Will the Grammys finally make it up to Kendrick Lamar?



LOS ANGELES — It was two years ago, but for many hip-hop fans, it still stings.

That’s when Kendrick Lamar, the brilliant lyricist behind the good kid, m.A.A.d city, one of the most ambitious rap albums in years, lost the Grammy for Best Rap Album to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, the artists behind ..“Thrift Shop.”

A black artist with a deeply moving coming-of-age story — critics did not shy away from the word ”masterpiece” — lost to a white artist with an album that yes, received mostly warm reviews, but would have found itself just as comfortable in the Pop category.
