‘I am better than OK’

The rapper who won three Grammys on Sunday, for the Best Rap Album, the Best Rap Performance and the Best Rap Song award, went on to thank fans and well wishers for their concern. “I greatly appreciate the concern and support, but I am better than OK. We are incredibly proud and are basking in this moment. I am also grateful that one of my prayers has been answered – the day after my Grammy win – I learned that my son, who has been on the list for a kidney for years, finally has a match. Obviously, we are elated.” He also thanked his wife, Shay, for staying by his side.

Although the main reason behind his arrest remains unclear, The Hollywood Reporter wrote in a report that he was booked for misdemeanor and had nothing to do with anything that happened at the arena. He had won his three awards during the pre-show ceremony when several Grammys were handed out ahead of the main telecast beginning at 5:00 pm PT. The rapper is known for his activism on social and political issues such as racial justice and police brutality.
