New Kendrick Lamar N95 Music Video Features Fort Worth Locations

The rapper’s latest music video for his song “N95” featured the Fort Worth Water Gardens and the Piano Pavilion at the Kimbell Art Museum.

FORT WORTH, Texas — Kendrick Lamar’s North Texas fans may have noticed some familiar sights in his latest music video.

The Grammy-winning rapper released the clip of his new song “N95” Saturday, and it quickly soared to 2 million views on YouTube.

To some fans’ surprise, at least two locations in the heart of Fort Worth could be seen in the video.

One of the locations appeared to be the Renzo Piano Pavilion auditorium at Kimbell Art Museum. This can be seen at the :53 mark of the video.

The Piano Pavilion was unveiled in 2013 and includes an art gallery, several studios, a library, and the 299-seat auditorium.

Perhaps the easiest attraction for North Texans to spot is the Fort Worth Water Gardens at the 1:24 mark. The video shows Lamar descending the steps of the Wet Wall and Silent Pool.

The iconic landmark was built in 1974 and is located just south of the Fort Worth Convention Center between Commerce and Houston streets.

Water gardens, however, are no stranger to pop culture.

The landmark was featured in the 1976 science fiction film “Logan’s Run” and another music video for “Almeda” by Solange Knowles.

Lamar has been following the trend recently after releasing not only “N95” but also a brand new album titled “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers”.

At 8 p.m. Saturday, the “N95” music video was the No. 2 trending video on YouTube, bringing many eyes to the city of Fort Worth.

North Texas fans will be able to see Lamar in person this summer as his final tour takes him to Dallas.

The hip-hop entertainer’s “Big Steppers Tour” is set to stop at American Airlines Center on July 23.
