    @Diego, His album couldn’t be nominated for a Grammy because in order for it to have been nominated it had to have been released before September of this year, so in the 2014 Grammy show he will have a nomination.

    He is sooo talented. So happy for his success and album release this year.

    Putting out one of the best albums of the year speaks on its own. Unfortunately, no one can be bothered to spare ten bucks for music. It’s an issue when you’re like Nicki, do nothing but run your mouth, flop, and make a shitty album.
