  • OssO

    Oh please Grammys after all the fuckery youve made when it comes to hip hop over the years, please give Life is good best rap album.

  • Oh Dat’s your Gurl!?

    I blame Kanye West for 2 Chainz Grammy Nomination and Cheef Keef…
    No one man should have all that power

    I wish Cherry Wine would win. I wish Daughters Would Win. I wish Life is good Would.

    But this business is So Fucked it would Unfortunately never Happen.

    Yall Know who the real GOAT is fuck rolling stone too.

    Me too… I so wish Nas would get the props he’d deserves… Its a shame… Orange is a good albu,, but Nas shit rocks.. and its soo dope…. Daughters and Cherry Wine both deserves grammy’s, but artist like Nas gets a grammy when their dead and gone.. then he will be listed as the greatest. Our society is so hurtful

  • Angelo

    @jinx u are right bro! SMH… As Erick Sermon said…When It Turned Into The Rap Business, The Culture Died.

  • RRR

    really !!!! lil wayne ,drake,rick ross,2chainz 0.o
    worst rapper alive is ….

  • ECU

    Glad Nas is up but he’ll probably get robbed. LUPE OR NAS BETTER WIN RAP ALBUM OF THE YEAR

  • Devante

    I’m pulling for Nas… It would be nice for him to get one of his own beside the Grammys he won for ghost writing for Will Smith after putting 20 year if work

    Nas is the most deserving artist. Do we have to wait till he’s gone to appreciate and award his masterpieces?

  • dmfslimm

    as far as the best rap album nominees are concerned, i guess Live From the Underground never happened.

  • Bry from Boston

    Best rap album… Was there even one lol??? Rap music is not what it used to be.. Im only 26 but i cannot understand these kids 8-10 years younger than me with Wiz Khalifa & Big Sean type stuff.. What is that lol? Ill stick to my 90′s albums.. Dogg Food, Murder Was the Case Soundtrack, Life After Death, All Eyez On Me, even Will Smith.. These new tracks cant fuck with songs like summertime (will smith)… The funny thing is even songs like “I Wish” by Skee-Lo which who was the ultimate underdog destroy anything that comes out today. I watched Tupac Ressurection last night on Showtime.. Watching Pac walk down Venice Beach with Serena Allteral(howeva you spell it it) with no security juat being real as fuck. Rap was so fucking real at that time. Pac was so fucking cool (not swag) during that MTV interview. I miss those days. Muaic videos like All I Need by method man… Shit man… Hard to be a fan these days… P.S. I only wrote a huge paragraph cause Im fucked up and bored lol domlnowt hate a brotha lol.

  • Lil Majer The Cartune

    Nas def deserves best rap album, and either though I think 2 Chainz album was dope too, how in ‘thee’ fxck did that even get a worthy nomination? If K. Dot was a nominee, he woulda took that home so EASY! Until next year though…

  • Dashing

    Nas BETTER, I repeat, BETTER win for album of the year., although a case could be made for Drake or The Roots.

    If it goes to Lupe, Rick Ross, or 2 Chainz I’ll be furious.

  • http://j nasssssssdir

    If nas doesn’t win.. ..lord help us all

  • kayandgee

    i wish rozay wins, just for the haters but i think nas or the roots or more ‘politically correct’ winners

  • SayItAin’tSo

    If those Grammy folks even remotely trying to stay believable/ relevant, Nas better be walking home with some hardware in is hands!

  • http://phutureflowz.wordpress.com mrnoozik

    Why did WTT & Take Care get grouped up into this years rap albums, Rozay, Duece’ Lupe & Esco were supposed 2 fight it out for this years awards, who da fuck listens 2 Frank Ocean (closet fagz). In my opinion Drizzy is the most accomplished rapper sales/impact wise of all the nominees this yr. #YMCMB 4eva!!! Tunechi 4 President 16
