Kendrick Lamar had quite the honor. The Compton MC appeared on this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live as musical guest. Introduced by host Adam Levine of Maroon 5, K.Dot appeared in all black with his live to perform his now certified platinum single “Swimming Pools (Drank).” Stripping off the heavy winter gear, Lamar returned for a smooth live rendition of his Scoop DeVille-produced gem “Poetic Justice.” Both singles appears on Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city debut album, which you can buy on iTunes.
