The 2016 Grammy Awards that aired Monday, February 15 on CBS had many highly talked about and memorable moments but there was one performance in particular that has raised a community’s pride to higher levels following Beyoncé‘s Super Bowl 50 performance.
Grammy-winning rapper Kendrick Lamar performed two songs; “The Blacker The Berry” and “Alright” off his To Pimp a Butterfly album, but it was the imagery and underlying message that was taken away from the performance. Kicking off the performance the rapper emerged in prisoner attire bound in chains with other prisoners behind him. He wrapped his chains around his mic and rapped. In the second half of the performance he rapped in front a fire pit with African dancers taking the stage. It made some beam with pride, some uncomfortable, but it was meant to make you feel something.
