Kendrick Lamar - i (SNL Performance)

  • Artist: Kendrick Lamar
  • Track: i (SNL Performance)
  • Producer: Rahki
  • Album: None

When Kendrick Lamar dropped i weeks ago it became instantly debated; a rift opened between those who felt it was a shallow play for pop acceptance and those who thought they heard deeper intentions. Whatever side of i you're on, if your side has changed or if you never had a size in the first place, I don't think Kendrick's intentions for i can really be understood without watching his recent live SNL performance of the single. Backed by a full band and rocking a look that can be best described as vintage Method Man, this is a live performance you have to see.
