The Pulitzer Prize-winning rapper shared his thoughts on the security guard’s emotional moment in a new interview with Jazzy’s World TV. Kendrick Lamar reflected on the impact of his music while chatting with youngster Jazlyn Guerra at Rolling Loud Miami 2022.
“It’s really just ‘bout the feeling of it,” he said. “At the end of the day – past all the politics, past all the numbers – it’s what music make you feel, how it make you feel. So, to see that—and shoutout to him by the way because I seen bro. I was like, ‘I wonder what he going through?’ But at the end of the day, that’s how you want everybody to perceive your music. And make ‘em feel good, make ‘em feel like a moment they’re attached to. It can live forever.”
Kendrick Lamar is currently touring in support of his latest album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. The LP dropped in May and marked his final release for his longtime label Top Dawg Entertainment.
