Kendrick Lamar's going worldwide.

The hip-hop star's "Backseat Freestyle" finds him rapping from Compton to Paris, where he drops rhymes about the Eiffel Tower under the lit-up monument.

Kendrick Lamar: The Story Behind 'good kid, m.A.A.d city'

Lamar himself co-directed the analog-style black-and-white video, which lingers on a shot of a woman -- identified as Sherane, a character who appears earlier on the "good kid, m.A.A.d. city" album -- shaking her rear from the side of a classic car.

The video is the latest cut from Lamar's breakthrough album, which bowed at No. 1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and No. 2 on the Billboard 200 last year with a 241,000-copy debut.
