Kendrick Lamar is currently on his Big Steppers Tour, which also includes Baby Keem. The Compton MC puts on an incredible performance at his gigs, as seen by videos on the internet.
One of the most popular videos was of a security guard crying during Kendrik’s live performance of the DAMN track “Love.”
The clip shows the security guard wiping away tears while the 35-year-old artist raps:
“I know Top will be mad at me / I had to do it, I want your body, your music / I bought the big one to prove it / Look what you made / Told you that I am on the way / I am like an exit away.”

In an interview with Jazzy’s World TV, Kendrick admitted seeing the footage in question. The “DNA” rapper explained that the emotion his music may evoke in his listeners is the most significant aspect of his work.
“It is really just about the feeling of it at the end of the day,” he said. “Past all the politics, past all the numbers. It is what music makes you feel, how it makes you feel.”
Kendrick also gave a shout-out to the security guard, saying:
“I have seen him, bro. I was like, ‘Man, I wonder what is he going through?’ But at the end of the day, that is how you want everybody to perceive your music. Make them feel good. Make them feel like the moment they’re attached to. Make it live forever.”
