Written by DeRochelle Coleman on January 29, 2018
In 2016, rapper Kendrick Lamar electrified the audience and set Twitter on fire with a powerful, political performance at the Grammys.
Lamar’s most recent album, “DAMN.” has been another critical and commercial success.
His show-opening performance at Sunday’s Grammy Awards earned him a standing ovation from the audience at Madison Square Garden and plenty of praise on social media.
The rapper had a good night, winning five awards including best rap album and best music video for his song “Humble.”
Last August, Lamar talked to Rolling Stone about why, despite being incredibly political in his music, he doesn’t often speak about President Donald Trump.
“We already know what it is,” he said. “Are we gonna keep talking about it or are we gonna take action? You just get to a point where you’re tired of talking about it.”
