In a recent interview kendrick talked about his nominations and it’s importance.

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. Pac. So to be acknowledged and to actually win, it’s for all of them.

This is very true from Kendrick. Rappers like Nas were never able to get the recognition they deserved. Kendrick winning grammys is bigger than just for Kendrick, but for lyrical rap to stay alive.
