On August 24, 2011, Lamar released the music video for the Section. 80 track, "ADHD". The video was directed by Vashtie Kola who had this to say of the video: "Inspired by "A. D. H. D"'s dark beat and melancholy lyrics which explore a generation in conflict, we find Kendrick Lamar in a video that illustrates the songs[sic] universal and age-old theme of apathetic youth. (…) Shot in New York City during the sweltering July Summer heat". In October 2011, Lamar appeared alongside fellow American rappers B. o. B, Tech N9ne, MGK, and Big K. R. I.

Album, Tech N9ne's All 6's and 7's, 9th Wonder's The Wonder Years and Canadian recording artist Drake's Grammy Award-winning Take Care, which featured Lamar on a solo track.
