Kendrick Lamar Will Be First Musical Guest on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert"

The show premieres on September 8.

Stephen Colberthas tapped Kendrick Lamar to be the first musical guest when he takes over "The Late Show" this fall. During a speech for the Television Critics Association, Colbert said that it was only appropriate to have him as the first guest since he helped send off "The Colbert Report" last year with a performance of "Untitled" (a song that has still not been released officially).  When the new "Late Show" debuts in the fall, it's possible he could be joined by Colbert's in-house band led by the legendary Jon Batiste. Check out Kendrick's powerful performance of "Untitled" above while we wait for "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" on September 8.
