Stephen Colbert's Late Show is certainly launching with a bang -- beyond the excitement leading up to his first show (with its Donald Trump jokes and surprise Jimmy Fallon appearance), last night's episode featured a full musical performance by Kendrick Lamar. The rapper and a backing band did a medley of tracks from To Pimp a Butterfly (specifically "Wesley's Theory," "Momma," "King Kunta," and "u"). The performance is really special, more evocative of the beautiful visuals Lamar has been putting out behind the album than his infamously lukewarm live shows. The presence of the studio's cathedral-like dome certainly doesn't hurt. Check it out below. [via Pitchfork]
