    I wonder is Kanye vulnerable here but he was still the most voted Rap Album before they expanded the categories.

    Melodic Rap imo will be between Doja / Lil Nas X with Kanye being a spoiler.

    Are the rap categories expected to be added to Prediction Center?

    Despite the AOTY nomination I don’t think the passion for Kanye’s Donda is there. The album was more spectacle than quality. Same thing for Drake, there’s not passion or goodwill surrounding CLB. I think this award will be Nas and Tyler’s to duke it out with Nas coming out on top as a repeat winner.

    Voters might want to award The Weeknd as a makeup for the bullshit that was pulled last year and also give Lil Baby his first Grammy so I can see Hurricane winning Best Melodic Rap Song. Also Kanye has never gone home completely empty handed so he’ll get at least Gramophone to his name.

    Kendrick Lamar also isn’t going without some kind of recognition and Baby Keem also has a general field nomination so I feel Best Rap Performance is in the bag for him.

    Lastly, this is the Grammys final chance to award DMX. Also Jay-Z will NOT being going empty handed after becoming the most nominated artist in history. Killing two birds with one stone and awarding X and Jay plus Nas, a fellow NY Legend, will be too tempting for voters to pass up. Best Rap Song is the bag for them.

    Correction: Kanye went 0/8 back in 2017.

    Let’s discuss Melodic Rap. That category is interesting this year. Ion see how Nas X could win when they proved to us what type of winner they’ll choose. I understand that Anderson Paak is a Grammy favorite but the big hits still lost earlier this year

    They could surprise us again with a Tyler or J.Cole win. Kanye could win here based on his AOTY nom as support lol plus he was still the most voted Rap Album in the bunch that could give him an edge. J.Cole also went 4/4 in the Rap Field.

    Call me crazy, but I don’t think Kanye is a lock for Best Rap Album. Donda is still one of those albums that had a mixed response with fans and critics alike. I can see this going to Tyler, J. Cole or even Nas as a repeat. Drake has commercial success, but he bombed in most categories + he is not a Grammy favorite at all. I feel like this will be another year where the AOTY nominee loses its genre nomination in the final round.

    I honestly don’t see Nas repeating. I think best rap album is between Kanye and J. Cole.

    Recording Academy Removes Marilyn Manson’s Best Rap Song Grammy Nomination
    Daniel Kreps – 2h ago

    Marilyn Manson—who, as a co-writer and performer on Kanye West’s Donda, was controversially nominated for a pair of high-profile Grammys despite an ongoing sexual assault investigation—lost one of his nominations Thursday as the Recording Academy revised its list of nominees.

    Credited as “Brian Hugh Warner” on West’s “Jail Pt. 2,” Manson previously received songwriting credits—and thus, Grammy nominations—in both the Album of the Year and Best Rap Song categories; however, the New York Times reports that the Recording Academy has since updated the Best Rap Song nomination to recognize the West/Jay-Z collaboration “Jail,” which did not feature Manson as a songwriter, removing his nomination from that category.

    However, Manson is still credited as a songwriter and featured artist on Donda, up for Album of the Year, making the shock rocker eligible for that award should West’s latest album win that category.

    In the past year, more than a dozen women have come forward accusing Manon of psychological or sexual abuse, some of which have resulted in lawsuits. Manson denies the allegations.

    Following the outcry from both Manson and Louis C.K. (up for Best Comedy Album) being nominated for Grammys despite the allegations of sexual misconduct against them, Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. addressed the controversy.

    “We won’t look back at people’s history, we won’t look at their criminal record, we won’t look at anything other than the legality within our rules of, is this recording for this work eligible based on date and other criteria. If it is, they can submit for consideration,” Mason Jr. said. “What we will control is our stages, our shows, our events, our red carpets. We’ll take a look at anyone who is asking to be a part of that, asking to be in attendance, and we’ll make our decisions at that point. But we’re not going to be in the business of restricting people from submitting their work for our voters to decide on.”

    I don’t think it will go to Nas either. He didn’t get in any of the other rap categories aside from the posthumous DMX nomination, and only won his first Grammy this past year in a lineup devoid of A-list names (thanks to the committee, no doubt).

    If Kanye falters, J. Cole (who got in every other rap category) and Tyler, the Creator (who has a critically acclaimed album that just won the BET Hip Hop Award for AOTY, beating out Cole) are next in line.
