2010 Hip Hop Grammy Nominations

The 2010 Grammy nominees have been announced and in the hip hop categories, you know the one’s we care about, some pretty crazy stuff is going down. Take for instance, Flo Rida being nominated for best rap album or Fabolous and Jay-Z for “Money Goes, Honey Stay” or Bestie Boys and Nas for “Too Many Rappers”.

  1. lol the album nominations seem pretty uninteresting…

    Best Rap Solo Performance: hope dat drake can scoop this one

    Best Rap Song: def “run this town” or “DOA”

    Best Rap Performance By a Duo or Group: LOL

    Best Rap/Sung Collaboration: “run this town” again i’d say

  2. What the hell is with the Best Rap Album catagory. Flo-Rida? They just made this easy for Eminem to win this. There was so many other albums that came out this year that could of made the catagory: Rick Ross DEEPER THAN RAP, Jadakiss THE LAST KISS, Fabolous LOSO’S WAY, Ludacris THEATRE OF THE MIND, Kanye West 808S & HEARTBREAKS, Young Jeezy THE RECESSION, Busta Rhymes BACK ON MY B.S. People say that Flo Rida is on there beacuse he was popular on the radio, but why is Mos Def, Q-Tip and Common on there then? People say they are good rappers, then why is Flo Rida on there? I say the catagory should be organized by popularity, sales, and depth.

  3. Why should Q Tip and Mos Def be up there? Danm man……. go find your roots with hiphop… that just killed me that you said that…
