I’m not so sure if the NARAS respects Doja Cat, but I can’t be sure about that until 2022…
Anyways, I second that Nas x Jay-Z deserves our attention. As well as Jay’s collaboration with Nipsey Hussle.

Now that committees are gone, idek what to expect from these categories. IMO rap will be one of the hardest genres to predict going forward.April 30, 2021 at 3:53 pm #1204237073
most people failed to predict any best rap album nominees last year as the committee was too unpredictable, i agree it will probably be easier nowApril 30, 2021 at 4:01 pm #1204237104
^ I really disagree with this. I don’t think a popularity contest in rap is cut and dry. Do rap voters really love the big names that much? Or will we see more nominations/wins like Revenge of the Dreamers III or Thundercat in Progressive R&B? I feel like the bigger names might be outnumbered in the end, especially if they can’t be bothered to vote.April 30, 2021 at 4:14 pm #1204237130
I will say that I enjoyed Drake’s albums rightfully getting the boot in Rap Album.April 30, 2021 at 5:05 pm #1204237201
Honey, it will be super easy to predict the Best Rap Album nominees. The most popular names always got in.April 30, 2021 at 5:34 pm #1204237251
Multiple nominations in one category for artists like Jay-Z and Eminem are back.May 1, 2021 at 3:13 am #1204237907

Rap was always one of the easiest fields to predict back in the day. They’ll probably nominate whichever artists were the most popular or buzzed.May 1, 2021 at 3:45 am #1204237922
I think you would have saw Megan Thee Stallion, Pop Smoke, Juice Wrld, Lil Uzi all getting in last year.
This year we’re looking at Megan, Big Sean, Kid Cudi (unless progressive), Lil Nas (unless progressive), Rod Wave as some options. It’s unfortunate we’ll miss out on nominees like Rapsody in the mix, but I think it’ll be more reflective of what people are listening to now. The Rap Album category seemed like it was voted on by people that were 40+.May 1, 2021 at 4:00 am #1204237932
21 savage and metro boomins album is getting inMay 3, 2021 at 11:57 am #1204240941
I think DJ Khaled will be nominated in Rap Album, and his Jay/Nas song in performance. The entire rap industry is on his album, so that bodes well.
He managed to sneak in a nomination in 2017, prior to the rap committee existing. And that was before he really really blew up. The committee was definitely blocking him the years following.
