Kendrick Lamar stunned the world with his controversial Black Lives Matter-inspired performance at the 2016 Grammys last night.
Standing at the microphone in chains with a few cellmates and a prison background behind him, Kendrick opened his performance with his To Pimp A Butterfly single “The Blacker The Berry.”
From there, Kendrick and the rest of the guys break free of their shackles and dance in front of a bonfire with neon colors everywhere as he performed “Alright.”
Kendrick ended his set with a fury of verses and the word Compton over an image of Africa. It was easily the BEST performance of the night.
Lamar received 5 Grammy wins for Best Rap Performance, Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, Best Rap Song, Best Rap Album, and Best Music Video.
