Who will win the 2017 Grammy for Best Rap/Sung Performance?December 19, 2016 at 4:39 pm #1201972415
We can automatically eliminate “Broccoli”. It’s not happening.
The Kanye West tracks will probably cancel each other out. So, this would boil down to “Freedom” and “Hotline Bling.”
“Freedom” basically sums up everything about the Lemonade project. It contains Kendrick Lamar, who has become a huge Grammy favorite. Beyoncé is up for three performance categories, and this is her best chance at winning.
“Hotline Bling” is a huge song, and could definitely win in this lineup. Plus, it’s the first solo song since the changes.
Flip a coin. “Freedom” for the win!December 20, 2016 at 12:01 am #1201972584
D.R.A.M. & Lil Yachty don’t have a chance in hell. Both of those Kanye West songs will cancel each out. It’s not like Kanye would’ve have won with one song nominated. Drake’s biggest competition here is Beyoncé & Kendrick Lamar. Mrs. Knowles-Carter is a Grammy darling. So, watch out! Drake had the biggest hit here and he dominated Rap in 2016. He wins.
SHOULD WIN: Drake, “Hotline Bling”
WILL WIN: Drake, “Hotline Bling”December 20, 2016 at 2:36 pm #1201972848
Gonna go out on a limb and say that this is the ONE rap category Drake will lose. Beyoncé has three performance nominations this year, and she’s not winning the pop and rock ones. And she’s literally the only person who can take down Drake in this category this year.
I honestly would love to see “Ultralight Beam” win, just because it would mean Grammys for Kirk Franklin, Kelly Price, and Chance (all of whom I’m a HUGE fan – and only one of them is currently a Grammy-winner), but it will obviously split votes with “Famous.”December 22, 2016 at 8:47 am #1201973686
Hopefully Beyoncé and Kendrick.December 23, 2016 at 3:59 pm #1201974267
I think it’s Freedom vs. Hotline Bling, with Freedom with the slight edge. Probably Drake’s only loss in the Rap categories.December 31, 2016 at 8:17 am #1201977801
i’m going with Freedom here but looking at previous years’ winners, it’s not wise to bet against Drake.January 3, 2017 at 4:20 pm #1201979090
Would Nina Simone technically win if Famous won this category?January 3, 2017 at 4:53 pm #1201979103
That award wouldn’t go to the writers but only the performers Kanye and Rihanna. Nina isn’t listed under the official credits for Rap Song anyway.January 3, 2017 at 6:20 pm #1201979160
Kanye could have won this if he didnt have 2 songs nominated. Freedom will win here. Should Win: Hotline Bling or Famous Will win: Freedom
Well, Jay-Z got double nominations in Best Rap/Sung Collaborations in 2014 Grammy Awards but still won though. But this year that scenario won’t happens.

“Holy Grail” was a lot bigger than “On The Run,” which was probably just filler to big with.January 3, 2017 at 11:14 pm #1201979281

not as a writer lmao. They used her voice for the outro of the song. Why isn’t she considered a performer?
Similarly, if Hymn for the Weekend won Pop DG (if it was nominated), would Beyonce have won? She “performed” in it. But she wasn’t credited so I’m not sure.
