‘Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah Comes for Kanye West + Praises Kendrick Lamar
“Daily Show” host Trevor Noah was impressed with Kendrick’s performance at the Grammys but he can’t help but wonder if Kendrick is what Kanye could have been if he didn’t become part of the Kardashian clan.
The Hollywood Reporter writes:
Kendrick Lamar was widely praised on social media for his provocative, politically charged Grammys performance. Trevor Noah took to Twitter to compliment the rapper and took a dig at Kanye West in the process.
“Kendrick is what Kanye would have been if the Kardashians didn’t get him,” joked the Daily Show host.

For his performance, Lamar walked onstage as part of a chain gang while his band performed inside jail cells for his song “The Blacker the Berry.” He transitioned into “Alright” in front of a giant bonfire before debuting a new song about “modern-day slavery” and ending his performance with a map of Africa behind him with “Compton” written across it.
