The 60th Annual Grammy Awards are this Sunday. For the biggest night of the year for the music industry, there are a lot of artists from Los Angeles that could take home some gold. Music supervisor Morgan Rhodes joined Take Two's A Martinez for a special preview of three Los Angeles artists that stand a good chance of winning.


Kendrick Lamar

Damn  

Clever.  Honest.  Ruminative.  Kendrick Lamar's fifth album is a study in introspection.  Over 14 tracks, he explores religion, fame, his legacy and his choices over 808s and trap beats.

Loyalty

And Fear

Tyler the Creator

Flower Boy 

Like the flowers in the nursery rhyme, "How Does Your Garden Grow," each one of the tracks on Tyler the Creator's latest album, Flower Boy, has a place in this album which is all about self discovery and growth. The album hints at a transformation in thought, aided by time and experience - and celebrity.


Tina Campbell

It's Still Personal 

Tina Campell's Grammy-nominated song, "It's Hard Not To,"  is personal - a song about forgiveness.  Whereas the rest of the album is about a relationship with God, this song is about a relationship.
