Kendrick Lamar returned to SNL with a bang last night.
Not only did Kendrick appear in a skit called “Young Tarts & Old Farts, but the Compton rapper performed twice, including a performance with Canadian singer Chantal Kreviazuk and rapper Jay Rock. While the rapping was on point, of course, one of the most notable parts of Kendrick’s triumphant return was his attire: The Compton star rocked his hair half-braided and wore all black contacts in his eyes.
The outfit sent the streets of Twitter into frenzy. Some followers called him Lafayette from the series “True Blood,” while others figured out his likely inspiration. Yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of Method man’s debut solo album “Tical.” Method man was known for his crazy hairstyles, aka those braids, and wearing all black contacts as Kendrick did.
Judging by viewer reaction, Kendrick’s performance will undoubtedly earn a spot on SNL’s best performances list. His attire, energy, and famous dance moves were simply the icing on the cake.
