Rapper Kendrick Lamar braved great heights in downtown Los Angeles Thursday while filming his music video for his new song "Alright."

The rapper mounted a street light at Figueroa and 11th streets, near L.A. Live.

The track, a collaboration with Pharrell Williams, is from his third studio album "To Pimp a Butterfly," which was released in March.

Lamar was suspended by cables from an overhead crane. A release date for the video has not been set.

The two-time Grammy Award winner, who was born and raised in Compton, was recognized for his charitable work earlier this month by the California Senate.
