Kendrick Lamar Kicks Off 2017 VMAs With a Fiery Performance of 'DNA' & 'Humble'

To kick off the 2017 VMA Awards, Kendrick Lamar delivered an explosive performance of "DNA" and "Humble."

Donning a red bubble jacket with a matching du-rag, Lamar began his energetic set with gusto. As he showcased his rapid-fire flow, an army of ninjas clad in black appeared onstage. Their arsenal of moves didn't phase Kung Fu Kenny, as he then seamlessly segued to "Humble."

His torrid set instantly got hotter once a samurai dressed in white began swinging his fiery sword back and forth. Check out his smoking set.
