Jay-Z and Kanye Win Another “Paris” GRAMMY – Best Rap Song

21. Niggas In Paris

Jay-Z and Kanye West won their second GRAMMY of the night during the pre-telecast for “Ni**as in Paris” for Best Rap Song. “The Mott0″ by Drake was an early favorite to win the prize, especially since Drake won the GRAMMY for Best Rap Album. ”

This is Jay-Z’s 16th GRAMMY and Mr. West is now rolling dubs with his 20th GRAMMY.

Interestingly, Best Rap Song GRAMMY nominee Snoop Dogg/Lion is 0-14 in GRAMMY wins-nominations. Out of the nominations, notable upsets include “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang” losing to Digable Planets’ “Rebirth of the Slick,” “Gin & Juice” losing to Queen Latifah’s “U.N.I.T.Y.” and “Drop It Like It’s Hot” losing to Kanye’s “Jesus Walks” for best song and The Black Eyed Peas’ “Let’s Get IT Started for duo/group.
