Kendrick Lamar's rise through the music industry could reach another level during Sunday's 60th annual Grammy Awards. A nominee for Record of the Year and Album of the Year, Lamar is in line for two of the most prestigious awards. "He is really what the Grammys should be all about," said Jeff Miers, music critic for the Buffalo News. "He became immensely popular, but he's also doing something that's really bold and new and forward-looking."
"I also think he has a lot to say that's relevant to today in these interesting times in which we live," added Miers, who plans to be active during Sunday's broadcast of the 60th annual Grammy Awards.
He'll be writing his column for Monday's on-line and print editions of the Buffalo News. He's also encouraging fellow music lovers to follow him on Twitter @JeffMiers.
"If you're interested in my little quips, they tend to be mildly sarcastic."
