Lil Wayne Strikes Gold at Grammys

Lil Wayne wins Best Rap Album

Lil Wayne may not have won the top prizes, but he still managed to score four awards at the 51st Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday.

The New Orleans rapper picked up four golden gramophones for Best Rap Album, Best Rap Solo Performance, Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, and Best Rap Song.

“Thank God, thank New Orleans, thank these people you see right here, and thank you,” he said as he accepted the Grammy for Best Rap Album.

The duo of Robert Plant & Alison Krauss were the evening’s top winners, picking up five total Grammys for Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals, Best Country Collaboration with Vocals, and Best Contemporary Folk/Americana Album.

Other multiple winners included Coldplay, Adele, Al Green, Ne-Yo, John Mayer, Brad Paisley, and Sugarland.

Jennifer Hudson can now add a Grammy to her mantel. The Oscar winner went home with the trophy for Best R&B Album presented to her by Whitney Houston.
