Kendrick Lamar will start 2014 off with a bang. The Compton-native announced on Twitter he will be performing on the biggest stage, the 56th annual GRAMMY Awards next month. “Jan. 26, 8pm. I’m performing @TheGRAMMYs on @CBSTweet #GRAMMYs,” said Kendrick, who is nominated for 7 GRAMMYs including “Album of the Year,” “Best New Artist,” and “Best Rap Album.”

Before hitting the stage at Cali Christmas 2013, Lamar spoke on good kid, m.A.A.d city receiving an “Album of the Year” nod. “That album, its a really raw album…there’s not too much crossover. For them [GRAMMYs] to even put it in that light, and sit in that light thats a win by itself. So if I take it home, that’s even more of a crazy feeling.”

The 56th Annual Grammy Awards take place on Sunday, January 26, live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
