Tonight, Kendrick Lamar made his Saturday Night Live debut. His band repped TDE hard, and Kendrick looked comfortable and well-practiced. For a young, up-and-coming rapper, Kendrick already carries the confidence of a seasoned pro. Watch “Swimming Pools” and stay tuned for his “Poetic Justice” performance.

Will Landman was in the audience and tweeted, “@PigsAndPlans when Kendrick points to the audience at the end of his performance he’s pointing to Dr. Dre who was in the studio. #SNL..┬áJason Segal, Olivia Wilde, & others were in the building who we saw in the lobby and inside. Kendrick looked so happy.”
