WATCH: Kendrick Lamar Blows “The Late Show” Away with Stellar “To Pimp a Butterfly” Medley

Good luck to every musical guest that has to follow him.

At this point it’s well-known that Kendrick Lamar has been shying away from playing almost anything off of his latest album—the incredible To Pimp a Butterfly—on tour. Last night, Lamar broke that habit by performing a Butterfly medley on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Colbert’s first (official) musical guest masterfully ran through four tracks from the unbeatable LP (“Wesley’s Theory,” “Momma,” “King Kunta,” “u”) with a live band featuring Thundercat.

Watch the dynamic performance below.
