Kendrick was asked how he felt about receiving seven Grammy nominations over the weekend, Lamar chose to thank numerous outlets.
“It feels great. I got some of the best fans, some of the best family, the best radio stations supporting me, and that’s who I owe it to at the end of the day. I need that love [to win]. That album is a really raw album, it’s not too much crossover. So for them to even put it in that light, that’s a win by itself. So if I take it home that’s even more of a crazy feeling.” (Power 106 FM)
