Peep This: Kendrick Lamar Performs “Alright” at 2015 BET Awards

kendrick-lamar-bet-2015

Kendrick Lamar is having a hell of a year, jettisoned by his To Pimp a Butterfly record that won over critics, fans and earned him the Best Hip-Hop Male award from last night’s BET Awards in LA’s Microsoft Theater. Kendrick opened the ceremony with a thrilling performance of “Alright,” lighting up the stage, releasing his artillery flows from atop TDE-graffiti embossed cop cars and tattered American flags flying in the backdrop (statement or nah?) Midway through the performance, his back-up dancers surrounded him cypher-style as he fired off improvised verses in his performance, garnering standing ovations from notables including BET boss Debra Lee.
