Lamar wants to sweep Grammy Awards for hip-hop community

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Kendrick Lamar says he wants to win majorly the Grammy Awards for the hip-hop community.

With 11 nominations, the 28-year-old rapper comes one short of tying with Michael Jackson for scoring the most nominations in one night, reported People magazine.

"I'm still soaking that all in. Michael will forever be the greatest. I'm glad it was at 11. I would never want to even think about putting myself on the same level as Michael, simply because I haven't put in the work that he did. It couldn't be a better number.

"Ultimately, for the hip-hop community, I would love for us to win them all. Because we deserve that. Period. I want all of them. Because it's not only a statement for myself, but it's a statement for the culture. They're all important, because of the foundation the forefathers laid before me. Nas didn't get a chance to be in that position. (Tupac). So to be acknowledged and to actually win, it's for all of them.
