Kendrick Lamar has responded to a viral video showing a security guard crying during his performance of “Love” at a concert in Houston last week and said, “This is how you want everyone to get your music.”

The video has already garnered almost 12 million views tick tock from Thursday.
“That’s what music should do,” the rapper says of a security guard’s emotional viral video
Meanwhile, Lamar got wind of the 10-second clip and told 12-year-old reporter Jazzy about it Jazzy’s World TV that he wondered “what[Sanford]is going through,” but added that music should do just that.
“Ultimately, you want everyone to perceive your music in a way that you know makes them feel good, makes them feel connected for a moment [to]. It can live forever,” Lamar said to Jazzy.
The 14-time Grammy winner added that he wants his music and legacy to “influence and inspire people.”
“Through my music, I want to make sure that’s the legacy – showing people how to communicate – and it’s okay if you’re not perfect, it’s about embracing the beauty of imperfection,” he said.
said Sanford FOX 26 Houston that in 2013, when the song “Love” was first released, he was “going through a turbulent time in my life” and said that listening to it “brought me back”.
The security guard nearly missed the chance for the viral moment as he debated whether to buy tickets or work on the show, but said it would have had the same effect on him either way.
Caught up in emotions between the energy of the concert and the lyrics
Sanford said he was caught up in emotions between the energy of the concert and the lyrics of the song being performed.
“Kendrick Lamar is one of my favorite artists so I made sure to be there,” the security guard told Fox 26 Houston. “I debated whether or not I should just buy tickets or work on the show and I went for it, and it still had the same effect.”
“I just took in everyone’s emotions and tried my best to hold them together, but I just kind of cried,” he told the outlet.
Kendrick Lamar’s team contacts the security officer
Since Sanford went viral, Lamar’s team has reached out to him to send him free merchandise with a chance to meet the rapper at the table, too, Sanford says.
“They want to send me some free goods and I think I can talk to him or something. I’m not sure,” he said. “I’m still trying to process it all.”
