Kendrick Lamar Is Glad His 11 Grammy Nominations Didn't Surpass Michael Jackson's 12. "I Can't Fathom Being As Great As Michael Without Putting Out The Work" (Video)

Video After The Jump

Prior to debuting his new song, "Untitled 2," on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy FallonKendrick Lamar sat down with the host for a conversation.

Jimmy reminded him that his album "To Pimp a Butterfly" has the most Grammy nominations ever for a rapper with eleven. He asked Kendrick if he wanted to surpass the late, great Michael Jackson's record setting 1984 twelve nods for "Thriller." (Michael won eight that year).

"I can't fathom being as great as Michael without putting out the work," Kendrick said. "Eleven is perfect. He's the legendary. I'm glad it's at twelve."

He later listens to a fan-made K. Dot mash-up.

@MG
I agree with you 100%... That album was HOT SWEATY GARBAGE and numbers don't lie... Especially for as much hype and him being a new artist... Drake outsells this on a mixtape and bodies Weak Mills...

WEAK

Kendrick fans remind me of Star Wars fans.. They just can't admit when the movie sucks... This new Force Awakens sucked donkey flong and so did Pimp a Gay Buttefly

I have spoken...
