Kendrick Lamar SNL Pay For It


Kendrick Lamar sang the Jay Rock song “Pay For It” on this week’s “SNL.” He was accompanied by Rock and Chantal, who also played piano (video below). Lamar sang “i” during his first performance earlier in the show.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Lamar has been working on a new album, which is expected to be released in early 2015, with a slew of top producers, including Dr. Dre, Pharrell, Rahki, Thundercat, and Soundwave.

Lamar has been the musical guest on “SNL” twice now. He made his debut on “Saturday Night Live” in 2013 during which he sang “Swimming Pools (Drank).” A little more than a year ago, Lamar caused controversy a little more than a year ago when, on the song “Control,” he sang that he was “The King of New York,” and challenged Drake, A$AP Rocky, and other rappers to elevate their game or lose their fans to him.
