He played a financial planner, dishing out advice through his raps.

    Dear Kendrick,

    I thought your performance on SNL was incredible. I can tell you love what you do. I am proud of you. You know how you want the band to sound and you know how to feel what you’re doing. The thing I felt bad about I felt like at the end of the show they kind of blocked you out. If it wasn’t for you they probably would get a horrible rating for tonites show. But you’re a strong guy. We canlearn from all of our experiences. Much Love

    Last but not least. Poetic Justice. I loved the way you used any time any place brilliant I was waiting for Janet jackson to come out in some dookie braids lol.

    I am over 50 years old but I love music i use to sing in a band in the 70′s.I also know when I here a message that’s just makes you smile because the song is so great. My nephew told me to look you up on utbe a year ago. and I was floored. He also told me about A$ap and Joey bada$$ thank good for new people.
