Kendrick Lamar Wins Best Rap Album At The 65th Annual Grammy Awards

In A Sweet Home Video, Kendrick Lamar's Children Watch Him Win A Grammy

At the 65th Annual Grammy Awards, Kendrick Lamar added to his collection of Grammys by winning awards in three of the eight categories for which he was nominated.

Just before the televised broadcast of the Grammys’ main program, which began on Sunday at 8:00 p.m., two of the rapper’s wins were revealed during the Grammys Premiere Ceremony (February 5).

In order to win Best Rap Song, “The Heart Part 5” outperformed DJ Khaled, Jack Harlow, Future, and Gunna’s songs. The song also brought Kendrick his sixth victory in the Best Rap Performance category.

During the Grammys’ televised part, Cardi B gave Kendrick Lamar the Best Rap Album award, and Lamar praised “the culture” for letting him “grow” and produce his fifth studio album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.

“First and foremost, I wanna thank my family for giving me the courage and the vulnerability to share these stories and to share my truth with this album,” he started his acceptance speech. “That’s first and foremost. I wanna thank my fans for trusting me with these words.

“You know as artists, we are all entertainers, stupid. And we say things to provoke thoughts and feelings and emotions. So making this record was one of my toughest records to make; and it allowed me to do that and it allowed me to share other people’s experiences.”
