Well it's that time of year again. That's right it's the Grammy coming on Sunday Night 2/10/13. Many Hip Hop fans feel the Grammy don't represent the culture and I would agree.

The Bold are my predictions. Now KanYe and Jay lead the All Time List of Grammy Winners and there are both up for several awards again. Hopefully the Grammy's switch it up instead of giving Jay, Ye and Eminem Grammy's like skittles. I won't be shocked if "N!ggas in Paris" or "Mercy" wins one though. I really hope NaS can pull out "Rap Album of the Year" but I hope he can finally win one. So what are you feelings or the Grammy? Should there be more Hip Hop categories? The Show is Sunday Night.
