Kendrick Lamar GRAMMY

Kendrick Lamar’s Radical GRAMMY Performance

As if snagging five Grammies wasn’t enough, Kendrick Lamar also had to tear down the house that snubbed him two years prior. Returning with a vengeance, Kendrick delivered a three-part performance that went from prison-house (“The Blacker the Berry”) to tribal bonfire (“Alright”) to a lights-out closeup shot and new track. It’s also a stunningly original interpretation, rather than trying to replicate the studio versions of his tracks. The win is a rightfully-deserved nod of recognition for the massive cultural impact Kendrick’s To Pimp A Butterfly has had, especially “Alright,” the de facto anthem of Black Lives Matter. Kendrick’s been bringing it on all fronts with his amazing performances on late night, and we can expect them to only get more cinematic and powerful in the future.

In other news, let’s hope fellow TDE member Jay Rock recovers from his brutal motorcycle accident last night.
