You could say rapper Kendrick Lamar is having a good night. NBC News wondered earlier today if the president’s favorite rapper’s new album, “To Pimp a Butterfly,” could take the top prize at the Grammys.

Not sure. But Lamar did indeed win an armful of awards, including the coveted Best Rap Album.

He also gave quite the performance, marching onstage at the head of a chain gang inside of a prison set.

What could be better than winning a Grammy? Getting a shoutout from the White House for winning a Grammy, of course.

“My Brother’s Keeper” is President Obama’s mentoring program “to address persistent opportunity gaps faced by boys and young men of color and ensure that all young people can reach their full potential.” Lamar was invited to the White House to appear in a PSA to support the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative and MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership.

Congratulations to Kendrick Lamar, but if we’re going to mentor young people to reach their full potential, could we include some people from those STEM fields that are so important? Not to slight Lamar; that’s the Grammys’ job.
