Kendrick portrays a homeless crackhead named Laces, and he absolutely kills it.
Ever wanted to see Kendrick Lamar as a homeless crackhead? Well, now you can… he’s made his acting debut in 50 Cent’s TV show Power.
In the available scene, Lamar’s character distracts one of 50 Cent’s enemies, who then proceeds to gun the man down while riding a bicycle.
“I can take his wallet too, right?,” Lamar asks 50 Cent, who then responds; “I don’t give a fuck, take his shoes too.” Lamar then treats us all to a little celebratory dance. It’s great.

“He’s really gifted, tremendously gifted. I mean it’s a total transformation. It is not a version of Kendrick Lamar that you’ve ever seen before. So it’s very exciting,” Power’s producer Courtney Kemp told Associated Press.
Do yourself a favour and watch a scene from the episode above, and stream Power over at Stan.
