Kendrick Lamar is said to be one of the most iconic rappers of all time. This is evidenced by his extremely well-written, intelligent lyrics along with some of the catchiest beats ever. The star recently performed in Houston on Friday.

The rapper was dropping bars on his performance of “Love,” and everyone was really into it. However, a video of a security guard right beside his stage crying went viral. The guard was feeling his performance with great intensity. Apparently, the rapper saw the video, and he had some good words for the man.

Lamar was part of an interview with Jazzy’s World TV. In a clip from the interview, the rapper got asked about how he felt about the reaction from the guard. Lamar said that he wondered what he was going through, but he expressed that he wants everyone to perceive his music like that.

It’s really just about the feeling of it at the end of the day. Past all the politics, past all the numbers. It’s what music makes you feel, how it makes you feel. So to see that … And shout-out to him by the way because I seen him, bro. I was like, man, I wonder what he going through? But at the end of the day that’s how you want everybody to perceive your music.

The song “Love” comes from the rapper’s critically acclaimed album 2017 album DAMN. His interview is yet to be released, as it’ll be available in full-length on Wednesday, and fans can catch it on YouTube.
