    the q-tip album was the best album that came out 08-09

    >>> “gettin up”and “we fight\we love” were two of my favorite songs last year, but i didn’t like the album as much as i thought i would. i’m glad to see the astract get a look, though

  3. spirit equality Says:

    Rihanna Speaks on Nude Photo Leak:

    “They were for my boyfriend at the time,” … “if you don’t send your boyfriend naked pictures, then I feel sorry for him”
    lol role model for young females right there

  7. why? Says:

    Cudi is probably knocked out right now because he got the news a few hours ago and was probably raging too hard that he passing out. I bet that people went to that Grammy nomination ceremony thinking that it was the actual Grammy’s. SMH.

  8. why? Says:

    passed > passing

  12. Jz Says:

    *plays 808s*

    Shit definitely got overlooked, but considering that these award shows are political….i guess i shouldn’t be surprised.

  13. EnglandRepresent Says:

    SPAM is never good

  14. brooklynstandup Says:

    no Losos Way
    no Jada
    no Slaughter House
    no Rick Ross

    they could have put slaughterhouse in the best rap group category at least

  16. nation Says:

    >> That being said, The Calm isn’t total shit so far.

    yo, I read this whole comment and was gonna take it in stride and say fuck it, it’s constructive criticism. until I saw the e-mail and realized who it was

    Amp saying something nice about my site > any of the trash I’ve written up until now

  17. TheCo!!inB Says:

    Florida Evans > Flo Rida

  18. SPATE Magazine Says:

    They are worthy, I agree wit it

  19. Rockabye Says:

    Yo, this is gonna be T-Swizzle’s Grammy year. Unless it’s Bey’s.

    Anything but the Peas.

  20. moresickaMC Says:

    Renaissance should win best rap album

    itll b a good look for quality hiphop

  21. Rockabye Says:

    And someone should just throw a Tumblr of Nahments up. Doing just that’s halfway to a book deal anyway.

  22. TheCo!!inB Says:

    lmao @ people thinkin q tip will win rap album of the year.
    *goes back to eating peanut butter and jelly sammich*

  23. Rockabye Says:

    who actually listened to the damn album..


    I downloaded it and listened to it for the sake of giving it one honest listen. It’s trash. The singles are okay, especially the one that steals that Eiffel 65 construction and the one with Nelly Furtado. Nothing else bumps, and Flo Rida “talking about roots” just doesn’t work.

  24. ridalen Says:

    Q-Tip should win, Eminem will.

  25. Johnzzz Says:

    Eminem, Dr. Dre & 50 Cent – “Crack A Bottle”

    Fuck 50 gonna get one…when Em carried the song

  26. trees Says:

    Row Dylan’d > Flo Rida

  27. mazi drop nigga Says:

    so rhianna sold the same as 50?
    you fags gonna say her career is over?
    its not about sales anymore

  28. H to the Says:

    because non rap fans or occasional rap fans go out and buy grammy winning rap albums, so they don’t wanna nominate anything too offbeat, offensive, or inaccessible.


    I’m a fan of Relapse but it was probably the most offensive you could get with an album without being ignorant. Step-father ass rape felching and licking fermunda cheese. So that’s not why. It’s album sales for sure.

    or nevermind, i guess it hasn’t leaked yet.

  33. Miami Music Says:

    I agree with Captain Planet. I got nothing but love for Flo and his success on the radio, but musically, with deep writing no one touches my man Rick Ross. He’s the BAWSE! Check out Rick Ross – Diamonds and Maybachs Part 2 Video here : http://305hiphop.com/content/rick-ross-and-triple-cs-diamonds-and-maybachs-pt2

  34. costhekid.blogspot.com Says:

    daaaamn best duo performance , wiz khalifa and currensy aint even on the list?! those niggas kill their shows!

  35. Prophecy_projectz Says:

    I remember the cut off date used to be like end of September/early October. Cause Graduation got nominated for 2008 and won and that came out Sept 11 2007…

  36. duck Says:

    how is raekwon not on the best album list?

  37. Beyonder Says:

    The Lonely Island & T-Pain – “I’m On A Boat” = Grammy’s don’t take hip-hop seriously…

    And watch that shit win…but you know, that might actually be good. Maybe we’ll get more substance back in commercial rap.

  38. ox90 Says:

    Aubrey Drake Gra(ha)mmy?

  39. brandonbayer Says:

    Flo Rida? No Rae? At least get the Wale album on there instead of Flo Rida

  40. jnelly Says:

    Kid Cudi should win best solo but they’ll probably give it to Jay just because

  41. Kanye Carter Says:

    Flo Rida’s nominated for Best Rap Album? More like Best CRAP album. Hopefully, that commercial flop won’t win. Same goes to The Lonely Island’s I’m On A Boat having a nominee. smh this year’s grammy award nods are pure mainstream irony.

  47. Rod-Man Says:

    I kinda hope ‘I’m On A Boat’ wins just to show people how easy it is to show up a lot of the mainstream out there. Maybe it’ll give real rappers some incentive to now allow such a thing to happen again.
