The Grammy's Get BLACK!

Social media is going bananas after the nominees have been released and it turns out to be mighty black. The 2018 Grammy nominations come at a surprise when it shows that its been dominated by Rap/Hip-Hop and R&B artists. The two biggest names in Rap turns out to be the most nominated appearing in over 7-8 categories. Jay-z is leading with 8 nominations while Kendrick Lamar is sitting at 7 . Both rappers who are deemed as GOATs are in the same category for Best Rap Album and Album of the year. Being that in the past the Grammys have been looked at as being bias and showing no diversity, these two artist having this many nominations is a proud moment, and proves that Rap/Hip-Hop had a pretty great year. Regardless of who wins, I think the two power rappers will be each others biggest advocate.

Moving on let's not forget Hip-Hop and R&B and its leading artist. We have Bruno Mars who has been winning an award on EVERY award show he's been nominated in this year, he is leading with 6 Grammy nominations. Then we have SZA, who is well deserved of these nominations. She just debuted her first album CTRL and got 5 nominations. I will say as music lovers and all things that Vibe Different the proudest nomination for The Rap Hippies goes to Rapsody. As one of the most slept on female rap artist, it felt damn good to see her sitting on the list for Best Rap Album along side the GOATS mentioned above.

This year the Grammys will be quite different. There are of course some haters who don't agree at all. But in the mist of all the negativity towards our power black artist in the music world this is a moment we should all be proud of. Believe it or not, this is the FIRST time in 19 years the Grammys album category has no white men nominated. Lets give black excellence a round of applause for breaking barriers.
