Grammy Week: Rap Categories

The 38th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Press Room

The last few years have brought a renaissance for Rap with the Grammy voters.

Rappers are now crossing into the major categories, and have been for the last few years . 2014 was a big year for Rap, especially since two rap albums are nominated for album of the year.

R&B, otherwise know as Rhythm & Blues or MY LIFE, has always been my genre. It’s the music I get the most excited for, which means its the category I feel the most passionate about.

The winners are announced before the show and are posted before also. This translates into me opening my computer and screaming because all of my musical angels have lost.

With that, lets predicts this years winners with the goal of seeing how mad I’m going to be 8:00 Sunday night.
