Kendrick Lamar On The Importance Of The Grammys: "It's A Statement For The Culture"
The Grammy's may be two months away, but make no mistake about it: the award ceremony is on the mind of Kendrick Lamar.
Kendrick Lamar was explicit about the value of victory in a recent interview with The New York Times. "The Grammys have taste," he declared. "They've had taste for a long time. I'm just more excited that they recognize the time and effort put into the project."
"Ultimately, for the hip-hop community, I would love for us to win them all," the MC told The Times. (He is nominated for 11 awards.) "Because we deserve that. Period... it's not only a statement for myself, but it's a statement for the culture. They're all important, because of the foundation the forefathers laid before me. Nas didn't get a chance to be in that position. Pac. So to be acknowledged and to actually win, it's for all of them."

Have the Grammy's ever got it "right" when it comes to the impact of music within the hip-hop community?

Should the hip-hop community care about the Grammys?
