Kendrick Lamar responds to Grammys Snub

Kendrick Lamar responds to Grammys snubKendrick Lamar was nominated for seven awards at this year’s Grammy Awards and somehow walked away with none.

Yet the “good kid, m.A.A.d. city” rapper is taking the snub in stride – even though one of his peers, Macklemore, had a harder time doing so.

Macklemore, along with his collaborator, Ryan Lewis, faced off against Lamar for the major rap awards and the best new artist honor. By the end of the ceremony, Macklemore had taken them all, including the best rap album title. That Grammy win in and of itself sparked a heated debate, with several – including Macklemore himself – saying Lamar had been robbed of a prize that was rightly his.

But in Lamar’s eyes, Macklemore deserved the award just as much.

“It’s well-deserved,” he told XXL magazine. “He did what he did, man, he went out there and hustled and grinded. Everything happens for a reason; the universe comes back around, that’s how it go.”

At least Lamar was a clear winner when it came to the performances at the Grammy Awards – his set with Imagine Dragons, a mashup of “Radioactive” and “m.A.A.d. City,” is thought to be one of the best of the night

Best Rock Grammy Performance

One of the best performances done by a Rock group in years.  Imagine Dragon & Kendrick Lamar storm the stage for their remake of Mad City. 

Rocking the stage in All white they went back and forth with like styles of Beats and Drums from the actual Song. 

Then towards The end they ended the song off with a blast of Red Powder meaning Mad City..  Yes we loved that performance..

Kendrick Lamar’s Verse — You be The Judge

 

I heard the barbershops be in great debates all the time
Bout who’s the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas
Eminem, Andre 3000, the rest of y’all
New niggas just new niggas, don’t get involved
I’m usually homeboys with the same niggas I’m rhymin’ wit
But this is hip hop and them niggas should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale
Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake
Big Sean, Jay Electron’, Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you niggas
Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas
They dont wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you niggas
What is competition? I’m tryna raise the bar high
Who tryna jump and get it? You better off tryna skydive
Out the exit window of 5 G5’s with 5 grand
With your granddad as the pilot he drunk as fuck tryna land
With the hand full of arthritis and popping prosthetic leg
Bumpin Pac in the cockpit so the shit that pops in his head
Is an option of violence, someone heard the stewardess said
That your parachute is a latex condom hooked to a dread

 

 

Diddy’s REVOLT TV had a quick, smart take on the verse:
