Kendrick Lamar’s Grammy snub reaction

It’s well deserved; he did what he did, man. He went out there and hustled and grinded. Everything happens for a reason; the universe comes back around, that’s how it go.

Nicely said, Kendrick.

He continues (as I continue to agree…) to XXL:

“I definitely feel like they should always have more of the culture up in there, for sure, because we definitely stand out just like any other genre,” Kendrick said when asked if he thought the Grammys undervalued hip-hop. “We part of the world. We part of the movement. So I think any awards, including the Grammys, should always push for more hip-hop because it’s music as a whole, it’s not just splitting different regions. Everything moves as far as sound and vibrations, and that’s how it goes. And we are a part of that.”

So, there’s all that.

Getting back to the music, I’ve been listening to this “Radioactive” remix since Sunday. Kendrick’s energy is too intense and infectious. Fortunately, I avoided hearing the original a ton so it feels all the way fresh for me. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, re-watch the Grammy performance and listen to the studio version here.
