Just last week it was revealed that Grammy and Pulitzer Prize winner Kendrick Lamar would be making his acting debut on an upcoming episode of the 50 Cent-helmed series, Power. Having only aired a few hours ago on Starz, the Internet quickly blew up following Lamar’s debut to which he played a homeless man named Laces who tries to sell 50 Cent’s character, Kanan, some gift cards. Soon after, 50 pulls a gun on him. The full clip from Power‘s “Happy Birthday” episode can be seen below, along with fans reactions.

Executive producer Mark Canton has spoken on Lamar’s role in the following statement, “Kendrick is a once in a generation talent and Courtney, 50 and I felt it would be exciting to create a role for him in Power. Everyone involved is thrilled to have him join the family.”

In case you’ve missed it, Kendrick Lamar lands at No. 37 with $58 million USD on Forbes‘ Highest-Paid Entertainers of 2018 list.
