On Sunday night during the 2017 MTV VMAs, Kendrick Lamar kicked off the show with a fiery performance of his hit DAMN. singles, “DNA.” and “HUMBLE.” Kicking off with “DNA.,” Lamar made his way on stage donning a red bubble jacket with a matching du-rag while trying to dodge an army of ninjas. After the stunt, Kung Fu Kenny seamlessly transitioned into “HUMBLE.,” which is where things got literally lit as a samurai dressed in white helped to light the stage on fire.
Check out Lamar’s performance above. Lamar leads this year’s pack of nominees with eight nods. Recently, Kendrick Lamar officially announced his partnership with Nike.
