Last week, Kendrick Lamar was announced as the final musical guest of The Colbert Report. The Compton rapper opted to perform something new as opposed to his celebrated “i” track and backed by Bilal Oliver, Anna Wise on vocals & the combo of Terrace Martin & Thundercat on saxophone and bass respectively.

Opting for far more worldly views than the singular subject matter of self-love on “i,” Lamar’s untitled track takes aim at sociopolitical faults, the wants of blacks, Hispanics, Indians and whites in regards to what freedom means to them. Land. Money. Sex. Those are the answers Dot gets before determining simply living is a freedom into itself.

There’s some jazz, some Yeezus and a jam session buried underneath Lamar’s shouts of “Tell ’em we don’t die, we multiply.” Watch Kendrick Lamar on The Colbert Report below.
