Kendrick spoke about growing up in Compton and he was able to stay away from the gang life and focus on music. He said,

“When you hear these stories in good kid, m.A.A.d city, when you hear these stories in To Pimp a Butterfly, it’s a little bit deeper than just music. It’s cats out here really trying to do something and really try to spark the idea of positivity.”

In the documentary, we see a lot of Kendricks old teachers and childhood friends speak on his success.
