Rocking blacked-out contact lenses and half-braided hair, Kendrick Lamar’s SNL performance drew comparisons to a bunch of people/things, in particular Tical-era Method Man and Ol’ Dirty Bastard. While no one knows for sure who (or what) K. Dot was paying homage to, RZA, like the rest of us, took his performance as a Wu-Tang tribute and praised the TDE rapper. “It made me nod my head, nah mean?” he said in a very RZA-like way while speaking to MTV News.
The Abbot also revealed he and the rest of the Wu celebrated ODB’s birthday, which fell on the same day as Kendrick’s performance, with a kung-fu movie night in L.A. and cake. R.I.P. Russell Jones.
