It’s been a huge day for Kendrick Lamar. To start it off, he performed on a double-decker bus outside of the Lakers game last night and caused a mob that had to be shut down by authorities. Then, his major label debut album, good kid, m.A.A.d city, hit retailers. After garnering wide praise by fans and critics alike all day, Kendrick went to where it all started—his hometown of Compton—to sign copies of his LP at the local Best Buy. But before heading down there, he stopped by Conan to bless the stage with his single, “Swimming Pools (Drank),” to air later on in the night for television audiences. Now, we’ve received the footage of the performance. Press play up top to check it out, and of course, get your copy of good kid, m.A.A.d city now over at iTunes or Target via Top Dawg Entertainment/Aftermath/Interscope Records.
