The 49-year-old Not Afraid rapper had shown interest in kneeling during his performance, but had been advised against it.

He sang a sample of ‘Forgot About Dre’ as well as ‘Lose Yourself’ in his short medley.

At one point, he knelt in the stance that has become synonymous with the Black Lives Matter campaign.
