The 2015 BET Awards went down in Los Angeles Sunday night. And who better to kick off the gala than the rapper behind the year’s best album thus far. Kendrick Lamar showcased his latest opus, To Pimp a Butterfly, with a scorching hot performance of “Alright”, one which saw him rap atop a gratified police car (perhaps the same one used by Ice Cube the night prior?). The performance also featured a giant American flag, a troupe of backing dances, and one hell of a saxophonist. Watch the replay below.
