Must listen - Kendrick Lamar: Untitled

It's not often that lyrics website Rap Genius gets to deploy the phrase "Saxophone interlude" - but there it is, bold as day, in the middle of the write-up for Kendrick Lamar's new song, Untitled.

Premiered on The Colbert Report last night (where Lamar was the last-ever musical guest before Colbert departs to take over David Letterman's Late Show), the song is a sublime, jazz-inflected reflection on all the advice he's been given since becoming famous - buy property, chase women, abandon your core audience and get rich.

Watch below - and don't skip Colbert's interview, in which he quizzes the rapper on his stage pseudonym: "Why did you decide to name yourself after Anna Kendrick and Senator Lamar Alexander?"
