Kendrick Lamar had a major year in 2017 with his album DAMN. and everything else that followed after. It was easily one of the best, if not the best, album to drop in 2017 and the accolades he received were well-deserved. In December, the Grammys announced the nominations which included seven in the name of the Compton spitter. A few days back, they announced that he'll be performing at the show but new reports say his performance will include two legendary acts in their respective fields.
Kendrick will reportedly be joined by U2 and Dave Chappelle to kick off the Grammy Awards, E! News reports. While it's unsure what Chappelle's involvement is, we're excited to see what he has up his sleeve.
Kendrick Lamar and U2 collaborated on numerous occasions in 2017 with the latter joining the former on DAMN. highlight "XXX." The rapper also had contributions throughout U2's latest album, Songs Of Experience, for the album's intro and outro. It looks like they'll end up "XXX." considering "American Soul" off U2's latest album was the source of sample for Kendrick's song.
The Grammys is expected to be a big night for Kendrick Lamar. The rapper is currently in the ranks for not only the Best Rap Album category but also for Best Album. In addition, "HUMBLE." has four nominations for Record Of The Year, Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song and Best Music Video. And to top it off, Kendrick's Nike Cortez show collaboration is also expected to be released the same evening.
