Kendrick Lamar Performs ‘Swimming Pools’ on ‘Jimmy Fallon’

Beloved indie rapper Kendrick Lamar made his late-night debut on NBC’s ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ on Tuesday night (Oct. 2). Backed by the Roots, the Compton, Calif. rapper performed his cautionary ode, ‘Swimming Pools (Drank)’ for the TV audience.

Wearing a black hoodie, light-blue jeans and Timberland boots, Lamar told the in-studio crowd, “This is for everybody to understand me, I need you to recognize my plan B is to win your hearts before I win Grammy.” From there, K.Dot gave an intense performance of the sinister tune with Questlove providing the baritone vocals of ‘Drank’ on the hook.
