    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!

    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”

    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.”

    Drake is not a Grammy darling. Kanye West won’t win because votes will split. D.R.A.M is so far away.

    Should Will : Beyoncé feat. Kendrick Lamar, Freedom
    Will Win : Beyoncé feat. Kendrick Lamar, Freedom

    I think it’s Freedom vs. Hotline Bling, with Freedom with the slight edge. Probably Drake’s only loss in the Rap categories.

    i’m going with Freedom here but looking at previous years’ winners, it’s not wise to bet against Drake.

    Would Nina Simone technically win if Famous won this category?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    But if voters were going to choose 1 Kanye song they would probably pick “Ultralight Beam” no? It’d also be a way to award Chance.
