Kendrick Lamar is hopeful about the Grammy Awards this year. The hip hop artist has seven Grammy nominations, including Best New Artist, Album of the Year, and Best Rap Song.
Lamar took a moment to discuss who he is and what is important to him. He told The Hollywood Reporter, “I’m most comfortable when I’m plain Jane in my Nike Cortez and my white tees. That’s who I am and the era I came from. I always have to remind myself of that. I thought I wanted jewelry and cars, but as soon as I got a taste, I realized it wasn’t fulfillment. A thrill is being as creative as possible and supporting the people I love.”
It was an impressive year for Lamar, and the album Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City has received much praise. According to Rolling Stone, Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City is a contender for album of the year. The album featured three top 40 hits, including “Swimming Pools(Drank)" and “Poetic Justice.”
The 56th Annual Grammy Awards will take place on Jan. 26 in Los Angeles.
