Yesterday, Kendrick Lamar stopped by SNL to perform a few hits from his fifth studio album, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, including “Rich Spirit,” “N95” and “Father Time.”
Set in a minimal square room with a light blue spotlight and a white oscillating floor fan, Lamar opened the performance with the calm “Rich Spirit.” What first appears to be a normal silhouette of Lamar due to the spotlight quickly turns into a dancing visual as Lamar remains still while rapping. When Lamar transitions to “N95” the atmosphere matches the energetic track with an array of frenzied lighting effects.
Lamar then transformed the space into a dimly lit bedroom for “Father Time.” But to bring the song fully to life, the Compton-born rapper brought out Sampha. As the two perform the emotion-laden track, the walls slowly creep in making the room smaller.
Check out the performance in the videos above.
