Watch Kendrick Lamar On Conan

This is Kendrick Lamar’s coronation week, with his simply staggering new album Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City on a fast train into the public consciousness. And last night — the night after the album hit online retailers — Kendrick appeared as the musical guest on Conan, performing the single “Swimming Pools (Drank).” He had a minimal setup, with just a DJ behind him, no band or hypeman. But that worked just fine, since it’s pretty incredible to watch him dizzily reeling off those blurry verses. Watch it below.

Good Kid, m.A.A.d. City is out now on TDE/Interscope.
