The 2016 BET Awards are officially underway, and boy, do Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar know how to set things off in an adrenaline-fueled fashion.

Taking the stage front and center at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Queen Bey and King Kendrick gave an outstanding performance of “Freedom” off LEMONADE, with black fists throughout the packed arena proudly lifted in the air, concluded with a standing ovation.

Peep a visibly happy Samuel L. Jackson (recipient of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award) at the end.
