Day 85, feeling great and what do ya know? I’m feeling even greater after discovering that two of my favorite emcees, who’d I would never have imagined being Grammy Nominees, can actually officially list and identify themselves as “Grammy Nominated” artists. I mean, it only took 20 years or so, geeesh! But, as I always mention, a Grammy is NOT a validation of one’s true talent and contribution to music, but more so just a recognition, a HIGH recognition and acknowledgement of their craft.
No, not Kanye. No, not Nas either. No disrespect, but give the Gods some space to shine, KRS and Rakim!! 50th Grammy Awards in 2008, the song “Classic” was nominated for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. AWESOME. But it lost out to Common and Kanye West for – “Southside”.
Enjoy your weekend.
BTW, a might shout out to Kelly Showard! word! The Chase is still on.
