  • Tim Lee VA Stand Up

    Jay-Z is smart for not getting nominated last year for BP3……leaves him very much relevant and his album relevant a whole year later.

  • Post no billz

    Am i the only one still offended by the fact that “our” awards aint even televised in 2011?

    So BP3 that came out in 2009 is nominated for a Grammy Award in 2011? That shit make no sense.

  • em

    James were u born with a dick in your mouth?? HATER. why is it the same people commenting do u got jobs or suming to do.

  • Word

    But im glad Jay got to take home some hardware this year. BP3 was a good album which was just as “pop” as Ems album so i dunno how yall call Em a pop star and not Jay.

  • ddave

    Hopes the homie Aubrey wins at least one.

    Big Boi’s “Shutterbugg” should have won over Jay’s “On To The Next One” even tho Jay’s was the bigger track. IMO of course.

    EMINEM = POP

    DRAKE =- POP

    KANYE = POP

    WIZ KHALIFA = POP

  • Feminem

  • Tim Lee VA Stand Up

    @Notoriousrambo Dumb ass its call rap dumb dumb fuck hip hop!

  • OffYaSelf

    wow lmao so many stans on this thread
    fuck outta here if you were a real em fan youd realize that recovery was ok at best
    smh i fucking hate the grammys

  • gay-z

    onto the next one had a sick beat, but thats it. sucked otherwise. u cant even say those artist are pop either.

  • NotoriousRambo

    TIM LEE VA STAND UP: “OMG I CANT BELIEVE JUSTIN BIEBER IS GONNA PERFORM AT THE GRAMMIES YOU GUYS DEFINITELY NEED TO CHECK OUT HIS MOVIE I WAS FIRST IN LINE I GAVE IT 5 OUT OF 5 DILDOS I CANT WAIT FOR THE DVD TO COME OUT” :D

  • gay-z

    stans? get outta here. recovery was nasty, and so wasnt his old shit. u cant expect a 38 year old guy to rap about the shit he did on slim shady LP anymore.

  • NotoriousRambo

    FUCK A GRAMMY ONLY NIGGAZ NOMINATED IN RAP ARE SELL OUTS

  • EA

    Last time I checked Album of the Year was the biggest categorie…

  • breeeeathe

    I thought pop was short for popular, is rap popular enough to be categorized as pop?

  • OffYaSelf

    @gay-z who says he has to rap about the same shit? beats on recovery were wack the features were wack (pink wtf?) love the way you lie was fucking gay unless your a girl or a fag and the album was nothing special
    fuck outta here stan

  • OffYaSelf
  • feining liquor often

    real talkk, recovery was dope at first, but come one, it is NOT an album that should win Album of the year. Hands down much better albums out there

  • Belize loves Eminems

    You Mad co-sign

    drake stay gettin robbed by the old ass niggas

    congrats to jayz i guess

  • lol

    hahahahaahahahahaha omfg. call his beats trash or whatever uwant or what the new word for rap, pop. he still kills it and still spits nasty lyrics u dont know what ur talking about. call me stan i dont give a fuck. hes still the best rapper/lyricist in the game no doubt, try and argue that. i agree he shoulda featured other people. like not lil wayne. but u gotta account that he felt he had to appeal to the girls for his to help his come back…and clearly it worked. and eminem put more effort into recovery than any other artist did nominated for album of the year. eminem deserves it.

  • Aggie Pride

    I dont understand iz dis 2010 grammies i mean all of his shit came out n 2009

  • NOT AN IGNORANT HATER

    I dont understand why yall sit there and waste yall time typing all that hating shit like its gonna change anything. Your input isnt going to change a damn thing so you might as well save it. And also I like both Em and Jay they’re both good at what they do and they both will get recognized for their good work so just stop all the hate Em’s time will come soon.

    for me Beautiful by Eminem was way better then any song on recovery especially Not Afraid. Beautiful (for me) was a much more meaningful song….

  • HashRain

    I call bull on Jay-Z he got grammys noms and wins for Blueprint 3 last year, check his wiki its bull and also Empire State of mind can’t compete with Not Afraid…Not Afraid was the 16th and 2nd rap song to debut the Hot 100…are you kidding me, Jay-Z empire state of mind was good, but I’ll be damned Recovery was better

  • rickthespic

    @HashRain This year’s Grammys were supposed to honor those songs and albums released between September 1st, 2009 and September 30th, 2010. jay-z’s BP3 came out i think a week after the cut off date but D.O.A the song that won a grammy last year was released before then thats why it won… kinda retarded i know

  • georgewbush

    def jam shut it down. bahahaha thats raw.

  • tinkerbell

    I cannot believe, On to the Next Won….Please the voting needs to start over….
