Stephen Colbert knew exactly what he was doing when he asked Kendrick Lamar to be his final guest performer for the Colbert Report, and then asked him to be his first while hosting his new gig at The Late Show. Colbert wanted to go out with a bang and start with one.
It was an epic full circle moment when audience members saw K.Dot rocking newly braided hair, as he performed a medley of songs from his number one selling record To Pimp A Butterfly.
Backed by the same cast of musical geniuses that helped him give Colbert the proper send off, Ana Wise, Bilal, Thundercat and his band, gave an electrifying performance, setting the bar high for any future musical guests to come.
Watch K.Dot do what he does best.
