Surprise: Kendrick Lamar racking 'em up
"Good kid" indeed. The 26-year-old Kendrick Lamar has had a big year, riding the wave of his major label debut "good kid, m.A.A.d.city" since it came out last October and contributing to a ton of great tracks in 2013, but still, no one could have predicted that he'd stack up seven nominations including album of the year. That's the same amount of nominations as Justin Timberlake, which is pretty crazy considering Lamar has never had a number one single. Seems like the Grammy voters read a lot more Pitchfork this year.
