Kendrick Lamar’s biggest fan could not keep it together after listening to K. Dot’s latest album, “DAMN."
On Saturday, Lamar posted an album review that only a mother could write to his Instagram account. In an emoji-riddled text message, his mother, Paula Oliver, made it clear that she was in awe of her son’s latest work.
“OMG. This cd is bombbbbb! 😩 😩 😩,” his mom’s praise begins. “You should of put me and your daddy on this one too 😜 😜 j/k.”
(In Lamar’s “Good Kid, m.A.A.d City,” a duo posing as his parents make a comical appearance toward the end of “Money Trees.”)
”This your best one to me, no bullshit 💯,” she continued. The text also relays that his mom isn’t the only fan of the album. Someone else whom Oliver refers to as “lil ken ken” is said to have been milly rocking to “DAMN.”
Lamar’s studio work isn’t the only reason the rapper has been making rounds in the news. As one of this year’s Coachella headliners, he wowed fans as he closed last weekend’s performances with a midair rendition of “Money Trees.”
While mama Oliver wasn’t able to watch the performance, she said she heard about the set from Lamar’s fans, whom she refers to as “diehards.”
The “Humble” rapper acknowledged his mother’s acclaim with the praying hands emoji. But he seemed to be most intrigued by Oliver’s own use of emojis.
“You going emoji brazy. Who taught you ‘💯 ’? Lol,” he responded.
Who knows, K. Dot. They’re getting so advanced these days.
