Nas Speaks On Never Winning A Grammy Award

(AllHipHop News) The relationship between the Grammys and Hip Hop has often times been a strained one. The fact that a lot of the top artists in the genre have never won a gilded gramophone has some fans scratching their heads.

One of those legendary rap acts that has never made it to the podium to accept a Grammy award is Nas. The New York emcee spoke about the fact that after 13 nominations he has never won during VH1’s The Tanning of America panel.

“I like that the Grammys nominated me,” said Nas. “I know the hugest platform for music is the Grammys, it matters. . . but something that huge is never gonna get it right. So it’s okay. It gives me the opportunity to wear a nice suit on a red carpet.”

Nas was previously nominated for four awards at the 2013 Grammys including Best Rap Album for Life Is Good. He lost in that category to Drake’s Take Care.
