Kendrick Lamar is winning big at the 2016 Grammy Awards and the ceremony hasn't even started yet. Before the awards show began Monday night (Feb. 15), the rapper's To Pimp a Butterfly cut "These Walls" has earned Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.

A strong, radio-friendly track, "These Walls" features Bilal, Anna the Wise and Thundercat and finds the MC flexing lyrically on sex and life's obstacles. Terrace Martin, Larrance Dopson and Sounwave produced the effort while James Fauntleroy and Rose McKinney helped Kendrick with his pen game for this one.

Big Sean's “One Man Can Change the World” featuring Kanye West and John Legend; Common and John Legend's “Glory," Jidenna's “Classic Man” featuring Roman GianArthur and Nicki Minaj's “Only” featuring Drake, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown were up against Kendrick in the category.

What makes "These Walls" hit even harder is its accompanying video. Directed by Colin Tilley and the Little Homies, the clip finds K. Dot in a motel with some ratchet behavior going down. There's strippers, jail time and even actor Terry Crews hitting the Quan along with the 28-year-old who's got a maniacal smile going on.

In addition to his Rap/Sung Collabo trophy, the West Coast rhymer landed two more wins before the official ceremony started. "Alright" scored Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance. With three wins moving into the Grammy Awards, K. Dot is certainly setting the stage for a major night of accomplishments.

Next up: his controversial performance and competing for Album of the Year (To Pimp a Butterfly) and Song of the Year ("Alright").
