Kendrick Lamar has nabbed another Grammy.
It was announced before the live telecast that the rapper and fellow artists Bilal, Anna the Wise and Thundercat took home the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration hardware for their track “These Walls.”
They edged out their fellow nominees in the category, which included Big Sean, Kanye West and John Legend for “One Man Can Change The World”; Common and John Legend for “Glory”; Jidenna and Roman GianArthur for “Classic Man”; and Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown for “Only.”
Lamar, 28, led the pack with the most nominations, going into Monday night’s show with 11.
