Our two music awards editors -- Darrin Dortch and David Schnelwar -- agree on the winner of Best Rap Performance at this Sunday's Grammys.
Drake f./ Lil Wayne - “HYFR (Hell Yeah F***ing Right)” -- Darrin, David
Jay-Z & Kanye West - “N****s in Paris”
Nas - “Daughters”
Kanye West f./ Big Sean, Pusha T & 2 Chainz - “Mercy”
Young Jeezy f./ Jay-Z & Andre 3000 - “I Do”
Kanye’s popular “Mercy” is also nominated here and in Rap Song as is Nas’ “Daughters.” Nas is the spoiler here if the Kanye songs split votes.
Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Otis” won Best Rap Performance last year. They are both double nominees in this category this year.
Nas is nominated throughout the Rap Field this year and has yet to win a Grammy.
