    *shrugs* the grammys are a popularity contest, it would be nice for him to win one...I'm sure it'll mean something to HIM but to me as a Nas fan it doesn't matter that much. Its not going to validate anything.


    I expect Kanye & Drake them types to actually win...they always win.

    I'm cheering for Nas, I think it's crazy he has never won one..that being said, I think he'll come up short again..

    His best chance is winning with Amy Winehouse imo..who knows, maybe they'll throw him a pity one..

    Biggie Grammy Nods:

    Big Poppa (Lost to Gangster's Paradise)
    Hypnotize (Lost To Men In Black)
    Mo money, Mo Problems (Lost To Missing You)
    Life After Death (Lost To No Way Out)


    Tupac Grammy Nods

    Dear Mamma (Lost To Gangster's Paradise)
    Me Against The World (Lost To Poverty's Paradise, Naughty By Nature)
    All Eyes On Me (Lost To The Score, Fuguees)
    How Do You Want It (Lost To Hey Lover)
    California Love (Lost To Crossroads)
    Changes (Lost To My Name Is)


    ZERO WINS. Tell me why Pac and Big didn't get one Grammy? Interesting Grammy Fact. Biggie and Tupac both got their 1st nominations in the same catagory but lost to Coolio's Gangster's Paradise.

    To be fair though....Gangster's Paradise is Coolio's best song. He wasn't gonna get anymore of those songs in is career lol

    The roots winning album of the yr maybe nas idk but for sure he ain't winning vs ye n hov n yeah if gmkc was eligible the way critics n fans latched on to that album no way anyone would've stood a chance

    Damn @ drake only being in the 3-4 years and having almost as many noms as snoop and nas though. They've been in the game like 20 years.

    Being of Jewish heritage has it's privileges.

    As soon as everyone realizes that's part of the reason he gets so much hype...

    The only thing him being Jewish has done was it allowed him to bring his own unique perspective to the game.

    lol yall kno Drake taking home best rap album! in hip hop the award goes to the most popular and mainstream success, but as i notice in other genre's the unknown wins way more than hip hop

    lol what has he rapped about that is strictly from a jewish perspective? I can't think of anything he's said that made me say "damn...only a jewish rapper could rap about that"

    Even after being snubbed all these years, I think the award still means a lot to Nas. He deserves to be respected on the highest level.
  • FlashHexFlashHex Posts: 138 ✭✭
    Yeah winning a Grammy is prestigious in the sense of being a musician, but speaking for Hip-Hop they usually don't get it right so when cats get snubbed it's like ehhh whatever. But back to Nas if he comes up short I don't think we'll look back on his career, frown, and say "He's great but he didn't win a Grammy".

    That's true. Nas doesn't need a Grammy. He's one of the greatest no matter what. I'm sure he'll appreciate winning though.
