2018 GRAMMY Awards Wrap Up

Hip-Hop is snubbed again.

The 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards took place last night (January 28) at Madison Square Garden in New York for the first time in 15 years.

Hip-Hop and R&B were represented well with all the nominations that were received;  with JAY-Z (8), Kendrick Lamar (7), Bruno Mars (6) and first time nominee, SZA (5), leading the way. The results however didn’t match up so well with the number of nominations. JAY-Z and SZA shockingly did not take home any accolades, but Hov was awarded with the Salute To Industry Icons Award. Kendrick and Bruno pretty much cleaned up the GRAMMYs with 5 and 6 awards, respectively.

I believed Hip-Hop would get the biggest win of the night with the Album Of The Year award, I honestly thought Kendrick would end the 14-year drought. I should’ve known better…
