Kendrick Lamar is sick of President Trump killing his vibe.
The rapper, who addresses Trump’s presidency on several tracks on the “DAMN” album, said he’s done talking politics.
“I mean, it’s like beating a dead horse. We already know what it is. Are we gonna keep talking about it or are we gonna take action? You just get to a point where you’re tired of talking about it. It weighs you down and it drains your energy when you’re speaking about something or someone that’s completely ridiculous,” he told Rolling Stone.
“So, on and off the album, I took it upon myself to take action in my own community. On the record, I made an action to not speak about what’s going on in the world or the places they put us in. Speak on self; reflection of self first. That’s where the initial change will start from.”

On “XXX,” a single off of “DAMN,” Lamar describes “the great American flag” “wrapped and dragged with explosives.”
“Donald Trump’s in office, we lost Barack and promised to never doubt him again,” he raps.
