61st Annual Grammy Award Predictions, Well Rap Predictions

Music’s biggest night is here! Tonight the 61st Annual Grammy Awards is back in Los Angeles and will be hosted by singer and fifteen-time Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys. In addition to the hot nominee’s we anticipate even hotter performances. Artists from every genre ranging from Cardi B, Yolanda Adams, Shawn Mendes, and The Red Hot Chilli Peppers will take center stage. The performances don’t stop there, musical legend and style icon Diana Ross will also grace us with her presence.
Now it’s time to talk predictions, frankly, I’m here to talk Rap predictions and anything to do with Rap. It is widely known that the Hip-Hop community and The Recording Academy have long been at odds over the lack of recognition. Battles dating back to the 89′ boycott for not televising the Rap award. It’s been 30 years since that infamous boycott and in 30 years Hip-Hop has continued to transcend music and popular culture. Tonight we’ll see if The Grammy’s finally get it right.
