In the grand scheme of things, for the culture, the Grammy’s do not have that much weight when it comes to honoring Hip Hop & R&B music.  It is no doubt a prestige honor to win a Grammy in an urban category, but a great like Nas has never won a rap Grammy, so that right there tells you they will not necessarily define an artist from urban music.  Kendrick Lamar is no doubt one of the top names in the genre these days, and he linked up with U2 & Dave Chapelle to do a medley of the songs “XXX,” “DNA,” “American Soul,” and “King’s Dead.”  Peep the performance below. #YaDig
