You can find Kedrick Lamar gracing SNL this Saturday with his musical talents. But in a recent interview he speaks on actually stepping into the acting role and getting in a few skits as well.
“Yeah, I’ll do a skit. We clown around in the studio all day; I can do it on TV in front of the camera,” Kendrick told MTV News before making an on-camera pitch to the show’s producers: “Put me in one of those skits ‘SNL’! Wassup?” On Saturday, the Compton, California, rap star will be holding down the “SNL” fort for the first time with Maroon 5’s Adam Levine, who will serve as the show’s host. For Lamar, the look will open him up to a broader audience, and he marveled at the idea of performing on the long-running sketch comedy show. (MTV)
Regardless of whether he scores a skit or not, Kendrick said he is excited to do what he does best on the celebrated sketch comedy show.
“‘SNL,’ that’s a whole ‘nother world, especially for a new artist in hip-hop. I’m blessed,” he said. “I’m fortunate to not only have the urban culture to be looking at my music, but just everybody around the world to feel the same way about it. And I just really appreciate everybody taking the time out to listen.” (MTV)
