Kendrick Lamar isn’t the kind of artist you can catch live on any given week. But if you haven’t see him live, you can watch him conveniently at home on television this weekend. K.Dot will perform songs from his Grammy-nominated album, To Pimp a Butterfly, on PBS’ popular concert series, Austin City Limits.

The Texas-based concert series has upped the ante and liberated three additional visuals of the Top Dawg Entertainment franchise player moving the crowd. Leading off with his country-dipped single, “i,” the selection is quite appropriate for the venue and surrounding environment. The Compton rhymer isn’t alone in his exuberance either with the crowd reciting lines in unison and rocking out with the beloved rap star.

The song “i” may give the people a jolt, but “Wesley’s Theory” is Lamar’s assuming the role of supreme soloist, with the crowd wrapped around his finger and clinging to his every word. The third song, “Hood Politics,” sees the 28-year-old rapper summoning the backing band’s thumping drums for a more subdued performance in comparison to the other tunes.

Kendrick Lamar’s full performance can be seen on Austin City Limits, which is set to air on Jan. 9 on PBS at 9PM ET. Watch “i” above, and “Wesley’s Theory” and “Hood Politics” below.
