While Kendrick Lamar continues to embark on his “Big Steppers Tour,” his music is touching the lives of fans across the world.
In one particular instance, Lamar’s music brought a security guard to tears during a performance of his song, “Love,” from his critically acclaimed DAMN album.
The now-viral video shows a venue security guard as he stood on the side of the stage with tears in his eyes as he mouthed along the words to “Love” with Lamar.
When asked about the clip while backstage at Rolling Loud Miami on Sunday night (July 24), Lamar says at the end of the day, “it’s really just about the feeling.”
“It’s really about the feeling of it at the end of the day,” Lamar told Jazzy’s World TV. “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 shoutout 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.”
