“In terms of that category, I think it should go to Kendrick Lamar. He’s family. TDE is family, and I understand why Hip-Hop would feel like Kendrick got robbed if he didn’t win. I’m not trying to compare albums; I think you can make an argument for both. With that being said, I am a huge supporter of what Kendrick does.
And because of that, I would love to win in a different category. We obviously had massive success on commercial radio, and I think that, in ways, ‘The Heist’ was a bigger album, but Kendrick has a better rap album.”
Kendrick Lamar is up for seven GRAMMYs this year, including Album of the Year for his 2012 album Good Kid, M.A.A.D City. Lamar is also nominated for Best New Artist, Best Rap Song (A$AP Rocky’s “F***in Problems”), and Best Rap Performance (“Swimming Pools (Drank)”). He will also perform at 2014 GRAMMY Awards.
