Kendrick Lamar Takes Home 5 Grammys

Kendrick Lamar rocked the Grammys last night with his performance that was definitely one to  to remember. He hit the stage making a huge political and controversial statement. Walking out in chains, he started with "The Blacker The Berry," as men were locked in jail cells. 

He transitioned and the chains were broken as he and his dancers were liberated to "Alright." Lamar proclaimed "I'm African-American, I'm African. I'm black as the moon, heritage of a small village. My hair is nappy, my d--k is big, my nose is round and wide, you hate me don’t you?” 
Lamar also shared a new verse about the horrific death of Trayvon Martin. “On February 26th, I lost my life, too. Sent us back 400 years. This is modern day slavery,” he raps. 
After getting a total 11 nominations he took home 5 awards for best rap album, rap performance, rap song, rap/sung collaboration and music video. Congrats Kendrick.
