Tonight (January 28th) is the night of the Grammys and TDE‘s Kendrick Lamar and having a hell of a night. Nominated for Best Rap Album of The Year for DAMN, Lamar went up against competitors such as Jay-Z & 4:44, Migos & CULTURE, Rapsody & Laila’s Wisdom, and Tyler The Creator & Flower Boy. Though, the competition was tough he would take home the award of Best Rap Album of The Year and take to the stage to give his acceptance speech.
During his acceptance speech Lamar would give a huge shout out on the Grammys platform to Sacramento artist, Mozzy. “Like my guy Mozzy say, you know, God up top all the time, you know,” Lamar would state referencing Mozzy’s 1 Up Top Ahk phrase. He would continue by saying, “Hip-Hop is what got me on the stage, this is what got me to tour around the world. Most important it showed me what a true artist is. It’s really about expressing yourself and putting that paint on the canvas for the world to evolve for the next generation and the next.”
