Kendrick Lamar Wins Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance at 2015 Grammy Awards
Last year, many were upset that Kendrick Lamar's 'good kid, m.A.A.d. city' album lost to Macklemore's 'The Heist' for Best Rap Album at the 2014 Grammy Awards. There's that, and the fact that he also lost the five other categories he was nominated for.
Things are different in 2015. Lamar won two pre-ceremony Grammys for 'i': Best Rap Song and Best Performance. The irony of this award is that 'good kid, m.A.A.d city' didn't win any Grammys despite being one of the most highly-regarded albums of the decade. 'i' is divisive, but its still earned Lamar the first two Grammys of his career. Better than nothing, right?
'i' peaked at No. 39 on the Billboard Hot 100.
