Kendrick Lamar is an amazing MC. And that comes from someone who doesn’t particularly like present-day rappers.
However, as with every other modern-day rapper, Lamar’s lyrics are not for the faint-hearted. He curses, uses racial epithets, and talks about life on the streets.
These lyrics make sense in context, when spoken or sung over a hardcore beat. But what if Lamar tried his hand at country music instead? So, the same lyrics, but backed by a jaunty tune.
That’s exactly what this video shows, with some guy doing his best Kendrick Lamar impression, but over the top of country music. Genius.
