Hip Hop took some wins as Old Town Road (Lil Nas x Billy Ray Cyrus) took Best Pop Duo, the late Nipsey Hussle conquered Best Rap performance for Best Rap Performance with the award being accepted by his wife Lauren London and grandmother. DJ Khaled and John legend performed a tribute to Nipsey Hussle for their song Higher with surprise appearances from Meek Mill and YG.
One of the night's most memorable moments was J.Cole winning his first songwriter's award for his feature with 21 Savage. However one question always comes to mind, why is there such discrimination in the voting process for the Grammys according to Variety tyler stated “I’m half and half on it,” he said. “On the one side I am very grateful that what I made can be acknowledged in a world like this… but it sucks that whenever we, and I mean guys that look like me, do anything that’s genre-bending or anything, they always put it in rap or urban category.” he continues “And I don’t like that ‘urban’ word,” he added. “It’s just a politically correct way to say the n-word, to me. So when I hear that, I’m just like, why can’t we just be in pop? So I felt like — half of me feels like the rap nomination was a backhanded compliment.”
What did you think of the Grammys? Does Tyler the Creator have a point?
