I don’t care about the Grammys. The Grammys have rarely ever spoken for my views/taste in hip-hop. And I don’t want to speak for others, but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t speak to most hip-hop fans’ views of hip-hop music.
Examples of Grammy BULLSHIT: Nas has never won a Grammy. Big Pun didn’t win a Grammy for “Capital Punishment”. Puff Daddy’s “No Way Out” album won album of the year over Biggie’s “Life After Death” and “Wu-Tang Forever”. Ja Rule’s “Pain Is Love” got a nomination for album of the year in 2001 over Nas’s “Stillmatic”. Born Sinner aint even nominated for album of the year this year, not that it was a classic or anything but it’s doper than most of the albums in that category in my opinion.
Sometimes their choice of winners correlates with mine, sometimes they don’t. The Grammys don’t mean shit to me at the end of the day. I don’t get why they still mean something for a lot of hip-hop fans/performers.
