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

    Best Rap Solo Performance – Jay-Z – “D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)”
    ==============================================
    Bullshit.

  17. C. Dufflebags Says:

    I’m almost a Stan but Mos Def should’ve gotten that award for The Ecstatic. Young Joe Camel winning two awards? Negro please.

    Max Beezly should’ve gotten an award for lifetime achievement.

  18. Furiou$tylez aka I cant be godbody smoking these Newports Says:

  25. verses Says:

    Really dissapointed that FloRida didnt win.

    *sarcasm but not at the same time*

  26. Eastern_Digital aka Nahright's Fantasy Football champ Says:

    Max Beezly should’ve gotten an award for lifetime achievement.

    ^^^
    Absolutely.

  27. verses Says:

    disappointed > dissapointed

  28. ClarenceD Says:

    Yea, “Crack a Bottle” is just not a good song… whatsoever…

  29. Jz Says:

    Honestly feel bad for Mos or Q-Tip not winning best rap album. Relapse was absolute trash. I sincerely despise the Grammy people…

  30. LeBarracuda Says:

    Yall know Mos shouldve took it for best album. Em’s my boy and all, but The Ecstatic was the best. Period

  31. Shooter Says:

    Ciara loooked kinda goood

  32. verses Says:

    Best Urban/Alternative Performance
    India.Arie & Dobet Gnahore – “Pearls”

    ^^^^^

    “The people said I look sharp on TV,
    at the grammys though they tried to India Arie me,
    got back stage and i bumped into Stevie,
    He said no matter what the people gonna see me”

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

    Best Urban/Alternative Performance
    India.Arie & Dobet Gnahore – “Pearls”
    ==========================
    Who?

    I’ve never heard this song and I don’t think I care to.

  34. hl Says:

    Ecstatic should have won
    ______________________________

    either that or the qtip album. both were mad ill/solid in comparison to the relapse.

    —-

    Cosign. Mos and Q-tip’s album were so much better than the others nominated. Relapse and UMC were terrible. I can only assume Flo-Rida was trash. DTR, OBFCL2, and even BP3 would have been better choices.

  35. 7v5a7 Says:

    Thanks Nah Right, I can now focus on Animation Domination on Fox…..at least 50 can stop bitching about not having a grammy (of course riding Em & Dre coattails as usual)..FAIL

  36. hl Says:

    Rihanna gonna be in rehab next year. It was written.

  37. Shooter Says:

    *prays Kanye shows up and does something stupid for Rap music*

  38. CR1130 Says:

    Worst… Grammys… Ever!! I think they are picking winners by droppin names in a hat and shakin it up at this point.

  39. Shooter Says:

    Rihanna gonna be in rehab next year. It was written.
    ^^

    lol this.

    she looked dogly on the red carpet too

  40. hl Says:

    *prays Kanye shows up and does something stupid for Rap music*

    —–

    He should take Em’s award away and give it to Mos.

  41. CR1130 Says:

    My man just dropped Lady Gaga in the fire. I might actually watch this jawn.

  42. de la swole Says:

    Not bad at all. Those are some good picks

  43. FUPM618 Says:

    Every album in the best rap category (except Florida don’t listen to him) was better than em’s joint.

  44. Yung Hopp Says:

    Best Rap Song, according to the website, it’s a lyrical category. Dead And Gone has a deeper, stronger, better, more important and wiser message.

  45. CR1130 Says:

    Every album in the best rap category (except Florida don’t listen to him) was better than em’s joint.

    bullshit

    Take a shower and brush your teeth before you start your day hatin

  48. COIS Says:

    if i could afford to bet even a dolla, i bet somone will write an article/youtube post about how the fact that kanye, jay-z, and rihanna were all winners has to do with some shit about jay-z and the illuminatti.

  49. verses Says:

    ^^^^^^^^^^^

    Ive had hip to the game on repeat since i downloaded that….

  50. Rocky Says:

    Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (Not yet announced.)
    Beyoncé & Kanye West – “Ego”
    Keri Hilson, Kanye West & Ne-Yo – “Knock You Down”
    Jay-Z, Rihanna & Kanye West – “Run This Town”
    T.I. & Justin Timberlake – “Dead And Gone”

    The Lonely Island & T-Pain – “I’m On A Boat” – This proves that the grammys don’t give two shits about rap/hip-hop.

  51. Eastern_Digital aka Nahright's Fantasy Football champ Says:

    fuck is wrong with all these lurkers bein aggy about the Grammy Awards? It is common knowledge that they dont give out the awards based on quality. Get a grip.

  55. Felipe Says:

    BULLSHIT Grammy politics

    the saddest thing is that industry professionals vote in the categories of their expertise

    Imagine a Grammys in which these professionals vote based on quality.
    But that would be ridiculous. Since when were awards supposed to be given to deserving recipients?

  73. Teddy Says:

  74. nystacks Says:

    if relapse didnt have We Made You it would be a classic album true story i didnt rocc with that Insane song either but it got critical acclaim for some reason people who listen to lyrics and interpret them for a profession said it was a good song and said might have been the best one on that album

  75. PHENOMENON Says:

    The Ecstatic/The Renaissance > ________________.

    I think Em rhymes in insane can be compared when Pac told everybody his Moms was a Cracchead like its some shit you suppse to keep to yoself and you gotta appreciate an artist giving you honesty unlike some Niggas that lie about being a CO then says he is then Says He not and be Compared to one of the realest rappers for it
