Jay Rock Opens 2018 BET Awards With Performance of “Win”
Jay Rock kicked off the 2018 BET Awards in dramatic fashion tonight (June 24) with a horn-heavy performance of his song "Win."
The song was an apt choice for a night full of winning by some of hip-hop's greatest. Jay Rock took the stage as the evening's host, Jamie Foxx, was being introduced to the audience. Wearing his classic pared-down style, Jay Rock performed in a simple white T-shirt and plaid flannel. Jamie Foxx spent parts of the performance dapping up some familiar faces in the front row like Childish Gambino and DJ Khaled (with Asahd in tow), but joined Jay Rock on stage as well.
The TDE star has burst back into the limelight in a major way over the last few months and just last week shared his new album, Redemption, which features the likes of Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Future, Jeremih and SZA. "Win," which features Kendrick, also features a creative video of the two going duck hunting, among other things. The track was previously dropped during the rollout of Redemption, which also saw the release of a mini documentary chronicling the evolution of TDE over time.
