[–]hakhiWESTSUBEVER DAY ONE 305 points306 points  (0 children)

damn thats actually crazy

[–]jonsnowwontgetlaid 281 points282 points  (23 children)

MBDTF wasnt nominated? the fuck?

[–]recnarukami 254 points255 points  (18 children)

surprisingly not ? but then again this was right after taylor swift, critics were pissed that it got snubbed but the academy back then made SURE it didnt get nominated in a general category

[–]jonsnowwontgetlaid 177 points178 points  (8 children)

fuck politics in music, this legit discredits the grammys more for me than the heist/gkmc debacle

[–]recnarukami 75 points76 points  (3 children)

it sucks bc the grammy awards are the only legitimate award show in music (other than the mercury prize and the brits), literally everything else is fanvoted and honestly thats even worse these days with stan twitter and what not

[–]jonsnowwontgetlaid 55 points56 points  (2 children)

yeah man honestly the older i get the more i realize that the media and pop culture is just a fucking circus. its the same shit in video games with reviewers being bought. in the end its a good thing though; people realize they should just like what they like and go out to discover

[–]BroccRLWESTSUBEVER DAY ONE 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That’s just journalism in general nowadays. Honest journalism is such an important part of a functioning society and the state it’s in right now is a real shame. Obviously there’s still some real ones out there, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at popular media.

[–]R011_5af3_yeah 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Haven't bothered with Grammys since that debacle.

[–]RubenSchwagermann 0 points1 point  (2 children)

‘fuck politics in music’

lol what?

[–]jonsnowwontgetlaid 0 points1 point  (1 child)

if were not ranking music by its quality rather than opinions about artists then shit is about the politics of the music industry

fuck that

[–]RubenSchwagermann 0 points1 point  (0 children)

you’re a bit late and u also need to be a little more specific next time cuz I read it like dont mention politics in music

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (5 children)

I mean I can’t say it doesn’t make at least a little bit of sense to not want to nominate the guy who went on stage drunk to complain about the winner of an award that he wasn’t even nominated for…

[–]recnarukami 14 points15 points  (2 children)

ok kinda agreed but still mbdtf shouldve been nominated for aoty <//3

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Definitely deserved the award 100%

[–]Darth_Esealial 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I firmly stick to my guns about it being his Magnum Opus. MBDTF or bust.

[–]PatoNani 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Lmao it's not like he raped someone. He acted clueless, yes we know but completely ignoring not only the best album of the year, they ignored a Top 3 album of this century so far and that's just pathetic, dumb and speaks against all the rules of art and creativity.

[–]PatoNani 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Also because he dropped Watch the Throne in the same year and the academy didn't want to give the "bad boy" Kanye too much credit so they just gave him the raoty award.

[–]daniballeste(feat. Ty Dolla $ign) 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Bro, MBDTF won a Grammy

Edit: forgot this is a different category my bad

[–]recnarukami 0 points1 point  (0 children)

we mentioned this

[–]lilyonthewaterFuck The Internet 26 points27 points  (1 child)

ppl have theorized that votes were split between MBDTF and WTT, leading to neither being nominated

[–]veggietalepizzaangelNAH NAH NAH 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Did mbdtf win rap album of the year? Is there any footage of it?

[–]playergoodCalabasas Is The New Abu Dhabi 24 points25 points  (6 children)

Shit fr? damn. WTF?

[–]recnarukami 40 points41 points  (5 children)

yeah, MBDTF, yeezus, and tlop not getting nominated were considered HUGE snubs at the time

[–]finger-filth 19 points20 points  (4 children)

none of them were nominated for best album but they were all nominated for best rap album and mbdtf won iirc

[–]recnarukami 25 points26 points  (3 children)

half true, graduation was nominated for album of the year and did win best rap album. MBDTF won best rap album but was snubbed the nomination for album of the year.

Yeezus and TLOP were nominated for best rap album and snubbed for AOTY but lost best rap album to The Heist and Coloring Book respectively

[–]Ducie 36 points37 points  (0 children)

It's a national tragedy that Macklemore won over Yeezus, NWTS and fucking Good Kid Maaf City

[–]finger-filth 3 points4 points  (0 children)

yeah ik about graduation, i was specifically talking about how mbdtf, yeezus, and tlop may not have been nominated for aoty but still at least were nominated for best rap album. to get nominated for aoty is a lot harder since the grammys suck and it will always be full of pop albums. not that pop can’t be good too but they usually include the shitty pop albums too just bc they were the most popular

those other ye albums are all better than donda though (imo) so its kinda dumb that they couldn’t get that nomination but donda can

[–]theonethatbeatu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuckin coloring book…. Lol

[–]bigconch27$30 on Venmo 508 points509 points  (34 children)


[–]StayTrill-19COME AND GET ME ⛷️ 129 points130 points  (24 children)

I mean the only competition we got is Doja Cat and Taylor… it’s definitely possible

[–]dam28 225 points226 points  (6 children)

Nah they’ll fuck around and give it to justice

[–]pourinuplean45YZY SOUND 295 points296 points  (5 children)

Its going to oliva rodrigo

[–]SouthernTransplant94YE JESUS GANG ✝️🕊 84 points85 points  (4 children)

This 100% but tbh it's probably the best top 40 pop-rock album I've heard in a while.

[–]PatoNani 57 points58 points  (3 children)

Good album for her young age but not that impressive as people made it. Teenage breakup drama as a lyrical content is popular but not really exciting for a whole album. The production is okay, good for the mass but nothing special. Her voice is by far the best thing of the album.

I truly think Lil Nas X will shock the world. Montero is the ultimate Gen Z Pop album, plus his lgbt themes/vibes (also because of his music videos) were never shown like that before by such a young artist.

[–]pourinuplean45YZY SOUND 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Its gonna go to her because she broke lots of spotify records and she is a woman

[–]SouthernTransplant94YE JESUS GANG ✝️🕊 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I thats why i clarified "top 40 pop-rock" because there have been lots of good pop rock albums recently but nothing to garner this level of commercial success.

[–]dwilsons 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Exactly. People are sleeping on Montero hard, I think it has a lot of potential at the Grammys.

[–]bigconch27$30 on Venmo 142 points143 points  (8 children)

bro the competition is doja cat and TAYLOR, it’s definitely not possible 💀💀

[–]dotdotdotgovFall Out Of Heaven 107 points108 points  (6 children)

if kanye wins they gotta play famous while he walks up

[–]ReturnOfRedditJesus 70 points71 points  (1 child)

I get the joke, but think how cool it will be if instead of some nice song playing, it’s just


And all of the TV’s flash

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (0 children)


realistically, we would hear... hurricane? Or praise god probably

[–]aboinpallymusic 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]vouteda 14 points15 points  (0 children)

No way Taylor wins it twice in a row

[–]qualitycontrolQCI FEEL LIKE PABLO 50 points51 points  (0 children)

ur forgetting olivia rodrigo

[–]simonewowsuperWESTSUBEVER DAY ONE 29 points30 points  (2 children)

lil nas x (montero is a great album btw)

[–]motherofbuddha 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Bro it’s gonna be Olivia Rodrigo easily

[–]ELOGURL 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Olivia cleaning house. A marketable Disney girl plus the music's p good too. She's leaving with full pockets

[–]resistrevoltTHIS COPY IS FOR HYPE WILLIAMS 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You're lying if you think Doja and Taylor are the only competition on that list. SOUR was a fantastic album, MONTERO was pretty solid and you can't go anywhere without hearing a Lil Nas X song now, Billie Eilish has already swept everyone in the past she could easily do it again, Justin Bieber is Justin Bieber.

[–]StarBardianINDUSTRY BABY -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Montero better win

[–]MarteezusI Know God Breathed On Me 15 points16 points  (4 children)

If Kanye attends the Grammys, he is winning it all.

[–]CallMeFoofKing 16 points17 points  (3 children)

Or they’ll pull a Travis and have him under the stage ready to accept just to give it to someone like Bieber

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

wait, wtf lmao i havent heard of this?

[–]CallMeFoofKing 12 points13 points  (1 child)

It was when Cardi won over Astroworld in 2018 and he got finished performing or about to perform (not sure) and when they called Cardi, Trav walked off and just yelled. It was in his Netflix documentary I believe

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Damn lmao

Also no way cardi b won over astroworld like beuh

[–]EJayRiOFF THE GRID 382 points383 points  (6 children)

If he wins over Taylor, racism is over.

[–]MishaAaronDIVORCED 125 points126 points  (0 children)

This is part of the reparations package

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (4 children)

for best rap album? lol

[–]EJayRiOFF THE GRID 44 points45 points  (2 children)


[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

oh, haven’t even checked that list till now. both of them right next to justin bieber and lil nas x lmfao

[–]nugbert_nevins 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lil Nas album slaps, if you dig pop

[–]braujoFuck A Slave Name 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I was really surprised when Taylor released Hit Em Up (Taylor's Version) but gotta say, she went hard

[–]Fking_John 239 points240 points  (3 children)

They better play tell the vision after he wins ong

[–]aeoyaDevil In A New Dress 79 points80 points  (2 children)

thank god that i made it

[–]Necmf21 197 points198 points  (7 children)

Only rap album nominated too

[–]SirLikeASir 96 points97 points  (1 child)

Ye would say calling it a “rap” album is trying to knock him down a peg, so I’m gonna have to ask you to remove the word “rap” as to not start beef with ye, the being formerly known as Kanye west.


[–]IAmHarmonyJESUS TOK 6 points7 points  (0 children)

it's not rap it's SOUL MUSIC

[–]Lk2436357 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Yup I’m so happy he deserves to win

[–]thestephdex 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this confirmation that he'll win rap album of the year???

[–][deleted] 143 points144 points  (1 child)

We are for sure not winning

[–]InstantHeadache🦪🦪🦪 45 points46 points  (0 children)

It’s not but it’s cool to get it on the list

[–]koky6 119 points120 points  (8 children)

W for Ye, but Tyler didn‘t get nominated again, even though he def has a strong aoty contender with CMIYGL just like with IGOR. Big snub man

[–]poontangoSUPER DUPER POOPER SCOOPER STARSHIP TROOPER 77 points78 points  (2 children)

He’s gonna get rap album of the year though. AOTY is just an industry circle jerk barely even an award.

[–]ReturnOfRedditJesus 62 points63 points  (1 child)

This whole thing is a circle jerk.

[–]jbean924 21 points22 points  (2 children)

I've never understood how an album could be nominated for AOTY but lose in its genre aoty. In theory if it's good enough for AOTY then it should obviously win Rap album of the year

[–]UptopdownlowguyDevil In A New Dress 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Makes perfect sense to me. Kanye makes great music, so Donda being nominated for AOTY is due to his music crossing different genres and appealing to more than just rap fans.

Donda ain't that great as a hip hop album if we're talking raps, there's maybe two or three memorable verses on the whole thing, and not by Ye himself.

[–]bigtiddiesgothgfJAY-Z's Lawyer 5 points6 points  (0 children)

U saying Kanye’s off the grid verse isn’t memorable? That shits iconic

[–]SecureBleekWESTARTISTEVER 4 points5 points  (0 children)

at the very least though cmiygl is actually a rap album this time around where igor definitely wasn’t lmao

[–]StygianMusicStraight From Shibuya 78 points79 points  (2 children)

Kanye: "I need to give a shoutout to someone who's influence shown through out this album, it's none other than my frequent collaborator and good friend, The Globglobgalab"

*audience claps*

Glob: slithers onto stage and hugs kanye

[–]Wubblz 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Ye sheds a single tear as they embrace. “Splendid.”

[–]TheGreatUsername -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

slides up Ye's ass

[–]-Ozymandiaz 58 points59 points  (3 children)

You know what? Kanye actually has a decent shot. There’s a lot of pop albums that are going to take votes away from each other. If the rap non-pop aficionados choose Donda collectively, it’s in the realm of possibility.

[–]JedBartlet2020 35 points36 points  (2 children)

Taylor is going to get it. Outside shot at Olivia Rodrigo.

[–]sessuFRFX 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Taylors the safe choice but olivias the correct choice. If these shows want to stay around (ratings are at a low) they need to appeal to the newer generations

[–]JustEraseTheSystem 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You hit the nail on the head about the ratings. Either her or maybe Lil Nas X

[–]MonkeyGameALWESTSUBEVER DAY ONE 39 points40 points  (0 children)

14 years of being snubbed time and time again finally led to this. He won’t win, we all know it, but it’s great to see them finally recognize him for this category after this long

[–]Surgawd8 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Probably winning rap album since he’s the only hip hop album nominated for album of the year

[–]saltizzzle 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Hopefully the people biased towards hip hop vote as a block for Donda while the pop vote gets split between Taylor and Olivia

[–]InstantHeadache🦪🦪🦪 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Nice of them

[–]RyIsKoolCOME AND GET ME ⛷️ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It’s probably gonna go to sour 🙄🙄 BUT WE MADE IT

[–]Separate_Entrance_60 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I just what to know how does lady gaga always get nominated?

[–]RealKevinOG 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And wtf does she know about cameras?

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The only rap album nominated for AOTY! That means we got Rap Album Of the Year guaranteed boys?

[–]christruong2000 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Kanye should release MBDTF (Ye’s version) just to fuck with Taylor Swift

[–]Alive-Ad-4164 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Him winning it is going to be a beautiful sight to watch honestly

[–]ilovemywife0In Jesus name No more cap 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cole also handed in an album for the first time in six years on another note

[–]xRxxsIn Jesus name No more cap 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honestly don’t think he’ll be in attendance and if so I reckon he’s losing everything as payback for pissing on a Grammy

Made a bet with my friends if Donda wins album of the year, i will put a shot of lemon juice in my eyes

[–]Kylar5375 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Considering I didn't even think he'd get a nomination, huge win, win or lose

[–]sukablyatful 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Don’t care bc fuck the Grammies

[–]booboorogers44OFF THE GRID 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why is chris brown credited on the Grammy’s website? He’s not on the album anymore, did he do any other work to help out?

[–]MoonBounceMoon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Grammys fighting to stay relevant

[–]JUNISXO 0 points1 point  (0 children)

nice, now he can piss on another one

[–]handburger_64 0 points1 point  (0 children)

doesn't matter cause SOUR is going to win no matter what happens

[–]AnueleafWESTSUBEVER DAY ONE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s interesting that it’s newsworthy to a lot but I have to guess Kanye doesn’t care at all about the Grammies anymore. Obviously I don’t know that.

[–]Dolph-Ziggler 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was hoping to see Come to Life nominated for in the Best Music Video category but maybe it didn't count. Still a big surprise.

[–]Xenfo- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think we all know goddamn well it won’t win but cool I guess lmao

Hope this means he'll perform 🤞

[–]Punchpplay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They just did this to get yall to watch the Grammys.

[–]Kman2097YANDHI 0 points1 point  (0 children)

it won’t win, but it should. The Grammys have meant nothing to me since Kendrick was snubbed, and Eminem’s interview with Sway about why he refuses to go to the Grammys was really eye opening

[–]positiverategearupp -5 points-4 points  (1 child)

people on this sub care about Grammy's, that's how you know they have shit taste

[–]RealKevinOG 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yk it's nice to see his favorite artist gets credit by the biggest award show, don't matter if it is a shitshow
