Kendrick Lamar, who closed out Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, is fittingly one of Stephen Colbert’s first ever musical guests as he takes the seat on his new talk show, Colbert. Here Lamar performs a medley of a few choice cuts from his excellent To Pimp a Butterfly album, which dropped earlier this year. (For many, this is still the best rap album of 2015.) He does “Wesley’s Theory”, “Momma”, “King Kunta” and “u”. Check out the full performance from Kendrick Lamar and his backing band after the jump.

After he had a humorous back-and-forth with Colbert as they sat on the boxes holding Nas’s signed petition, Nasir performed his Fox News jab “Sly Fox.” The appearance definitely did not disappoint, and if you missed it check out a clip below…
