With the end of 2013 fast approaching, so are the annual Grammy Awards. We've already seen the Grammy nominations list, and when it comes to hip-hop, Kendrick Lamar is near the top of the list with 7 nominations for himself (Jay Z surpasses him with nine a piece), while Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Pharrell and Justin Timberlake also received 7 nods. 

The anticipation is definitely there, as fans wonder if K. Dot will take home Album of the Year with the critically acclaimed good kid, m.A.A.d city. Whether or not that happens, Kendrick will be taking the stage the night of the Grammy Awards, as he announced on Twitter last night.

Kendrick previously spoke on his Grammy nod, expressing his gratefulness. "That album, its a really raw album…there’s not too much crossover. For them [GRAMMYs] to even put it in that light, and sit in that light thats a win by itself. So if I take it home, that’s even more of a crazy feeling," Kendrick said.

Catch the West Coast spitter on the 56th Annual Grammy Awards stage on January 26th at 8 PM EST. The show will be broadcast live from the Staples Center in L.A.
