  • - "Rolling Stone" magazine called our next guest

  • "The greatest rapper of his generation,"

  • but he is so much more than that.

  • He is an artist, a poet, a lyrical genius,

  • and the state of California recently honored him

  • for being a positive icon.

  • In a very rare television appearance,

  • please welcome the incredible

  • Kendrick Lamar.

  • [cheers and applause]

  • [Keyboard music begins]

  • - Life is full of up and downs,

  • Twists and turns,

  • But somehow we keep on stepping.

  • [rapping] If these walls could talk,

  • They'd tell me to swim good

  • No boat, I float better than he would

  • No life jacket, I'm not the God of Nazareth

  • But your flood can be misunderstood

  • Walls telling me they full of pain, resentment

  • Need someone to live in them just to relieve tension

  • Me? I'm just a tenant

  • Landlord said these walls vacant more than a minute

  • These walls are vulnerable, exclamation

  • Interior pink, color coordinated

  • I interrogated, every nook and cranny

  • I mean, it's still amazing-- before, they couldn't stand me

  • These walls want to cry tears

  • These walls happier when I'm here

  • These walls never could hold up

  • Every time I come around demolition might crush

  • (women singing) If these walls could talk

  • - Step, step.

  • (man singing) I can feel your reign when it cries

  • Gold lives inside of you

  • - Step. - If these walls could talk

  • - I love it when I'm in it I love it when I'm in it

  • Ah-ah.

  • [rapping] - If these walls could talk

  • They'd tell me to go deep

  • Yelling at me continuously, I can see

  • Your defense mechanism is my decision

  • Knock these walls down, that's my religion

  • Walls feeling like they ready to close in

  • I suffocate, then catch my second wind

  • I resonate in these walls

  • I don't know how long I can wait in these walls

  • I've been on these streets too long

  • Looking at you from the outside in

  • They sing the same old song

  • About how they walls always the cleanest

  • I beg to differ, I'd rather miss them

  • I'd rather call I'd rather diss them

  • I'd rather fall on you, put your wall up

  • Cause when I come around, demolition gon' crush

  • - If these walls could talk

  • - Uh.

  • - I can feel your reign when it cries,

  • - Shot down, step. - Gold lives inside of you

  • - Step - If these walls could talk

  • - Step

  • - I love it when I'm in it - Toe, step.

  • - I love it when I'm in it - [indistinct], step.

  • Uh.

  • And reality is,

  • Sometimes through these ups and downs

  • You gotta know when to lead or to follow.

  • Keep stepping.

  • Shot down.

  • If your walls could talk, they'd tell you it's too late

  • Your destiny, accepted your fate

  • Burn accessories and stash them where they are

  • Take the recipe, the Bible and God

  • Wall telling you that commissary is low

  • Race wars happening, no calling CO

  • No calling your homie to save you

  • Homies to say you're reputable, not acceptable

  • Your behavior is Sammy Da Bull like

  • A killer that turned snitch

  • Walls is telling me you, You pray for appeals,

  • Hoping the warden will afford them

  • - That sentence so important

  • - Wall telling you to listen to "Sing About Me"

  • Retaliation is strong, you even dream about me

  • Killed my homeboy and God spared your life

  • Dumb criminal got indicted the same night

  • So when you play this song, rewind the first verse

  • About me abusing my power so you can hurt

  • About me and her in the shower whenever she horny

  • About me and her in the after hours of the morning

  • About her baby daddy that's currently serving life

  • How she think about you until we meet up at night

  • About the only girl that cared about you when you asked her

  • And how she messing with a famous rapper

  • Walls could talk - If these walls could talk

  • - Hey, yeah.

  • [singing] I can feel your reign when it cries.

  • Gold lives inside of you.

  • Yeah. Hey!

  • I love it when I'm in it

  • What does that mean--when you're honored as a positive icon,

  • it's a lot of kids in my neighborhood,

  • that's watching TV and saying, "You know what?

  • "I want to be a positive influence

  • just like Kendrick Lamar,"

  • or whoever's out there doing something for the good
