New Video Shows Security Guard Sobbing During Kendrick Lamar Concert

Kendrick Lamar’s tour is underway. His live performances since the release of his latest album, Mr. Morale and The Big Steppers, have had their emotionally charged moments. At Glastonbury, for example, Lamar voiced his support for women’s rights and talked about how “everybody’s going through something.”

One person who certainly seemed to be going through something was a security guard standing by the stage at a recent Kendrick concert. The man was visibly moved while Lamar performed, wiping tears from his eyes.

The security guard’s weeping came during Kendrick’s performance of “Love,” a song off of 2017’s DAMN. featuring Zacari. The guard collected himself enough to be able to sing along with the rapper, saying the line, “I’m like an exit away,” as he bobbed his head.

A video of the guard’s emotional moment was posted to TikTok and reposted to Twitter. It’s gotten a lot of attention. For the most part, people understand where the guard is coming from. “Me too bro me too,” wrote @MVRANTE. “Dream job,” @dirtyteetee added.
