As one part of satirist Stephen Colbert’s career ends, another begins this September when he takes David Letterman’s place on the Late Show – and he’s bringing Kendrick Lamar along for the ride.
Josef Adalian of NY Magazine tweeted yesterday (August 10) that K.Dot would be Colbert’s first musical guest when the late night staple returns to TV on September 8; which would mean that he was there at the end and the beginning of two respective chapters of Colbert’s career. K.Dot was also the last musical guest on Colbert’s satirical news show The Colbert Report, which ended last year.
Will we be getting a song from To Pimp A Butterfly this time, or another unreleased track? Only time will tell.
