NOISEY Bompton: Live from Rosecrans (Part 3)

Compton is full of up-and-coming rap talent, some of which can be seen on the cover of Kendrick Lamar's 'To Pimp a Butterfly.' Artists like Boogie, Jay Worthy, Hitta J3, and Kalifornia King Special are busy building their music careers—while also trying to get by day to day.

In the third of six segments of Noisey Bompton, we stop in on an internet radio show with the Bompton artists as they promote their music and take a trip to a hotel later that night to find out how rapper Kalifornia King Special pays his bills. Then, we spend some time on Rosecrans Avenue with Hitta J3, whose song "Do Yo Gudda" has become Compton's latest dance craze. Surrounded by four generations of family, J3 and his mother share stories of the effects gang life has had on their family and neighborhood.

Noisey Bompton is a new documentary made by the people who brought you Noisey Atlanta and Noisey Chiraq. It's the first episode in an eight part series, NOISEY, on VICE's upcoming TV channel VICELAND. Each episode focuses on a different city, its major stars, and the stories and issues that influence its music scene.
