Does anyone else think that it is unfair that Jay-Z has 14 Grammys but Nas has None?

Even though many people argue over who is the better MC everybody agrees that they are both easily in the Legend bracket..

Jay-Z has more Grammys (14) than Nas has albums (13) and even though Jay has done better commercially, does anybody else think its unfair that over 20 years Nas has not won a Grammy award?

Classics or not Nas has albums and tracks that are easily Grammy worthy (remembering that Carter 3 won album of the year) and even though I prefer Jay's music, I think it's on some bullshit that Nas hasn't won one yet...

Before I let all you reply about it have a look at these pictures and then tell me what you think....

  • No. Nas doesn't run the same race as JayZ. JayZ is in the Wayne, Drake, Eminem, Ludacris race. He makes music for the sake of making money and increasing his brand.

    In comparison, Nas makes music for the sake of making good music. He stays true to the art form by choice, and he knows the results of making pro-black, grown people music. He knows he's not going to sell as much as the artist who rides the "what's hot now" wave, so you can't feel sorry for him when he doesn't get the level of commercial success that the guys who are trying to get commercial success get.

    Put Nas in the KRS-One, Lupe, Mos Def, Black Thought, Wu-Tang category. Not the major label, attention seeking list.


    end thread.

    It's not unfair. It's sad though.

    Speaks volumes on this generation of hip hop fans when artistic music is valued less than the flavor of the week.

    I would be nice to see Nasty Nas win a Grammy since it's so revered and all.. but I don't take the Grammys serious at all..

    Lollipop by Lil Wayne won a Grammy in 2009.. so no, I don't think it's unfair..

    Grammy's are a huge popularity contest.
  • LV_DonLV_Don Posts: 350 ✭✭✭✭✭
    why not just be mad that Nas doesnt have a grammy. That fact has absolutely nothing to do with Jay-Z. Forcing a comparison where there isnt one

    Just bringing up another great lyricist who has had over two decades in the game.....if DOA's contradicting ass can win a Grammy than any of Nas' tracks should

    Grammy's aren't really for real rappers - they're for pop artists
    That's why Eminem cleans up at the grammy's every year

    this


    and really does this shit matter.


    we should make a thread that is


    Why does Nas have a classic(s) album(s) and Jay Z has none ?

    thats really what we really should be talking about beinga hip hop site.
