Kendrick Lamar definitely believes in quality over quantity.
The elusive rapper releases albums sparingly, rarely makes public appearances, and keeps functionality to a minimum. Even when it comes to the things he likes on Twitter, Kendrick Lamar only press the button on a few selected messages. In the 12 years since Kung Fu Kenny has been on the social media app – he joined in 2009 – he has only liked 16 tweets. So this is a rare opportunity for someone to see “Like by @KendrickLamar” in their notifications.
His very first liked tweet didn’t come until February 17, 2017, when he liked Nicki Minaj’s post. “I have officially regained all of my superpowers,” she tweeted. Since then, Kendrick’s likes on Twitter have been scarce and range from support from his label mates and other artists to super random video footage, fan art, and fun tweets.
A beloved article testifies to the extent to which the Grammy Award-winning artist has come. “Still remember that random Saturday in January 2011 when I told my pals I was going to a record store in Carson to see one of my favorite up-and-coming artists and no one wanted to ride with me because ‘they didn’t know who he was.’, one fan captioned a tweet of a photo of himself with a young K-Dot before release Section.80 album.
This week, Wednesday March 3, Kendrick liked his first Twitter post in over a year, giving the thumbs up to a comeback video of Jack Harlow rapping as a child.
