Sunday, Feb. 10 The 2019 Grammy Awards ceremony was the hottest topic around the world. At the 61st Annual Grammy Awards hip hop played a big role on the stage with so many nominations among the categories.
The event in Los Angeles was preceded by red carpet walk and stacked up plenty of rap artists, that was nominated for the prestigious prize.
The presence of the hip hop genre was not only in the Rap categories, even better, hip hop artist won the Song of the year nominee and that’s Childish Gambino – “This Is America”. Gambino took 3 awards all in all including best rap video and best rap/ slug performance.
Now back to the hip hop nominations. Cardi B, showed up to the ceremony in a spectacular outfit, with Offset on her side and soon after they were kissing on the red carpet, “Money” artist won the “Best rap album” category with her “Invasion Of Privecy”.
2019 seems to be a “Making history” year for Cardi, first she was the first female artist to perform at AVN Awards ever, now with this prize she became the first female rapper to get on top of “Best rap album”. Cardi’s speech was emotional and with the regular thanks to everyone who supported her.
In the “Best rap performance” category the outcome was interesting, by setting 2 songs in 1st place. Future Feat. Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock with their King’s Dead tied up with Andersoon .Paak’s Bubblin.
And… the “Best rap song” goes to Drake – God’s Plan. Champagne papi has won best rap song, in very hard competition with one of the best tracks that we heard in the past year.
The curious fact is that when Drake was on the stage speaking out his mind, with the gramophone in his hand, right after the moment he addressed the artists claiming that the love of the fans is already a win and if they have it, they don’t need such award the live session was interrupted by commercials in the middle of his speech. On purpose or not, we are about to find out very soon.
