The 2023 Grammy Awards are in the books, and the night was a huge success for Kendrick Lamar. The rap superstar was presented the award for Best Rap Album by Cardi B, and he emerged victorious over four other nominees. This marks the third time Lamar has won the award, having previously won in 2016 and 2018.
The night was a big one for Lamar, who also took home the trophies for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for his single “The Heart Part 5”. He was also nominated for Best Melodic Rap Performance for “Die Hard”, but lost the award to Future, Drake, and Tems’ track “Wait for U”.
Lamar was the most-nominated male artist at the 2023 Grammy Awards, with eight total nods. Only Beyoncé, with nine nominations, surpassed him. His win for Best Rap Album was the highlight of the night, as he was victorious over Pusha T (It’s Almost Dry), Jack Harlow (Come Home the Kids Miss You), Future (I Never Liked You), and DJ Khaled (God Did).
Kendrick Lamar has solidified his place in music history with his win for Best Rap Album at the 2023 Grammy Awards. His third win in the category proves he is a force to be reckoned with in the rap game, and his eight total nominations make him the most-nominated male artist of the night. Congratulations to Kendrick Lamar for his impressive win!
