Kendrick Lamar Plans On Taking Home The Grammy
Kendrick Lamar is preparing for an amazing 2016. Kendrick is nominated for not one, not two but 11 Grammy awards for the upcoming 2016 show. He is one Grammy short of tying with Michael Jackson's 12 nominations for Thriller in 1984.
"I'm still soaking that all in," Lamar tells the The New York Times during a recent interview.“Michael will forever be the greatest. I’m glad it was at 11. I would never want to even think about putting myself on the same level as Michael, simply because I haven’t put in the work that he did. It couldn’t be a better number.”
"Ultimately, for the hip-hop community, I would love for us to win them all," he says. "Because we deserve that. Period."
"I want all of them. Because it's not only a statement for myself, but it's a statement for the culture. They're all important, because of the foundation the forefathers laid before me. Nas didn't get a chance to be in that position...So to be acknowledged and to actually win, it's for all of them."
The Grammy's airs February 15, 2016 at 8/7c on CBS. We're rooting for you Kendrick!
