Kendrick Lamar hit SNL this weekend, and showed that, almost frighteningly, he’s still getting even better. His live act sounds more polished with every appearance he makes, and he simply killed his full band-backed renditions of “Swimming Pools (Drank)” and “Poetic Justice.” It makes us hope that his Governor’s Ball appearance  this June will be part of a larger tour in support of good kid, m.A.A.d city. 

And if that wasn’t enough Kendrick for you, the Compton emcee also appeared in Lonely Island’s hilarious “YOLO.”
