Kendrick Lamar Performing On ‘The Tonight Show’ This Week

Kendrick Lamar has had the best year of his career last year with a No. 1 album and topping things off with 11 Grammy nominations.

Seems the Compton emcee is kicking off the new year with a performance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on January 7.

Kendrick Lamar will not only perform, but also sit down for his first major interview since getting a record number for Grammy nods, including for Best Rap Album and Album of the Year for his landmark project “To Pimp a Butterfly.”

“I want all of them,” he told the New York Times. “Because it’s not only a statement for myself, but it’s a statement for the culture. They’re all important, because of the foundation the forefathers laid before me. Nas didn’t get a chance to be in that position. Pac. So to be acknowledged and to actually win, it’s for all of them.”

This will be Kendrick Lamar’s first appearance on “The Tonight Show” and will be his first live TV performance since the start of the year.
