Kendrick Lamar...Hip Hop's New Leader

Wow doesn't really do justice to the ferocity of Kendrick Lamar's performance last night on The Grammys. Today I've heard numerous people who have no business talking about Hip Hop throwing all sorts of compliments K Dot's way. It feels like his buzz gotten to the point that it's "cool" to like Kendrick Lamar, which speaks to his meteoric rise. He's the first rapper since Eminem whose talent has allowed him to stay true to rapping because people aren't put off by his at times abrasive lyrics. In case you missed it, check out the awe-inspiring performance below...

The best part about the performance is that the folks at KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records had the Radioactive Remix up on iTunes before the performance was over. I can't tell you how many times a great song either leaks or the stream is released weeks in advance of consumers being able to purchase it. What a great surprise to be able to purchase it right after seeing the performance.

Even more dap is in order for Macklemore who admittedly thought Kendrick was robbed of album of the year. His performance was inspiring in it's own right, but it's refreshing to hear that he understood how historically good Kendrick's debut album was. Just a great, feel good night in general, but I was extremely proud of how Hip Hop represented themselves last night...#Grammys
