Kendrick Lamar Radio

Kendrick Lamar is going "live from New York" this weekend. The rapper will perform as the musical guest on Saturday's installment of "Saturday Night Live." 

This marks K-Dot's second time on the bill as the musical guest. He first appeared on the show last year, when he showed off his hits "Poetic Justice" and "Swimming Pools" from his album good kid, m.A.A.d city. He also surprised "SNL" viewers earlier this year when he performed alongside Imagine Dragons

With Kendrick handling the musical portion of the show, actor Woody Harrelson will take on hosting duties.  

Fingers crossed Kendrick sings "Shake It Off" again!

ORRRR even better ... Taylor Swift surprises everyone and joins him for a performance of "Backseat Freestyle."
