confirmed the rumors, according to TMZ. The sheriff's department planned to have “deputies for additional security” on site at different locations in Compton throughout the filming.

Despite the added security, the outlet reported, “no known threats have surfaced at this time.” However, like most of the planet, law enforcement is aware of K. Dot's recent battle with Drake and will keep their eyes peeled for trouble.

There have been several security threats related to various players during the Dissident War, including multiple shootings. Police visited the OVO founder's Toronto mansion three times in seven days.

On May 7, an intruder shot a security guard who was standing outside the gates of the property. The same week, two intruders attempted to break into the house.

Additionally, in April, a security guard was shot and killed at the home of The Weeknd's manager. Both incidents occurred weeks after Drake and The Weeknd exchanged wax shots.

Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar has reportedly already shot footage for the video during his epic Juneteenth concert, The Pop Out: Ken & Friends. The one-off show took place at the KIA Forum in Los Angeles on Wednesday, June 18.
