9 Of The Most Memorable Hip-Hop Grammy Performances


If it’s one thing the Grammy Awards are good for other than golden phonographs, it’s the performances—and this Sunday’s awards ceremony will be a night to remember with hip-hop and rap in the forefront. Compton’s golden child of hip-hop Kendrick Lamar and independent prodigies Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will go head-to-head, the two contending in what might be the most controversial and heated debate of spring 2014—depending on who wins for “Best Rap Album,” and “Album of the Year.” On top of that, both are slated to deliver unforgettable performances along with Jay Z, Beyonce, Pharrell, Daft Punk and even Stevie Wonder set to touch the Staples Auditorium. As we gear up for the awards (airing Jan. 26), here’s nine of of the most memorable hip-hop performances from The Grammy Awards. – Andrew Asare
