5 Odd Things About The 2013 Grammys


Hip-Hop and The Grammys have a weird relationship. They have since the beginning. Back in the 80’s Hip-Hop heads didn’t attend the show in protest of the rap nominations not being televised. These days they still aren’t being televised very much, but the Grammy committee seems to be doing better about recognizing Hip-Hop. Still, some stuff is odd and here’s a few matters that seems to stick out.

2 CHAINZ GOT NOMINATED!

Shout out to 2 Chainz! That dude did his thing in 2012! But why are the Grammys aware of him? He’s so hood and they are so haughty! Too bad it took so long for them to get around to dwelling in artists that Becky’s mother don’t know about. But, rumor has it, The Grammys are looking to address the popularity of urban music, even if the sales aren’t as great.


RICK ROSS’ WORST ALBUM….BUT HE GOT THE NOD!

Rick Ross’s God Forgives I Don’t is his second to last worst album of the 5 ( not to mention mixtapes). But, The Grammys gave him the nod on this one, skipping the last four. Better late than never.

THE BIG QUANDARY!

The Best Rap Album category is a beast! Nas, Drake, Rick Ross, The Roots, Lupe Fiasco, and 2 Chainz are all up for this one. Who will win? What is the deciding factor? They are all good in their own special way! As far as critical acclaim, Nas gets this one, because he has never won a Grammy!

PUBLIC ENEMY PERFORMING?

Aren’t these the guys that said, “Who gives a f**k about a gotdamn Grammy!?” You better believe times have changed! LL Cool J is also performing so the Gram’s cold went dumb with the old school.

FRANK OCEAN! 6 NOMINATIONS!

He struck a chord in 2012 and he’s winning something tonight!

  • You must be mindful that Rappers are fickle, they say fu*k the grammys when they don’t win and the love the grammys when they do win or at least get to perform……Rick Ross having one of his worst albums is just a matter of opinion, a black mans opinion of Rick Ross’s last album and or mixtape in comparison to a white mans opinion will ALWAYS be DIFFERENT….Nas may look young but he has an older fan base who don’t buy music, they just compare who is the greatest Biggie, Jay-z or Nas…..Finally you know that Frank Ocean was going to be noticed for something, revealing your homo ways will get you far in the music industry. LMAO

      @ Dior, I’m one of the older NAS fans. I bought his CD/ALBUM as many older cats would male and female..we the now older crowd made HIP HOP…It’s the current or modern day HIP-POP fan with all the social media outlets, downloading etc that don’t buy period….videos don’t sell music today, iTUNES does and people take the option to purchase only tracks they like instead of the entire CD. Radio play is rigged, Who does multi-platinum anymore….Em, Kanye,….the new cats are gold if that with weak tour runs..the game is and always was a business 1st. Corrupt at that.

    “Too bad it took so long for them to get around to dwelling in artists that Becky’s mother don’t know about.” – great line

    ‘As far as critical acclaim, Nas gets this one, because he has never won a Grammy!’ -horrible line

    good ross and PE points as well.

    also I wish Frank would have won one of the big awards.

    The grammys are the same as the Oscars. They award coonery and rarely if ever will they award positivity when it comes to black people.
