Kendrick Lamar Dominates Grammy Nominations

By HHL Editors

Kendrick Lamar keeps getting mainstream love.

Last week it was To Pimp A Butterfly getting named Rolling Stone's album of the year. This morning it's K.Dot leading the pack with 11 Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Rap Album.

Taylor Swift and The Weeknd each received 7 nominations.

Lamar won two trophies at last year's Grammys for his single 'I,' which ended up on TPAB.

In 2014, Kendrick snagged seven Grammy nominations for Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, but was shut out at the podium when Macklemore's The Heist controversially won Best Rap Album.

The 2016 Grammys are on Sunday, February 15 and will be aired live on CBS.
