The 58th Grammy Award was done at the Staples centre, Los Angeles on February 15th, and it was a very great night for the Compton rapper, Kendrick Lamar, as he took home five awards from the 11 awards in the categories he was nominated. 

                         

Kendrick Lamar has definitely showed Drake while Barack Obama said he was better and had a good album. President Obama said that he would go for Kendrick and not Drake when asked in an interview on who was a better rapper, and also said his "To Pimp A Butterfly" is the best album of the year, though Drake dissed President Obama after that statement in his song,"Summer Sixteen".

                      

The white house would later tweet a congratulatory message to Kendrick Lamar after the win, moreover Kendrick won in the same category as Drake's album, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.
