Celebrating his wins at the 2018 Grammy Awards, Kendrick Lamar took the stage to offer a riveting performance of some of the biggest songs off his lauded DAMN. album.

Asserting his musical dominance, the “Humble” rapper kicked off his performance with a military homage to “XXX.” Transitioning into “LUST,” U2‘s Bono provides an intro for the song as Kendrick emerges with even more energy for “DNA.” Following an interjection from Dave Chappelle who comments on the state of racism in America with a joke, a taiko drummer assists K. Dot with his verse from Rich The Kid’s “New Freezer.” With another interjection from Chappelle, Kenny ends his performance with “King’s Dead” from the Black Panther soundtrack.

Watch Kendrick Lamar’s riveting performance below and stay tuned for all of our coverage from the 2018 Grammy Awards.
