Over the weekend, Chris filmed the music video for “They Don’t Know” in Compton, California.

“I shot it in the ‘hood,” he explained at a press conference for the BET Awards. “I went to 60th Street and Cedar Block. [I'm] bringing both worlds together and trying to uplift the poverty side of the community and show them where I’m from. I’m from Virginia, but everybody comes from a broken home or being broke. I remember when I was.”

X will be released on July 16.
