Best Rap Solo Performance

Beautiful

Eminem

Track from: Relapse

[Aftermath/Interscope Records]

This song is dope. From the 1st listen, this was easily one of my top 3 favorites off the album and still is. I was happy 2 hear it was gonna be the 2nd single.

D.O.A. (Death Of Auto-Tune)

Jay-Z

[Roc Nation]

I'm not a huge Jay-Z fan. I liked when he was new and then I liked a handful of singles. It wasn't until Kingdom Come that I started really liking him more. When I saw him performe this song on TV I thought it was dope. I don't want it 2 win, but i like it alot.

Casa Bey

Mos Def

Track from: The Ecstatic

[Downtown Records]

I don't remember this getting mainstream success but the song is dope. I'd like this to win or "Beautiful."

Best Rap/Sung Collaboration

Ego

Beyoncé & Kanye West

[Music World Music/Columbia]

This song is average at best. I do like it. Average at best means it was better than most of the I Am...Sasha Fierce album.

Knock You Down

Keri Hilson, Kanye West & Ne-Yo

Track from: In A Perfect World...

[MMG/Zone 4/Interscope Records]

Totally mainstream danceable R-N-B pop...but I like this song.

Run This Town

Jay-Z, Rihanna & Kanye West

[Roc Nation]

I like Rihanna's part. It gives energy over top the dope beat.

I'm On A Boat

The Lonely Island & T-Pain

Track from: Incredibad

[universal Republic Records]

Are they serious? Are they freaking serious?

Dead And Gone

T.I. & Justin Timberlake

Track from: Paper Trail

[Grand Hustle/Atlantic]

Like JT's part...like the beat...like the message...but not T.I. or his delivery or flow.

Best Rap Song

Dead And Gone

C. Harris, R. Tadross & J. Timberlake, songwriters (T.I. & Justin Timberlake)

In recent years TI's actually been one of the better mainstream rappers, if Q-Tip, Mos Def, or Common don't win anything I wouldn't mind if he won something, and yes I agree that DOA and Run This Town are overrated singles just mostly everything Jay-Z released in the last 10 years beside the Blueprint and Black Album eras, Jay-Z is a talented rapper but he's not the rap savior that people make him out to be

While artists such as 50 Cent, Eminem and Jay Z were celebrating their Grammy wins at Sunday's awards ceremony, some artists were still ecstatic to be in such an arena, but took note of Hip Hop being snubbed by the show.

As acts such as Taylor Swift and Beyonce were able to receive their awards and deliver their acceptance speeches, awards given for the majority of Hip Hop acts were more of an event held behind the scenes as none of the footage was actually aired.

Becoming infamous for his work on Twitter, Fabolous wrote about his experience during the awards, but posed a question that arose as the show carried on throughout the night.

“At the Grammys.. Thanx 2 everyone who supported me & Loso's Way.. Wish me luck 2 bring home this grammy 2nite!! Why don't the Hip hop/rap catorgies get televised?? We (hiphop) are a big part of music 2day, even in mainstream America..”

He also admitted to never hearing Eminem's single “Crack A Bottle”, a track which Fab ended up losing to that night.

Q-Tip, who was also up for an award, but ended up losing, voiced his opinion on how Hip Hop wasn't given it's just due that night showing an overall lack of respect for the art form by mainstream America.

“Y were none of the hiphop categories on t.v. For grammys? RT @edlew: Wow! Comedy category gets airtime but NO F*CKING love for Hip Hop. This is some bullsh*t. RT @ms_shai: Shout out to Jamie and T-Pain for kickin off Black History Month with two costumed representations of difficult era's for us.”

Joe Budden stated it simply when he spoke about artists' albums being released on Def Jam. If your name is not Kanye West, Jay Z, Young Jeezy or other high profile names that have turned the mainstream in their favor, they are not concerned about you.

Granted yes, the genre might be generating the most buzz for the music industry, but at the end of the day, the corporate machine is out to get what they need and throw the remains away once they are finished with it.

Yeah well the Grammy's over recent years have been a reflection of the direction of how the music industry's been fading, I was more into the NFL Pro Bowl that was on TV at the same time on Sunday night
