Grammy Award winners


This is a huge night, not only for music as a whole, but for rap, as Kendrick Lamar has become the first hip-hop artist to earn 11 nominations for a single night, besting Eminem’s previous record. Unfortunately, the rap awards will not be televised, but luckily, Kendrick is also nominated for Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, and more. Others who are up for Grammys include Drake, The Weeknd, Nicki Minaj, ASAP Rocky, Fetty Wap, J. Cole, and Kanye West.
