Watch Kendrick Lamar‘s Explosive #Grammys Performance

By  | 

chain.0Even before Kendrick Lamar took the stage at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, the Compton rapper‘s performance was called “controversial” and “powerful.” And K-Dot proved why.

Clad in prison garb, walking in shackles, and backed by prison imagery, he launched into an emotionally-charged performance of “The Blacker the Berry” off his Grammy-winning album To Pimp a Butterfly. When the lights shut off, Kendrick and the other “inmates” shined with a glow-in-the-dark effect.

Next, with an enormous bonfire raging behind him, Kendrick transitioned into “Alright.” His acrobatic dancers performed as he rocked through a single that‘s been called a civil rights anthem for this generation.

Finally, with just one spotlight shining down on him, Kendrick debuted a brand new song about death and “modern-day slavery.” Spitting with a rapid-fire flow, K-Dot closed his set as a map of Africa appeared behind him with a single word written on it: “Compton.”
