Kendrick Lamar Grammys 2

The Grammys would not be The Grammys without some controversy and the 56th awards were no exception.  Compton MC Kendrick Lamar  was up against Macklemore and Ryan Lewis in every rap category and Album of The Year but got the India Irie treatment walking away with no trophies.

Jay Z, Alicia Keys, Pharrell and Bruno Mars did get acknowledged in their respective categories, but the duo of Macklemore and Lewis snatched four brass sippy cups before the night was done.
