Kendrick Lamar is showing off his comedic side. In his return to "Saturday Night Live," K-Dot played himself in a fake promotion for a duets album called Young Tarts and Old Farts and rapped alongside Taran Killam's Barry Manilow.
The skit was a nod to Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett's Cheek to Cheek album of duets. Also on the list of fake duets were Ariana Grande and Lionel Richie, and Elton John and Blue Ivy Carter -- the daughter of Jay Z and Beyoncé.
As musical guest, Kendrick Lamar gave a high energy performance of his latest single "i." He performed wearing black eye contacts and a hairstyle that was an apparent tribute to the late Ol' Dirty Bastard, who passed away ten years ago.
For his second set, Kendrick shared the stage with his Top Dawg Entertainment labelmate Jay Rock and singer Chantal Kreviazuk. The three performed Jay's new single "Pay For It," which was released late last month.
