Stephen Colbert didn’t ask Kendrick Lamar to be his last guest performer on The Colbert Report and first performer on The Late Show for no reason. He knows what K. Dot is capable of and last night Kendrick didn’t fail to deliver.
Kendrick rocked cornrows and did a beautiful rendition of a number of songs from this years’ groundbreaking album, To Pimp a Butterfly. It was truly a special moment.
K. Dot was backed by a host of musical geniuses that have helped him throughout his career as well as “TPAB.” Those guests included Thundercat and his band, Ana Wise and Bilal. Whoever comes after K.Dot performing on The Late Show has their work cut out for them.
Check out some of the performance below.
