Kendrick Lamar Brings 'Swimming Pools (Drank)' to 'SNL'

Rapper performs two 'Good Kid' tracks and offers financial advice

By |

Kendrick Lamar hit Saturday Night Live last night with a live band and two tracks from Good Kid, m.A.A.d City. For the platinum-certified "Swimming Pools (Drank)," the L.A. rapper appeared in a stage fittingly flooded with an aqueous blue light, though he was bundled up tight against New York's wintery chill. Warmer lighting and short sleeves accompanied "Poetic Justice." Lamar also excercised his comedy chops in a Digital Short alongside host Adam Levine and the Lonely Island crew, offering financial advice in "YOLO," an ode to safety and prudence.
