Kendrick Lamar Will Be Stephen Colbert’s First Musical Guest on ‘The Late Show’

The Compton rapper was also the final artist to play 'The Colbert Report'

Stephen Colbert officially takes The Late Show stage on September 8, where he’ll welcome Kendrick Lamar as his first musical guest, Variety reports. The scheduled appearance seems extra-appropriate (not to mention full circle), as Lamar was the final musical guest on the now-defunct Colbert Report, where he debuted an untitled song that he reportedly wrote the day before. Re-watch that performance here.
