Kendrick Lamar performs new song on 'Colbert Report'

On Tuesday night, Kendrick Lamar became the last musical guest to ever perform on The Colbert Report. 

The show will bow out on Thursday, Dec. 18, and Colbert took the time to chat a bit with Lamar about Lamar’s preference to be called a writer rather than a rapper, and joked about why Lamar would name himself after “Anna Kendrick and Senator Lamar Alexander.”  Take a look at the video of Lamar’s performance below, in which Lamar premiered his new untitled track, which has hints of spoken word poetry.
