Kendrick Lamar may not have won any awards at the Grammys tonight, but his performance of "M.A.A.D. City" alongside Imagine Dragons was one of the standout performances. After the award show ended, Jay Z and his close associate Tyran "TyTy" Smith came up to Kendrick and grabbed him by the shoulders. They weren't attacking him; judging from the video uploaded by Top Dawg Entertainment's president Dave Free, Jay and TyTy offered Kendrick some words of praise and encouragement.
