The Grammys were all about Kendrick Lamar last night.
The rapper gave the best performance of the night, wowing the audience with “The Blacker The Berry” and “Alright” and a set that included his band members in a jail cell and Lamar entering the stage as part of a chain gang. He also swept the awards show, ending the night with five Grammys for Best Rap Album, Best Music Video, Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.
Everyone was talking about Kendrick last night and people will probably be talking about him for the next few days as they listen to To Pimp a Butterfly over and over again this week. But the coolest moment of praise came from the White House, giving a nod to Kendrick with possibly the greatest tweet of all time:

We’re pretty sure Kendrick’s floating on air right now.
