The Grammys and Hip Hop – 2015
Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP2 (thank the heavens) beat Iggy Azalea for “Best Rap Album”. Unfortunately, there was no honorable mention for Common, Schoolboy Q , Wiz Khalifa or Childish Gambino. Em has won the “Best Rap Album” Grammy award five times ( 2000, 2001, 2003, 2010, 2015).
So, we have a lot to be grateful for. If you don’t think so, check out, “Five of the Grammy’s Worst Snubs in Hip Hop,” by the Source.
J. Cole definitely reminded us during one of the Grammy’s worst snubs…
Oh and by the way, thank God Sam Smith beat Izzy in the best new artist category – whew – that was close! And, thank goodness Prince showed up in orange to present album of the year to Beck and reminded us that albums still matter, just like books and #Blacklives.
