Compton native, Kendrick Lamar is up for 11 Grammy Awards, which is one shy of the record set by Michael Jackson in 1984, and he will surely take a few of them–at the least–home. K. Dot set the world on fire with his “To Pimp a Butterfly” album, the deeply introspective, personal, and socially arousing follow-up to his autobiographical debut, “good kid, m.A.A.d. city”, which was nominated for several Grammys in 2014.
The artist behind the street anthem, “Alright,” soundtrack a new short film by the GRAMMYs, which celebrates the impact Kendrick has had on Compton–and the world–with the meticulous attention he pays to every word of his lyrics. Compton residents recite the song acappella before being joined by Kendrick himself, who turns up with a modest crowd of people who have just “witnessed greatness.”
