Kanye West’s Grammys: By The Numbers

The 54th annual Grammy Awards are set to go down this Sunday (February 12), and, as expected, Kanye West is up for quite a few trophies this go-round—seven to be exact.

The Chi-Town talent has an awe-inspiring history with the ceremony. Ever since dropping his debut album, The College Dropout, in 2004, Mr. West has been a mainstay at the event, amassing a ridiculous amount of the golden gramophones.

People usually get caught up in Yeezy’s less than stellar track record at said awards shows, but when it comes to the stats, the man responsible for the boastful track, “Grammy Family,” isn’t playing when it comes to his accolades. He is the one to beat. As his partner in rhyme, Jay-Z, famously said, “Men lie, women lie, numbers don’t.”

With that being said, XXL is proud to present, “Kanye’s Grammy By The Numbers.” That shit cray!—XXL Staff (@xxlstaff)

    No big winners in hip hop at grammy’s this year. Rap is over. Just like the rise and fall of hair metal/rock in the 80′s, (poison,warrant). We are seeing rap die. That’s because it’s trend music. A fad music that really should have died 10 years ago. Pack up your samplers, laptops, and sequencers, real musicians are coming back…. And if you don’t know now ya know nigga……
