Can Jay-Z beat Kendrick?
Who the hell is Laila’s Wisdom? That act is so not winning. Migos over A Tribe Called Quest. Get real! Tyler, the Creater will go home empty-handed. Jay-Z hasn’t won this category in almost 20 years. That won’t change. Kendrick Lamar had a wonderful year and will be honored for that.
SHOULD WIN: Kendrick Lamar, DAMN.
WILL WIN: Kendrick Lamar, DAMN.
I hope Jay Z will win this!
I’d like for this to be the shittiest Grammy season ever so that the BRP learns to never repeat anything close this.
This could go either way.
The rap committee stacked this category, like other categories in rap, for just Jay-Z and Kendrick. There’s no way Migos can upset, and Rapsody and Tyler The Creator are clear reflections of the new rap committee. Drake probably would have been snubbed anyway.
Jay-Z hasn’t won this category in nearly 20 years. He is up for his first AOTY nomination, so that could hold a lot of weight.
Kendrick, however, has become a rap favorite in this field and is in contention for his biggest album with tons of acclaim. This would have been a cakewalk win for Kendrick if it hadn’t been for the Grammy committee riding Jay-Z’s nuts this year.
I still think Kendrick can pull this off, along with the other rap categories.
Should Win: DAMN. or 4:44 (Both are great albums)
Will Win: DAMN.
So the newly-introduced committee was supposed to balance this category, but fucked it up even more by snubbing A Tribe Called Quest’s final album? Lol…
I think the Grammy’s should really disband all review committees.
As much as I love Rapsody, Laila’s wisdom did not deserve the nomination(At least not for Laila’s wisdom *those who want to get to know her can check out her Beauty and the Beast EP. It was 10/10*) She clearly is the best female rapper out though. I loved Tyler’s album. Top 5 this year.
Jay’s album was great but ATCQ’S Thank you for your service was more deserving. With that being said. I think DAMN. will win and I hope it wins.
