Do the Grammys ignore hip-hop artists for major awards?
The Grammys are becoming increasingly more diverse in nominees across genres. Just look at who's nominated for Album of the Year last year:
"Lemonade" by Beyoncé
"Views" by Drake
"A Sailor's Guide to Earth" by Sturgill Simpson
"Purpose" by Justin Bieber
"25" by Adele
The Grammys can only nominate five albums a year for the big prize. And this year, nominees are dominated by hip-hop. Jay Z's "4:44," Childish Gambino's "Awaken, My Love," Kendrick Lamar's "Damn," and Bruno Mar's "24K Magic" are all nominated. The nominees for Album of the Year are more diverse than ever. This is a good step in the right direction. The Grammys couldn't deny the best of 2017 was hip hop!
