Have you ever thought about what your superhero name would be? Kendrick Lamar has, and it's pretty awesome. In an extra helping from his Mass Appeal cover story, K Dot revealed that his alter ego would be named "Hard Body."
The Compton MC would be so untouchable that he wouldn't need a corny uniform like the other iconic superheroes (sorry, Batman) to be taken seriously. "That's the catch," he said. "It's whatever the environment he's in. He chameleons into that environment. No mask no nothing. You don't see him coming."
While your quintessential superheroes have the basic powers of super strength and X-ray vision, Hard Body's goes a bit deeper. His super strength would be love, which he said he would use to battle hate in the streets and corporate America. "His energy builds up to the next man and builds up all the way around the world," he said.
And, no shade to Batman again, but don't expect Hard Body to roll up in a Batmobile — he leans a bit more on the conservative side. "He might pull up in a Pinto, a two-door Honda or something like that," he said. "Or if he's in a pristine spot, he might pull up in a Bimmer."
K Dot — I mean, Hard Body — is for world peace, affordability and transparency!
