Funny he knew right away the sample from the Isley brothers. But he didn't recognize the driver in the video was lead singer Ron Isley


A telling fact is that he is one of the only rappers to ever win a Pulitzer Prize. Pretty impressive.


You must see him do this live on SNL!


Please react to n95 from kendrick lamar โค๏ธ


Please bring more kendrick reactions , just watched the kendrick lamar -alright reaction and just finished this one love the way you guys actually pay attention not just to the lyrics but the videos as well


bro I love this song. ever since it first dropped it always made my day a whole lot better


God is Gantsta is gone make you guys cry!!


Thanks for the referencing the Isley Brothers โ€œThat Ladyโ€, it helped. I maybe maybe wrong, but I think the Isley Brothers where featured in the video. Great work, Guys.


lmao I don't usually listen to intros but yours was kinda funny.


Amazing humility! Thank You Brothers โœŠ๐Ÿพ


Awesome reaction


Please listen to "sing about me, I'm dying of thirst" by Kendrick you won't regret


Honestly listening to one off song of Kendrick doesn't do him justice. He does nothint but concept albums where all the songs are just pieces in a over all message and how he structure his albums it just paints a vivid story


What's great is that this song is a single, when the album came out the song i was turned into a more raw live feeling version that gets interrupted towards the end by the mob he's preforming for, he then goes on to give a speech and an acapella. Kendricks music is very artistic to me


dropping bombs on morning songs I love it more stuff to dig in haha GREAT reactions love u guys good day to you all!!


you guys should listen to "how much a dollar cost" from kendrick ๐Ÿ™‚


please listen to live snl verson it is soooo much better in my opinoin


For some early kendrick, listen to Hiiipower


fyi, Ronald Isely is driving the car in the video and also singing background vocals on the song itself.


He's widely considered to be the best of his generation and I don't disagree! Always delivering necessary messages, but never in a ham fisted or preachy way. Not to mention the incredible artistry and lyrical ability. One of the best to do it


We also need some Thundercat reactions!


Maybe, since you already made "i", "u" should be next


Donโ€™t know if anyone said this, but u guys should listen to album version of i. Way different from the single version and better in my opinion. I know u 2 would love the message at the end of it


I think once you guys have run through a lot of the current artists of today, I would like to see your reactions to the kind of artists and groups that influenced the likes of Kendrick. I'm thinking A Tribe Called Quest, The Pharcyde, Souls of Mischief, Outkast etc.

I'm enjoying your stuff, gents.


Humble? You got to do humble! They would love that


you have to make a super video of the entire TPAB album. its a mind blowing experience and it changed my life


Amazing reaction


Yo guys.. here me out.. react to Covet Falkor or Yvette Young something from her.. it's her band anyway. Time for some really cool amazing and artful rock my dudes. <3 Love you guys! Keep it up!


Live version of this is far better in my opinion


React to the Indian rapper divine, 'city slums' and '3;59' and 'mirchi'.............


Iโ€™m so glad you immediately recognized the Isley Brothers sample!


Iโ€™m pretty sure the bassist is โ€œThundercatโ€ he would be a good one to check out. He makes a bass talk as some would say


The guy standing by the car at the end is one of the Isley Brothers!! Did you guys catch it?? Love that he included the guy he sampled from.


How can I pay you to react to element by Kendrick Fr fr we need that asap


Swimming pools - kendrick


You guys are doing great work. It not only means a lot and shows respect to the people who enjoy these different genres, it also sets an example for people who maybe prejudice towards another genre. This is how we learn about each other, and appreciate our similarities and differences as well. Again, great work guys!


Logic Under Pressure video is really good! Itโ€™s the shorter version of the song but really unique and I think you guys would like it!


You guys gotta listen to his albums in long form videos. Thatโ€™s how Kendrickโ€™s work is best enjoyed imo


You should react to Twenty One Pilots (My blood, nico and the niners, jumpsuit etc.)


Mac Miller ft. Ariana Grande- My Favorite Part. Beautiful song in a beautiful album. The 2 were a couple at the time of the songs release


M.A.A.D. City is next Kendrick song ๐Ÿ™




React to Dave - Black (Live at the Brits)
He is and english rapper itโ€™s an amazing piece on racism especially in the UK


For those that did not catch the special appearance, that is Ronald Isley of The Isley Brother that picks Kendrick Lamar up in the Caddy towards the end.


TBH, this and alright aren't really uplifting if you see them in the context of the album, specially this song. That's just how I see it tho, tpab can have a lot of interpretations


I wish you did the album version but he single version is still a good song. I don't know our its a live performance or if he made it sound like a live performance in the studio but it has an amazing extra verse that's just absolutely amazing


Listen to "u" from pimp to butterfly


I wish you guys could react to some of Colter Walls music, I have a feeling you would like it a lot.


All the good girls go to hell by Billie Eilish please.๐Ÿ’•


Hello again, I was just wondering if you guys could review โ€œALL AMERIKKAN BADA$$โ€ by Joey bada$$


Hello guys you need to reack to the new song of Florence and the machine, congrats for your channel, hugs from Portugal ๐Ÿ˜‰


I would love their reaction to a Thundercat song maybe black quills or themes change


Just in case if you don't know when Kendrick says Lucy he's referring to Lucifer


Spot on about The Isley Brothers.... you, however, missed that Mr. Ron Isley was the gentleman standing next to the car near the videos end. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜Ž


you should react to harry styles, sign of the times!


I love reaction , i love kendrick ๐Ÿคด๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘‘


A great song that just puts you in the right vibes as well is dots & lines by lupe fiasco.


Pls react to enemy-imagine dragons




Thoughtful reaction, very enjoyable. Now get on some UK rap! I suggest Dave - Black (I think the original is better but the Brit award live version is great too)


I wish you could react to the silk Sonic's cover of love's train


Huge fan of your channel you two old geezers ๐Ÿ˜…


Kendrick Lamar is a legend Im so glad you guys are watching this.


Hey guys! Love the videos and keep up the good work! Could yโ€™all react to โ€œWho Shot Cupidโ€ by Juice WRLD?


Can you guys please react to juice wrldโ€™s cigarettes music video.


If you guys really love the bass on this song, you should check out Thundercat. He did all the bass on this album


You should listen to the album version of this song (To Pimp A Butterfly is the name of the album) which is a Live version plus it has a little something extra at the end like a dialogue of Kendrick talking to the audience.


React to Santan Dave Lesley


โ€œThey try to compare us but just like a job straight from high school there is no โ€œUโ€ N โ€œIโ€ . I taught you everything you know now you got student โ€œPrideโ€ - Drake

What a clever witty diss to midget Kendrick ๐Ÿ’ฏ


Love your vids! Have you considered reacting to live performances? ๐Ÿ˜Š


Guys, that was Ron Isley in the video, and there was also cameo by George Clinton. The Isley brothers wrote this with Kendrick and instead of sampling they re-recorded which is so cool. It won 2 Grammys. You should check out Anderson .Paakโ€™s โ€œTintsโ€ featuring Kendrick. They are friends ( also w Thundercat ) and have great chemistry. โœŒ๐Ÿป


You guys should check up on Avicii


Please listen to Mac Ayres. I think y'all will love him


You should Also listen to U by kendrick lamar


You should forsure listen to mortal man Also by kendrick


THat Part by ScHoolboy Q ft. Kanye West


Do jesus walks - Kanye west


Whooooooooooooooooooooos That Lady young brotha!!


If neither of you have epilepsy, then check out DNA or Humble both by Kendrick. Both have videos.


Great reactions! You should check out u by Kendrick Lamar. There's no video, but it comes right before Alright on the album and it makes the songs that much more impactful.


the live version of this song hits different


Glad you guys recognize the sample๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ love the Isley brothers


Anyone recognized Roland Isley in the video? He was driving the car Kendrick was in.


try to listen to "Corso - Tyler the creator" amazing song with a cool video


NF - Remember this , Joyner Lucas - Happy Birthday would be cool !!!!!!


You should listen to J Cole- Wet Dreamz
Man paints a picture in this song
Greetings from Portugal, keep up the good work


Happy to find this channel


That playlist better have three little birds by bob Marley and the wailers if u starting your day with anything ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚


Kendrick Lamar x "Blacker The Berry".


since you guys have reacted to i, u should be next on the list! very powerful juxtaposition to the positivity of this song. the music video of "u" is titled god is gangsta


SUGAR by BROCKHAMPTON is definitely one to listen to!


Crooked Smile by J. Cole has one of the best music videos I've seen, definitely recommend it! Great videos guys


This is the music video version, I highly suggest you listen to the album version itโ€™s awesome

Another UPLIFTING song by Kendrick is Untiled 08


please react to welcome to the internet by bo burnham


Please resct to 'Swing & A Miss' by Oliver Tree


I really want you to react to some of bo burnham's videos, literally any of them would be nice but for starters lower your expectations, how the world works, comedy or straight white male. Also check out some strokes songs like at the door, ode to the mets, the adults are talking or bad decisions
