Kendrick Lamar released a New Song Praising Stretch Marks

Last night, Kendrick Lamar dropped a new song and music video for “Humble.” While rich with religious symbolism throughout, what really got people talking was the rapper’s ode to natural beauty–stretch marks, in particular. Halfway through the video, amidst frames of a woman going back and forth from full-on makeup and slicked back hair to a bare face and natural hair, he goes:

I’m so fuckin’ sick and tired of the Photoshop

Show me somethin’ natural like afro on Richard Pryor

Show me somethin’ natural like ass with some stretch marks

Still will take you down right on your mama’s couch in Polo socks, ayy
