Tonight the BRIT Awards took over London’s O2 Arena, honoring the best artists in the region. Taking to the stage for a surprise performance was Kendrick Lamar and special guest Rich The Kid. Lamar kicked his set off with 2017’s DAMN. track “FEEL.” followed by a verse from his new song “New Freezer” with Rich The Kid. Lamar performed on top of a Lamborghini encased in glass while Rich The Kid was seen smashing it with a bat. Behind the two MCs, the screen read “This is another satire by Kendrick Lamar,” a reference to a similar message that appeared at the GRAMMYs.
Watch the fiery performance above. Lamar also ended up winning the BRIT’s International Male Solo Artist Award, beating out Drake and Childish Gambino, among others. In related news, Kendrick Lamar and SZA are being sued over “All The Stars” video.
