So who does Stephen Colbert pick to be the first musical guest on his The Late Show With Stephen Colbert when it premiers? Who is Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar

Reports The Wrap:

Kendrick Lamar will be the first musical guest on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” according to the incoming late-night host. Lamar had previously appeared on Stephen Colbert’s prior show, “The Colbert Report” on Comedy Central.

“My last musical guest [on “The Colbert Report”] was Kendrick Lamar, and I would love for him to be my first musical guest. In fact he will be my first musical guest,” Colbert said Monday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills.

Smart man.

Kendrick Lamar’s latest album, To Pimp A Butterfly, is critically acclaimed while he is also found on Dr. Dre’s just released Compton: The Album.

Colbert’s Late Show will premiere on September 8.
