Kendrick Lamar Does Rare Performance On Ellen, ‘These Walls’

“Rolling Stone magazine called our next guest ‘the greatest rapper of his generation,’ but he is so much more than that. He is an artist, a poet, a lyrical genius and the State of California recently honoured him for being a ‘Positive Icon’,” Ellen Degeneres introduces Kendrick Lamar, ahead of a rare live TV performance. 

Life goals, daytime TV introduction goals. 

Performing a stirring live rendition of ‘These Walls’ alongside ballroom dancers, and with an artist painting a portrait of the performance in real time, Kendrick upholds his contractual obligation to consistently slay, and pimps a daytime TV slot beyond recognition.
