The ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ rapper came away with five awards on the night

Kendrick Lamar’s show-stopping Grammys performance has dominated the conversation around this year’s awards, despite the Compton rapper losing out on Best Album of Year to Taylor Swift.
Lamar’s politically-charged performance was widely praised with stars like Snoop Dogg, Vince Staples and even The White House lining to give the rapper plaudits on Twitter.
