Kendrick Lamar is just weeks away from releasing his hotly anticipated debut album Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City (out October 22nd), and the rising Compton MC heightened anticipation last night when he made his TV debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Backed by the Roots, Lamar gave a cool and collected – but powerful – performance of album cut "Swimming Pool (Drank)," a track that delves into the destructiveness of drinking. It was a fitting debut, and as Lamar rhymed before kicking into the song, "This is for everybody to understand me. I need you to recognize my plan, B, is to win your hearts before I win a Grammy."
