For example, there are a handful of artists who people believe got snubbed, including The Weeknd who received zero nods for his Billboard 200 No. 1 album After Hours and zero nods for any of the singles from the project — “Heartless,” “Blinding Lights,” “In Your Eyes,” and “Save Your Tears.”
Lil Baby fans are also lashing out after his album My Turn failed to get a nomination for Album of the Year, although his track “The Bigger Picture” picked up a nod in multiple categories, including Best Rap Song.
But let’s talk about what did get nominated, specifically in the Best Rap Album category. Some of the nominees came as a surprise to rap fans, especially D Smoke whose Black Habits project was included alongside Royce Da 5’9’s The Allegory, Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist’s Alfredo,Jay Electronica’s A Written Testimony and Nas’ King’s Disease.
