    DRAKE won BEST RAP ALBUM. It must really be the end of HIP HOP. Commercial shit took over. R.I.P to the culture.

  • Haley

    Drake deserved it. So fuck you all, he started from the bottom and rised up. So shut the hell up, if he didn’t deserve it, he wouldn’t have won.

    Yo the industry or the Grammy’s got it out for Nas. Life is Good is hands down the best album of 2012. @Haley Man all rappers started at the bottom. If the QB projects aint the fucking bottom I dont know what is.
