1) Walking: One, Two, Three, limp, One, Two, Three, limp

Kendrick Lamar is making his moves as a King Kunta leading with shackled feet

He’s actually about to stand as an avenger for his people like a kind of Django Unchained

This is why this is black superhero music: he fights something that’s bigger than us.

2) Body institutionalized in these walls

Standing as a cell prisoner, or as a modern age slave,

Kendrick speaks his truth like at a trial

While the violence of the music strikes his back  like whips

3) Body  locked, but mind free and spirit lifted

King Kendrick aka King Kunta fulfills his Visions of Martin Luther staring at him (Hiii Power song)

Putting on stage an actual slave revolutionary and uses this performance to highlight the Black community issues on TV (My issue isn’t televised – Hiii Power song)

Time is for freedom.

4) Meaningful African Dances Around Fire

Gathering around fire is a traditional act.

Dances teach social patterns and values.

It helps people work, mature, praise or criticize members of the community

While celebrating festivals and funerals, competing, reciting history, proverbs and poetry; and

To encounter God (Fire of God).

5) Gets back to the American audience

Kendrick delivers this poem, this message

Claiming Black Power against white supremacy,

Against racial oppression, to the establishment of social institutions and a self-sufficient economy.

In this month of Black History,

That Kendrick whotries to celebrate February like it’s my B-Day” (Blacker The Berry song),

And until the end, until the 28th and the 29th of this month,

He claims the royalty of an emperor from Africa getting off the slave boats #NEGUS

Looking for Hope, looking Hiii Power (self-love consisting of heart, honor and respect)

While daring pushing his fingers into the lethal pain of America named Trayvon Martin (February 26th, 2012)…

For the depth of his show and the provocative angry, hurt yet hopeful message

This is the most outstanding performance at the 58th Grammys.
