Watch Kendrick Lamar Blaze MTV’s Video Music Awards

Kendrick Lamar‘s award show performance bar has, once again, been raised another level. Last night at the VMA’s, Kung Fu Kenny mashed up the creative arts and martial arts for the show’s opening performance. Ninjas and wall-of-fire climbing warriors ornamented the stage where the fiery lyrics of “DNA.” and “HUMBLE.” intensified the set’s blaze. Both tracks are from the Compton-hailing rapper’s DAMN. project which charted to number 1 again recently after reaching double platinum status in July.

Kendrick was nominated for Artist of the Year and “HUMBLE.” was up for eight other Video Music Awards. After kicking the show off with literal flames, K Dot took home Video of the Year, Best Hip Hop Video, Best Direction, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects awards. Watch Kendrick Lamar’s 2017 VMA performance above, and revisit the multi-award winning “HUMBLE.” visual here.
