CLAP FOR HIM: Kendrick Lamar Leads Grammy Awards With 11 Nominations 

Kendrick Lamar, To Pimp A Butterfly dropped earlier this year in March 2015. The album received rave reviews, so I’m not shocked at the 11 Grammy Noms! When you have talent and put out great music you should be recognized for your work! The 58th annual Grammy Awards will be held on February 15, 2016 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

    I’m sure many of you will look at the list and ask “where’s Future” and my thought is maybe his team didn’t submit his music to be considered for a Grammy. Or maybe Future just isn’t Grammy Material. Just because an artist is buzzing doesn’t necessarily make there projects Grammy Worthy.
