Kendrick Lamar's Soulful Performance on SNL





It's no secret Kendrick Lamar is not one for the spotlight. He has been M.I.A for the last year or so buried in the studio working on his highly anticipated 2nd studio
album. However, according to a recent interview with Power 105's the Breakfast club Kendrick states Top Dawg, his mentor and CEO of TDE made him do it: thanks Top Dawg. Who knows how long Kendrick would hibernate. Either way with the release of "I" and "Pay for it" records with label mate Jay Rock Kendrick has no doubt made his return evident. More notably with his latest performance on this past week's Saturday Night Live 11/15/14. With a look of distress and black contact lens Kendrick's appearance was dramatic, dark and far from the positive attributes we know him for. It was clear he came with a deeper message, he came to capture your soul. He is not a rapper he an artist and wants to make sure we never forget that. I can't say this was one of my favorite performances but I am anticipating his album even more.
