    Based on what’s been released so far, my early rap predictions are as follows.

    Best Rap Album:
    1. Megan Thee Stallion – Good News
    2. Big Sean – Detroit 2
    3. DJ Khaled – Khaled Khaled
    4. Certified Lover Boy – Drake
    5.
    If Cardi & Kendrick drop their albums before the end of eligibility period then they’re both going to get nominated for sure. Isn’t J. Cole also meant to drop a project? Also Planet Her by Doja – would that be submitted to rap, or more likely pop? Or even progressive R&B?

    Best Rap Performance:
    1. Sorry Not Sorry – DJ Khaled, Jay-Z, Nas
    2. Rapstar – Polo G
    3. Up – Cardi B
    4. Body – Megan Thee Stallion
    5.

    Best Melodic Rap Performance:
    1. Best Friend – Saweetie ft. Doja Cat
    2. Rapstar – Polo G
    3. Body Language – Big Sean ft. Jhene Aiko & Ty Dolla Sign
    4.
    5.

    Best Rap Song:
    1. Sorry Not Sorry – DJ Khaled, Jay-Z, Nas
    2. Up – Cardi B
    3.
    4.
    5.

    Khaled Khaled is not happening in Rap Album. “SORRY NOT SORRY” could pop up in Rap Song though. Or maybe the Cardi track

    Doja Cat will once again be placed in Pop, with a few Rap submissions, such as Best Friend, which I would place in Best Rap Performance, not Melodic Rap.

    On an opposite situation, I would place Sorry Not Sorry in Best Melodic Rap Performance. The instrumental could’ve easily been used in an R&B ballad, and the chorus sung by James Fauntleroy makes it eligible. It’s like so made to measure to easily win that category that it features seven-time winner Jay-Z. It’s ugly that DJ Khaled may easily win yet again, but Nas should’ve won his second Grammy over a decade ago.

    In another topic, it kinda sucks that the end of the committees mean no Haram and no The Patents of Nobility in Rap Album.

    J. Cole is dropping a new album on 5/14! He’ll definitely get in and hopefully win.

    I think this will be J. Cole’s year to win Best Rap Album.

    This year is really weak so far, and it seems like Drake is never releasing at this point. Even if Cardi drops, I’m having a hard time seeing her win a 2nd time. She would join Kendrick, Eminem, Kanye, and Outkast as only rappers to win BRA at least twice. For that to happen alone is doubtful, but especially her doing it with her first two albums.

    J. Cole will be successful, and although he finally won a Grammy in 2020, it was for a feature. This would be awarding him alone.

    IDK if there’s a “it’s time to award Cole alone” narrative that’s strong enough to put him over the edge. The Grammys have always respected him, but he seems hit or miss, and if his past albums are indicative of this one then he’ll have a big debut week then kinda muted success.

    I still think Cardi can win. I doubt voters have in mind a list of people who have won twice, and I’m sure the album will be a smash. It’s definitely them two though, not sure if I see Megan winning.

    I’m not sure what to make of Cardi’s prospects. I feel like she was undeniable in her debut year. Now she has kind of plateaued in that arena – successful but not deniable anymore. It’s hard to imagine voters will up and give her a second Rap Album just like that. Not even Jay-Z has won his second yet.

    J. Cole is competitive, but that’s pending any Drake, Jay-Z or Kendrick offerings.

    • Performance – Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion
    • Melodic Rap Performance – DJ Khaled, Nas, JAY-Z, James Fauntleroy
    • Song – Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion
    • Album – J. Cole

    It’s J. Cole’s time to have all the spotlights on him.

    I’ve been saying the same exact thing for awhile regarding Cardi and was called crazy.

     

     

    Its no hate against Cardi, but she’s already peaked during her Bodak Yellow/Invasion Of Privacy era. She definitely could get a nomination but she’s not in a category with Kanye West & Outkast where people respect her artistry and she’s not being pushed like Eminem where he was the Great White Hope.

     

     

    Kendrick is GUARANTEED a W if he drops during the eligibility period (which I doubt happens. I think he’ll drop in the 4th quarter and SZA will be TDE’s big Grammy push this year) If not him and if Jay-Z doesn’t release this year I can totally see Cole getting his due  as he’s very much respected amongst his peers and the industry.

     

    Drake I don’t think will even submit if he drops during the eligibility period. He backed the Weeknd in blasting the Grammys and now that Weeknd has doubled down on his insistence in not submitting I think Drake will follow suit.

     

    The only other mainstream MC who happens to be a Grammy darling who is rumored to release an album soon is Kanye West. And I haven’t heard any rumblings that he’s going to return to secular music anytime soon so he’d probably submit in the Christian Album category again.

    J. Cole needs acclaim for me to take him as a serious contender across the board. But I’m sure he will get his obvious noms here. He performed quite well for his Middle Child era.

    Honey, Cardi B did NOT peak during her Bodak Yellow/Invasion of Privacy era.  If Cardi releases this cycle, sells well, and has universal acclaim (which y’all believe is the be-all-end-all), the bitch is winning Best Rap Album for a second time.

    Cole & Cardi better pray Hurricane Kendrick doesn’t drop. If he does it’s game over.
