Kendrick Lamar was nominated for seven Grammy Awards this year for work stemming from his critically acclaimed album DAMN., which HipHopDX also named Rap Album of the Year as part of our annual Year-End Awards.
During the ceremony for The 60th Annual Grammy Awards, which was held on Sunday (January 28) at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, the Compton Hip Hop luminary not only opened the event with a chilling medley featuring U2 and Dave Chappelle but he also took home multiple awards.
Before the night was over, K. Dot walked away with trophies for Best Rap/Sung Performance for “LOYALTY.” featuring Rihanna, Best Rap Performance for “HUMBLE.,” Best Rap Song for “HUMBLE.,” Best Video for, once again, “HUMBLE.” and Best Rap Album for, of course, DAMN.
The celebrated DAMN. project was certified double-platinum last July, just a few months after its initial April 2017 release.
