    ==============================================
    Tip & Jay have been replaced by Eminem & Drake.

    It might lack the “swagger” of last year’s performance but I’d say there’s a good chance this performance will be better. The song is definitely better.

    Will a Grammy be too much too soon?

    ^^A Grammy without an LP is probably too much too soon, seeing as how it only sets him up for a fall-off.

    ^^^^

    probably, if a rookies going to win it I’d rather see Cudi do it, Day ‘N Night was a bigger song

  18. Shooter Says:

    not to mention Cudi actually dropped an album…

  19. AmpGeez a.k.a. Smoke Greene Says:

    probably, if a rookies going to win it I’d rather see Cudi do it, Day ‘N Night was a bigger song
    ===========================
    Bigger then “Best I Ever Had” & “Successful”?

    I don’t know about that.

  20. de la swole Says:

    cudi won’t win a grammy, cuz he punched that fan and he’s a cry baby. let drake get those he’s the only stable rookie…he makes those other dudes look like amatuers

  21. Snoop Bloggy Blog Says:

    History in the making. I need to be apart of this!

  22. STandOut FT Says:

    Em is still hungry I respect the fact he took time to do this for real.

  23. justin Says:

    I’m proud of drake damn I’m really proud of dude he came along way . God does amazing things for people.his story seems unreal

  24. Danielson a.k.a. My Blog Game Proper™ Says:

    of course its way too early and too much for Drake to win a grammy and shits in the face of artists like CuDi who have had smash singles and actually released an LP. It may not have been as big as ‘Best I Ever Had’ or ‘Successful’ but I just think winning everything before you’ve released an album will take the hunger and therefore, imo, the key element to a successful debut album.

    don’t get me wrong though, Drake > CuDi. I just think he’s more deserving

    ps. Charles Hamilton will probably slitting his wrists tomorrow whilst watching the awards, thinking how many more free mixtapes does he have to release until he gets a nomination for a nomination at least.

  25. Shooter Says:

    Bigger then “Best I Ever Had” & “Successful”?

    I don’t know about that
    ^^^^

    Both Day ‘N Night and Best I Ever Had were big in the U.S, but Day ‘N Night killed it internationally whereas Best I Ever had’s success was only local to U.S and Canada really

    ^^ He came a long way?? Dude has had money all his life, was on a successful tv show, and only had 2 mixtapes before SFG. It’s an amazing story still, but don’t play the underdog card.

    you (of all people) should NEVER start a sentence with the words “i flow”…

    cause you tellin lies before you even finish the thought …

    a while back, you were improving, but you done lost contact with the beat again …

    do you actually listen to the instrumental while you rap?…

    or do you just guess where the bars should start and end?

    or do you record El Feces Loco Studios? …

    “look at her, look at her” …

    ==============================================
    Oh, the song’s better. I agree with you there. But Swagger Like Us is more lyrical, it felt right when they performed there and it was very professional.

    Only reason I may watch this one is to wait for Eminem to come up with that verse that makes the other three seem smaller.

    I gotta get my hopes up for ’11, tho. T.I.’s already back recording.

    And on the whole “2010′s Drake’s year” thing … He might sell more. But ’10 is full of artist that are perfectly capable of delivering material that’ll be more solid than the kid’s album. I don’t follow 50 Cent’s philosophy, I refuse to accept that the best Rapper is the one wit’ more sells on the belt …

  60. Cluester Says:

    Honestly I don’t wanna see it if kanye isnt performing…he had the seconds best verse on there anyways.

  61. hl Says:

    Ya’ll actually watch the grammys? I could care less really.

  62. Sleep Says:

    I feel for the people of haiti and I support the cause. I agree america need to set up some make shift hospitals over here to help them. But If u ever been to a hospital it take 3 hours in the ER. If u put those haitian it there now, 3hrs will turn into 10. A country number one priority is its citizens no disrespect to our fellow haitians. The problem is that we have too many patients and no enough doctors..so like I said we need some make shift hospital set up in florida and have doctors from all around the world helping the hatians there. Problem solved, obama holla at me.

    You should check out the recent interview with Micheal Moore at the Democracy Now. He said a large nursing association were able to get like 12000 nurses willing to volunteer their services to the haitian people but the Obama administration wouldn’t hear them out. Haven’t had time to fact check this so I’m not sure how true it is, but it sounded prrtty similar to your idea.

    the grammy do suck, overall. some of it is good obvi…like sometimes they’ll have memorable performances that i’ll watch on youtube.

    but the way they pick winners is not always by the best song or artist. politics and other gay shit get in the way. so by that very fact you’re gonna have shitty results.

    grammy is not just about the music. which is why it fails

    don’t get me wrong…some of the winners do deserve their noms and awards but a lot of it is just weeetaahded
