Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo, Kendrick Lamar’s oddly worthy collection of throw aways(Untitled Unmastered), Chance the rappers gospel-ly Coloring Book and Drake’s not so rap Views; are at the fore front. What is your prediction?
Drake will easily win Best Rap Album. That category has always been a popularity contest.
As of 6/19/16
Best Rap Album:
Kanye West – “The Life of Pablo”
Drake – “Views”
Chance The Rapper – “Coloring Book”
G-Eazy – “When It’s Dark Out”
Kendrick Lamar – “untitled unmastered.”
Interesting you brought up Drake’s Views as being “not-so-rap”. I was actually wondering if the Grammys will let that album slide into the rap field or place it in Urban Contemporary to compete against the likes of Beyoncé and Rihanna. Remember when Roman Reloaded by Nicki Minaj was moved to Pop Vocal Album because the committee thought it had “too much” pop?
Drake will win.
