That's a Rap #Grammys

It’s a wrap! The 2016 Grammy’s are in the books.

And the performances from Monday night will never be forgotten. From beginning to end, you couldn’t help but to keep your eyes glued to the TV! Performances from Taylor Swift, The Weekend, Kendrick Lamar, Justin Bieber, Pitbull, and more.

Each and every artist showed off and did their thing last night. But there were also some issues, mainly RiRi canceled her performance at the last minute and Adele struggled with technical difficulties while she performed “All I Ask.” 

Many people were not pleased with that and started to rant about it all over social media

                                                                                    There’s always next year, ladies!
The performance that everyone went wild over was Kendrick Lamar’s. He delivered the performance of the night without a doubt. The artist started off by walking out as part of a chain gang to perform “The Blacker The Berry” with his ‘prisoners’ locked inside jail cells.  The he transitioned to "Alright" in front of a huge bonfire with numerous Africanesque dancers in the background.  He then ended his performance with the word Compton over an image of Africa. 

Kendrick has definitely made Grammy history with this performance.  Both of his songs come from his sophomore album To Pimp A Butterfly and they speak directly to African-Americans and the modern day issues they face in America.
To Pimp A Butterfly received seven Grammy nominations this year and Lamar took home four awards before the show even began. Later, he picked up another award for Best Rap Album. 
Congrats to you, Kendrick!
