    1994 RAP SOLO

    Dr. Dre “Let Me Ride” – WINNER
    Paperboy – “Ditty”
    Sir Mix-a-Lot – “Just Da Pimpin’ In Me”
    MC Lyte – “Ruffneck”
    LL Cool J – “Stand by Your Man”

    I would have picked MC Late for Ruffneck

    1. MC Lyte
    2. Dr. Dre
    3. LL Cool J
    4. Sir Mix-a-Lot
    5. Paperboy

    2001 RAP SOLO

    Eminem “The Real Slim Shady” – WINNER
    Common – “The Light”
    DMX – “Party Up (Up in Here)”
    Mystikal – “Shake Ya Ass”
    Nelly – “Country Grammar (Hot Shit)”

    All of these songs were everywhere. I would not have been mad if Common or DMX won.

    “The Real Slim Shady” is iconic but hasn’t aged well. Eminem’s misogynistic & homophobic lyrics are gross. The way he also went after Pop artists felt like a desperate gimmick.

    2005 Rap Duo or Group

    The Black Eyed Peas “Let’s Get It Started” – WINNER
    Beastie Boys — “Ch-Check It Out”
    The Roots — “Don’t Say Nuthin”
    Snoop Dogg & Pharrell — “Drop It Like It’s Hot”
    Terror Squad — “Lean Back”

    Drop It Like It’s Hot should have won this one

    1. Snoop & Pharrell
    2. Terror Squad
    3. Beastie Boys
    4. The Roots
    5. The Black Eyed Peas

    2006 Rap/Sung

    Linkin Park and Jay-Z “Numb/Encore” – WINNER
    Gwen Stefani featuring Eve – “Rich Girl”
    Destiny’s Child featuring T.I. and Lil Wayne – “Soldier”
    Common featuring John Legend and Kanye West – “They Say”
    Ciara featuring Missy Elliott – “1, 2 Step”

    I agree with this winner. Numb/Encore is a reason why I wish this category existed in the 80s so that Walk This Way by Run DMC & Aerosmith could have won this award.

    Interesting that Jay Z won over Beyonce in this category.

    “They Say” was probably the runner up in this category.

    I miss the Rap/Sung category & how it used to be. This new Melodic Rap crap ain’t it.

    Rap/Sung used to be SUCH a good category

    I wanted “1,2 Step” to win that year. It was not only the biggest hit of that category, but it really outlasted all of those other songs. Besides that, it was a personal favorite of mine.

    Not only that, it also should’ve taken BEP’s place in Record. It’s a classic and a banger and one of the best rap songs of its decade. The BEP song is just mediocre.

    For Rap/Sung in 2006, I’m wondering if “Lose Control” (which won Best Music Video) were nominated over “1,2 Step” in this category, if it would have had a good chance at win that year?

    Coolio-“Fantastic Voyage”
    Craig Mack-“Flava in Ya Ear”

    Queen was deserving of this win. U.N.I.T.Y. is a classic.

    I would have picked Snoop Dogg. “Gin and Juice” has always been my favorite song of his.

    Honey, Snoop Dogg & Pharrell definitely should’ve won Best Rap Performance By a Duo or Group for “Drop It Like It’s Hot.”

    Black Eyed Peas + winning Rap Duo/Group = BARF!

    Such a great year for Rap, though.
