‘Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah Comes for Kanye West + Praises Kendrick Lamar

By  | 

“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.

    I disagree. Kanye can’t even write his own lyrics.

      Thank you. People just don’t want to accept that the Kanye we are seeing now is the real Kanye. Who he was a few albums ago is the product of woke writers he no longer works with. So you can’t blame this on the Kardashians. Kanye fits in with them because he’s just like them. They didn’t have to convert him.

      True. Kendrick has raw talent, and Kanye for the most part just had a great ear for beats and good taste in writers. I’m thinking his money problems is why he had to part ways with most of them.

    Nah, Kendrick has more talent and substance than Kanye could ever have Kardashians or not.

    The crazy thing is I was thinking the same thing during Kendrick’s performance.

    The biggest downfall for him besides his mother dying was to loose that close relationship with some of his old friends because of marrying into that K family. Him and Jay Z used to be inseparable. Rhymefest ditched him a month ago. His ego is too big to admit that though. I don’t blame them either for wanting to separate themselves from him. He is now surrounded by Yesmen as opposed to Jay Z who would definitely tell him like it is.

    Kanye has more classic albums than Kendrick, but his good days are over. Kendrick will surpass him.

    Don’t even like Kim or her gross family but they can’t be blamed for Kanye’s fall. He did it to himself. He got way too arrogant and the whole time he was using writers and had a good team behind him he treated like sh-t. So now those people don’t want anything to do with him. His albums will never be good again.

    Kanye lost his mind before he got with the kardashians.

    I just think Kanye’s time on top has passed. It was a good run but when you let your ego get to you and surround yourself with nothing but yes men, you’re bound to lose your spot to someone much more deserving. Kendrick will probably go down as one of the goats. Kanye won’t now because now when we hear his name, we associate him with mental illness and the kardashians. Just my two cents!
