Kendrick Lamar Wins Big At The 2017 VMAs

The 2017 MTV Video Music Awards finally happened yesterday at The Forum in Inglewood, California with Katy Perry as the host of the show. Kendrick Lamar who had the spotlight with the highest number of nominations also continued to shine at the event with some major wins. He won six awards including Best Hip Hop and Video Of The Year for “HUMBLE” out of the eight nominations he had.

Lamar also dominated at the VMAs with a powerful and politically-charged performance with a medley of his tracks “DNA” and “HUMBLE”. Throughout the show, the political focus remained as many of speakers talked about speaking out against hate and violence.
