Kendrick Lamar is pretty serious about his music, so much so that he did a rather intense stunt for his music video shoot in downtown L.A., where he was seen rapping on top of a street light yesterday.

Onlookers captured the To Pimp A Butterfly rapper on videos, showing him being held up by wires off of a suspension rig as he moved around on the street light on the corner of Figueroa and 11th streets. MTV News reported that Lamar was shooting the video for his "Alright" track, which is being helmed by famed director Colin Tilley, who's made music videos for big-name artists like Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber.

Just last week, Lamar was in the Bay Area filming another part of his music video, according to the East Bay Express. He was also suspended off the ground, but this time hanging by his feet.
