VMAs 2017: Kendrick Lamar’s Performance Was Lit — Literally (Video)

Like, really on fire

As if it wasn’t already evident enough, Kendrick Lamar just proved — again — that he can set the stage on fire with his performances. Like, really on fire.

The 30-year-old rapper came out on stage in a white T-shirt and an orange jumpsuit that was strangely familiar to a prison jumpsuit and opened Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards with an impassioned performance of “DNA.”

When he made his way to the main stage, he was greeted by a ninja (?) in flames. Like, this performer was literally on fire — flames and everything. In the background, stood a few black belt karate performers.

K. Dot then transitioned to his hit single “Humble,” and that’s when the martial arts performers began climbing a fence that was on fire. Yup, still real fire.

Lamar’s VMA performance was so lit that it broke the internet. Fans deemed the show over right after the rapper’s set.

Lamar’s act was tough to follow, so people didn’t really know how to react when Ed Sheeran took the stage right after.
