The official airing for the Grammys hasn’t even started yet, and Kendrick Lamar is already winning big. So far, Kung-fu Kenny has walked away with three Grammys – Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song, and Best Music Video – and apparently, he’s crushed one Grammys record.
According to a report verified by Affinity Magazine, Kendrick just set the new record for wins under the Best Rap Performance Category. The rapper recently took the award for Best Rap Performance for his work on “HUMBLE.’ off his latest studio album, DAMN. The new honor makes this his third win in the category, with previous wins in 2014 and 2016.
Fans have already taken to Twitter to rejoice and celebrate Kendrick’s triumphant sweep. But it isn’t over yet! Kendrick is still hoping to walk away with Album of the Year, Best Rap Album, and Record of the Year. Stay tuned to see if he can do a clean sweep!

He won both categories. Thank God. WELL DESERVED. There was no way on God's green earth that Bodak Yellow would win over these other amazingly articulated songs.— Peacekeeper (@iamworthy13) January 28, 2018
