Kendrick Lamar, ‘SNL': Watch Performances of ‘Swimming Pools’ and ‘Poetic Justice’

Kendrick Lamar hit the stage at Saturday Night Live over the weekend and turned in amazing performances of “Swimming Pools (Drank)” and the Janet Jackson-inspired “Poetic Justice,” respectively.

And while ordinarily that would be enough to satisfy the K.Dot fan in all of us, the Compton-bred MC joined Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine — who handled hosting duties — as well as Andy Samberg and the Lonely Island for an SNL digital short. It’s a hilarious take on Drake‘s “YOLO” catchphrase.

Gonna go out on a limb here and say that the “YOLO” digital short might be one of the best yet and that the song is strong enough to stand on its own. Score another one for comedy rap.
