Published Jun 28, 2015The BET Awards were on tonight (June 28), and Compton rap genius Kendrick Lamar won the award for Best Male Hip Hop Artist. He also performed his To Pimp a Butterfly track "Alright," and this live rendition can be seen now.
The staging was lavish, as Lamar rapped while standing atop a police car while flanked by a troupe of backup dancers and a massive, billowing American flag. He eventually came out to the front of the stage, spitting fire over the jazzy backing track until the arrangement was transformed during an ominous final passage.
Check out the performance below.
