Grammys Grammy Awards Kanye West Jay Z Nas Snoop Dog Drake Lil Wayne music entertainment news 13579086

Our two music awards editors -- Darrin Dortch and David Schnelwar -- agree on the winner of Best Rap Song at this Sunday's Grammys. 

“Daughters” - Nas
“Lotus Flower Bomb” - Wale & Miguel
“Mercy” - Kanye West
“The Motto” - Drake and Lil Wayne
“N***as In Paris” - Jay-Z & Kanye West -- Darrin, David
“Young, Wild & Free”- Snoop Dog and Wiz Khalifa

Darrin's analysis
Jay-Z and Kanye West are beloved in the rap field. They are a near lock to win for “N****s in Paris” which is nominated for Best Rap Song and was a huge pop hit.

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.

David's analysis
Kanye West is the biggest winner in this category with five. This year he is a double nominee for his collaborations of “N***as in Paris” and “Mercy.”
