Kendrick Lamar Debuts New Song On ‘The Colbert Report’

Dressed in all black and sprouting some baby ‘locs, Kendrick Lamar stopped by the Colbert Report to perform a new single from his yet untitled and unreleased album. Stephen Colbert is pulling out all the stops as he packs up his show before taking over The Late Show. Colbert joked with K.Dot, inquiring if he was indeed straight out of Compton or are there some detours. Kendrick showed off his superior lyrical abilities by rhyming Colbert with “no hair” (bars!) and spoke in length about why he prefers to be called a writer and not a rapper, for which Colbert then asked if he listened to one of his albums, would it be the equivalent to reading a book? Peep the exchange and watch Kendrick’s performance above.
