Earlier today, Kendrick Lamar appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform his To Pimp a Butterfly cut, "These Walls," and catch up with Ellen for a quick interview. Following the emotional performance, Kendrick and Ellen talked about Kendrick's recent "Generational Icon" award, which was given to him by the California State Senate, and just how he ended up appearing on Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" song and video. "Ah man, she reached out, you know I've always been a fan of hers, and she's a fan of my music, and she reached out and we got it done," Kendrick said.
