Kendrick Lamar’s Politically Charged Performance of “The Blacker the Berry”:Reel Grammy Highlights

In case you missed last night’s Grammys Award, we’ve got you covered.

One of the biggest winners last night undoubtedly was Kendrick Lamar. Lamar had an incredible 11 nominations, 1 nomination fewer than the record of 12 nominations which was set by Michael Jackson in 1984. Although Lamar didn’t win for the bigger categories in which he was nominated for, he did win best rap album for “To Pimp a Butterfly.” His other awards include: best rap performance, best rap song, rap/sun collaboration, best music video (an honor he shared with Taylor Swift).

The Weeknd walked into the ceremony with 7 nominations and walked out of the ceremony with two wins, one for R&B Performance for “Earned It” from the 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack as well as best urban contemporary album for “Beauty Behind the Madness.”

Perhaps the most notable aspect of the Grammys this year were all of the tributes that were paid this year. With the passing of David Bowie, Glenn Frey and Maurice White, artists like Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder and Pentatonix, and members of the Eagles performed touching tributes to those who have passed.

Ah, but tributes aren’t always meant for the deceased, as Megan Trainor, John Legend, Tyrese, Demi Lovato and Luke Bryan performed a medley of Lionel Richie’s music to pay him a tribute, as he is the MusiCares Person of the Year.

Of all the performances, perhaps the one that stood out the most was Kendrick Lamar’s performance of “The Blacker the Berry” and “Alright.” It makes you wonder if he was channeling his inner Beyonce by sparking a politically charged rendition of “The Blacker the Berry” where his hands were in chains and the backup performers were in prison cells.

Also, speaking of incredible performances, the Broadway cast of “Hamilton” performed the opening number for their play, which definitely gave the award ceremony a boost of espresso amid the slow ballads that was being performed until that point.

So, what was your favorite moment of the 2016 Grammys?

  33. Unfortunately, the sad truth is that the first Broadway play performed in the Rap genre, created by black people, was about the multi- century celebrated Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton, rather than the multi- century Unsung Founding Father, Benjamin Banneker.

    Had it been about Benjamin Banneker, perhaps the attending audience would have been more ethnically diverse, and black peoe would not appear so lost.

    We would love for Kendrick Lamar to give it a shot, with John Singleton directing.
