Watch Kendrick Lamar’s Heroic Performance Of “Alright” At The 2015 BET Awards

Last night, many of the entertainment world’s biggest names gathered under the Staples Center roof in LA for the 2015 BET Awards. But a night that would see some high-powered performances from A-listers far and wide had to get started on the good foot. And so, Kendrick Lamar was called upon to commence the awards show, doing so from the top of a cop car, belting out the triumphant preamble to his To Pimp A Butterfly turn-up anthem “Alright,” which was perhaps the only way to cap off such an equally trying and blessed week in the the good ole US of A. Once again, K Dot comes through and embodies the frustrations of a nation, providing us with all of the energy and even a new verse for his mid-album heater to boot. Heroic barely describes how powerful a moment the man provided for those in attendance and watching along at home, but is he not the rap-game Superman, stomping on the hood of a bombed-out cruiser as he proclaims that “we gon’ be alright”? And are we not inclined to believe him? Watch as Kendrick Lamar delivers a powerful performance of “Alright” live at the 2015 BET Awards and check back later today for more from the evening’s proceedings.
