Jay Z Leads Grammy Nominations

Jay Z

All hail Hov. Jay Z leads the nominations for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.

The Roc Nation mogul was nominated nine times this year in categories including Best Rap Album for Magna Carta…Holy Grail and Best Rap Song for “Holy Grail.”

Kendrick Lamar, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis follow with seven, while Drake and Daft Punk score five nods. Bruno Mars, Lorde, and Taylor Swift pick up four apiece.

“Very surreal moment. It’s like we’re not supposed to be here, but we’re here,” said Macklemore, who was nominated in the coveted Album of the Year and Song of the Year categories.

Robin Thicke was humbled by his three nominations including Record of the Year for “Blurred Lines.” “What an incredible honor, thank you to the Grammy committee for the nomination,” he tweeted. “This is the icing on the cake for this year.”

The nominations were announced during “The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live!!” special at Nokia Theatre L.A. LIVE on Friday.

    Tina Reply:

    @Wow, Yes, Nicki Minaj didn’t get a nomination this year or
    last year which is disappointing to her fans. Yet she has won 3 Billboard awards, A People choice awards, multiple BMI awards/honors & those are only a few of many won in 2013.
    Nicki may even perform & release a new single around Grammy time……

    But get ready for 2014……..
    Because Nicki’s is about too shut the world of rap down & we should assume that her third album will be the her greatest due too her low profile. So this time next year expect greatness.

    [Reply]

    Nicki Minaj Reply:

    @Wow, I hope you pay as much attention to her in 2014 as much as you did in 2013 because then she’s really gonna give you something to talk about. The features and the re-up that’s nothing. An since when does re-releases get nominated? I don’t see I Am… Sasha Firrce an it’s 44000 re-releases nominated Everytime.

    Jonathan Reply:

    @Wow, While you’re being a facetious bastard, you all might not want to put your foot in your mouths, yeah this is her 2nd year not getting nominated, but the way I see it, is everything happens in due time. Every time her haters go popping off at the mouth, thinking they’ve accomplished something by putting her down, she ALWAYS rises to the occasion. Nicki Minaj is GREAT, and b/c she is great, you all literally pray for her down falls b/c you all fear her uprisings but Minaj is solidified, her name and career will be one for the books, so while Lil’Kim and other females rappers fan bases some how take content in her not being nominated, you all might need to pray harder for her downfall b/c once January 1, 2014 rings in, it’s going down. So you hate filled, low lives stay pressed but most importantly be blessed. Lmao. #NICKI2014

    Brandy “Two Eleven” was much stronger than the R&B Divas album and Alicia Keys “Girl on Fire” album.

    Jay Z is an iconic rapper so they just through his name in their but his album was not worthy of a nomination , especially when J.Cole’s introspective and well produced album “Born Sinner” received no nominations

    I believe Kendrick Lamar deserves to win Best Rap Album at the 2014 Grammy Awards for Kendrick Lamar’s good kid m.A.A.d city album, but I believe Macklemore and Ryan Lewis is going to win Best Rap Album at the 2014 Grammy Awards for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ The Heist album. Kendrick Lamar’s good kid m.A.A.d city album was the best hip hop album of 2012, received great universal acclaim, got a 91 percent on Metacritic, and was certified platinum by selling over 1 million copies this year. Kendrick Lamar had hip hop on lock and deserves all the credit this year.

    I feel sorry for Drake, Drake’s Nothing Was The Same album was a great hip hop album, but Drake had no chance of getting into Album of The Year over Kendrick Lamar or Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. I am happy to see Kanye West and Jay-Z both get nominated for Best Rap Album, Kanye West has already won 21 Grammy Awards, and Jay-Z has won 17 Grammy Awards, so they won’t win Best Rap Album this year, but J. Cole got completely snubbed for Best Rap Album. J. Cole getting shutout of Best Rap Album was just as bad as Bon Iver beating J. Cole for Best New Artist in 2012 when Bon Iver were not new artists.

    I am completely shocked that the Grammy Awards gave a big fuck you to Justin Timberlake and didn’t nominate The 20/20 Experience Part 1 for Album of The Year. I believe Daft Punk will win Album of The Year because Kendrick Lamar and Macklemore are going to split votes big time. It is funny and amazing that Sara Bareilles got nominated for Album of The Year when her album barely got good reviews and sold under 100,00 copies but all of these nominations were truly shocking.

    Kendrick truly deserves Album Of The Year and Artist Of The Year. He crafted a narrative album that told a story front to back, one of the most consistent albums I’ve ever heard, packed with tales of love, death, sex, peer pressure, vanity, christianity, gang life, alcoholism, drugs, family, friendship, loyalty, prostitution, and most importantly hope, faith, and redemption. It was laced with metaphors, double and triple entendres, double and triple time flows, elegant production, awesome choruses, and great guest features. It received near perfect reviews from all all the critics, topped several best-of-the-year lists, in addition to going platinum. But what does any of that matter, lets give the award to Taylor Swift’s pop album about how much of douchebags her continuously growing list of ex-boyfriends are.

    Say what yo want be ciara and j Cole were defiantly snubbed this year. The Ciara album was OK but “body party” charted higher then most of the songs in the r&b category, helping r&b make its way back on radio a little. And “power trip” at least could have got a best rap sung non. Who the hell is in the Grammy offices?

    Why is KL nominated for album of the year when he released his album in october 2012? Dont understand… (Love that album btw)

    [Reply]

    TRA Reply:

    @DIDLY DOO, The biggest reason why Kendrick Lamar was nominated for Album of The Year, Best Rap Album, Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, and Best Rap Song at the 2014 Grammy Awards is for the simple reason that Kendrick Lamar’s good kid m.A.A.d. city album was released after the 2013 Grammy Awards deadline which was September 31st, 2012. Kendrick Lamar’s good kid m.A.A.d. city album made a great impact with music critics and music fans in 2013, there was no way that the Grammy Awards were going to snub Kendrick Lamar this year.

    And please let’s no kid ourselves. Brandy’s new cd was not that good, nor was Tamar ‘s. They each have about 4 good/great songs each. The only changes I would do is take out TGT for Fantasia and then switch Alicia (I love her music but this is her worst cd) for K. Michelle

  65. Some Stay Mad

    Faith has ALWAYS been overlooked. She deserves that win. How is it that y’all were praising her at the Soul Train Awards, but when she gets recognized all of you want to throw her under the bus?

    Why aren’t you die hard R&B fans bitching about RiRi? She makes Urban POP music NOT R&B. She’s never nominated against her Pop peers, but no one says anything about that.

    K. Michelle’s and Ciara’s albums were trash.

    RiRi’s slot could’ve been given to Janelle Monae, Emeli Sande, or Kelly Rowland. Brandy’s album was basic and she forgot it existed in order to focus on a crappy BET series.

    Also Kanye robbed J.Cole & Talib Kweli.

    I’m shocked Ariana Grande wasn’t nominated.

    Put your stan card on hold and understand the music. A lot of good albums were released that aren’t Grammy worthy and that’s how the game goes. This isn’t anything new so stop acting brand new and fake mad this time of year.

    @?, since when does the relevance of a song have to do with the quality of it? That makes no sense.

    The Grammys are no longer credible. This list of nominees is proof of that. Jay leads the nods with one of his worst albums to date. It’s not a bad one at all, but I don’t get why it’s getting praise when its Metacritic score is 56/100..

    Ya know people really slept on two GREAT R&B albums this year and that’s why they are NOT nominated! I loved Brandy & Kelly’s album but NO ONE SUPPORTED THEM!! Its very sad but the truth, People supported tamar and fantasia, the numbers don’t lie when it comes to those ladies albums so when you want to see a artist get nominated go out & support! & that does not mean download it on your phone from an app! LOL Good Luck to everyone who was nominated!

    J. Cole should have been on there. Arguably one of the best albums this year.

    Even the Crooked Smile video was dope.

    Grammys is so wack.

    Good thing a lot of you’ll on here support JT. Cause Mackelmore and him are gonna sweep these awards hands down. This is the Grammy’s white people’s music award show. Jay will be lucky if he gets even 1 award….9 nomination haha…gtfoh!

    ….No Cole though? Wtf? I don’t understand how Magna Carta copped Best Rap Album but Born Sinner didn’t…when Born Sinner shits on MCHG.

    And I do think that Ciara should’ve been nominated for Best R&B Song. Body Party was one of the hottest R&B tracks out.

    Smh f*ck these noms.

    @G-STAR, You know it’s so interesting how you haters are displaying more histrionic attitudes about her not be nominated than her fans. Nicki Minaj has been in an ingenious place right now in her career and in her pivotal moments is when she silences the nay sayers. This is her 2nd year not being nominated and yes to some degree it’s disappointing but this non sense about “grammyless” is becoming soporific and tiresome. 2014 is the year Nicki Minaj will emulate her career and this 3rd album or new era will bring about new arguments so please have some new arguments and as I’ve said before, Nicki is preparing to enter into her 4th year since her debut, and hasn’t won a grammy, other females emcees took at least 6 or more yrs into their debut before winning a grammy, with the exception of Lauryn Hill, so you all present no substantial argument b/c she has accomplished a plethora of things that most of your favs took decades achieving or never will achieve. Nicki Minaj’s acquiescent attitude towards her contentious haters make you all look petty and loquacious. So, with all that being said,2014 will be an epochal year for Nicki Minaj, will you be paying attention? I sure as hell will be. #Nicki2014

    @Jonathan, Wow. I admire your devotion in general, but I think it’s too bad that it’s to someone who hasn’t a care in the world for you, nor, likely, would she if she met you.

    WTH is going in with the Grammy association? Some f those songs shouldn’t be nominated and artist but besides that, what happened to Rihanna’s Diamond nomination for r&b or Ciara’s Body Party or K.Michelles VSOP? When since songs with a music video or unofficial release could nominated like On the Run (part II) with Jayz and Beyonce? Why isn’t Rihanna’s Diamond nominated for song of the year or record of the years? Didn’t Royal just come out? This is the illuminati Awards!!

    Forget jay z – he is a sell -out = getting paid by robby cano to leave the Yankees. The only thing I am happy about is that he will win this year – yes, that’s right – the grammys have him nominated again! For the “Ugliest Artist” award. Heavy Fave,,, Lorde may shiock the word and beat Jay z – but I doubt it, considering Jay z has woint the award for five straight years – he is undefeated! That’s my bboy! go jay! sell-out prick – go worship the devil and p[ractice a religion that promotes killing innocent people to sacrifcice blood for the baphpomemt. sellout. go look in the mirror ! Ha! You win!
