    Will this be where Drake and Meek Mills cross paths? The funniest thing would be for Drake to snuff Meek, that would have ppl dying of laughter.

      • Yanks or Nerve

        Couldn’t care less either way, just thinking of the funniest outcome.

      • swift

        well, in that case would it be funny If Meek snuffed Drake, then all the corny mfers would be screaming about real street dudes attending the Grammys and that meek was jealous and all that bull shit?

      • swift

        thats why I called it “revenge of the nerds groupie fantasy” thats what the whole nomination of back to back is…….. we gonna show these ghetto street niggas who runs hip hop. its ours now. ghostwriting lipsyncing all in all allowed

  2. K8 Marketing

    I find it hilarious that “Back to Back” was nominated for best rap performance. Meek cannot catch a break! I love Drake, J cole, and K Dots album so whoever wins im happy with. I’m leaning a bit more towards J Cole because there was no features on it.


    Congradulation to Kendrick and J cole, this shows that u can make an album with substance, and not follow trends.

  4. Black Jay Supreme

    Watch. Drake bout to start crying again cause he got shut out. Hahahaha….. Kendrick probably won’t win Album of the Year. From the way the nominations are being stacked, they’ll give him a conciliatory Rap Album of the Year and smack Drake’s b*tch ass in the face.
    On another note…. Meek Mill will probably be sitting at home with his fingers crossed, praying Drake don’t win that one. Hahahaha

    • Rapfan

      Ah crazy a** “Jews run everything” guy. You’re my favorite kind of nut job on the internet. Now please tell me, in 10 rants or less, exactly what did you learn in the barber shop about Jewish people?

      • ytgarner

        That drake being nominated for a diss track is bullshit. Especially when songs like no vaseline ether or takeover were never considered and clearly they were in heavy rotation

      • swift

        exactly, this is some more maclemore type shit. not in terms of sound but meaning for the same ulterior motive

      • game213

        those diss records were not as big as b2b, those were just heard in the hip hop world, nigga everyone and their mama heard b2b

      • ytgarner

        Guess you wasn’t alive during that time. And as far as takeover and ether you should know better

      • Huggie Pacino

        Nigga…..back to back wasn’t even a song,it’s a freestyle and he got a granny nod….
        Why not energy or know yourself or hotline bling…drake gets nominated for anything he does…promo for anything he drops ..he’s their pet…Jewish comes before race…no I’m not a nut job…so chill

    • swift

      regardless of how I feel about That con-Fetty album they put out. Trap queen has to be record of the year in some kind of category.

  5. Larry Sandwiches

    Hahaha!! Like it or not, every writer on this site and every single person who commented on a Meek/Drake article during their “feud”, is to blame for ‘Back 2 Back’ being up there.

    You can claim he’s being “pushed” all you want, cus whether or not you claim to like it, EVERYBODY IS EATING IT.

    • swift

      thats bullshit. I remember the year that Nora Jones swept through the Grammy’s and nobody knew who she was. Those fuckers know what they are doing. This aint got nothing to do with internet traffic bots or popularity.

      • Larry Sandwiches

        ….ummmmm….everybody knew who Nora Jones was…that wasnt an exclusive club in the least bit homie.

    • swift

      and thats exactly why its nominated…to get all the drake gropies and meek haters to watch. Grammy ratings been going down and losing relevancy.

  6. tony ejesco

    Drake is being nominated multiple time to show meek ass mill ain’t relevant to the game no more! Drizzy drizzle on meek happiness!
