XXL Predicts The Grammys


It’s Grammy season again, and that means it’s time to argue about which artist the shady Grammy committees will select to go down in history this year, and which artists will fade into obscurity. Or at least, that’s what they’d like us to believe; then again, until Nas wins a Grammy, this whole enterprise will always be a little suspect. But one of the things the hip-hop community likes the most is a good debate, and the hip-hop categories of this year’s awards serve up plenty of fodder for that. How many trophies will Drake take home? Will Kanye get shut out completely? Will Justin Timberlake’s incredible award streak of 2013 deliver another Grammy for Jay Z? Does Kendrick Lamar have a shot at Album Of The Year? And, most divisively, who will take home Best Rap Album?

With Music’s Biggest Night only two days away, the XXL staff delivers our picks for who we think will take home the hip-hop Grammys, and we also weigh in on Album Of The Year and Best New Artist as well. We made it. —XXL Staff
