Last night, The Recording Academy unveiled the list of nominees for its upcoming 62nd annual Grammy Awards. Among them are rap acts like Tyler, the Creator, DaBaby, 21 Savage and the late Nipsey Hussle.
Tyler’s IGOR was nominated for Best Rap Album, putting him up against Meek Mill’s Championships and 21’s I Am > I Was. Others nominated in his category include the star-studded Dreamville compilation album, Revenge of the Dreamers III, and YBN Cordae’s debut album, The Lost Boy. DaBaby, on the other hand, scored big with his breakout single “Suge (Yea Yea),” which earned two noms for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.
Meanwhile, Hussle earned three posthumous nominations, including Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for his March hit, “Racks in the Middle,” and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “Higher” with DJ Khaled and John Legend.
Other notable nominees include Lil Nas X, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Post Malone, Lana Del Rey, Vampire Weekend and HER. Lizzo became the most-nominated artist for the 2020 Grammys after receiving eight nods, including Record of the Year (“Truth Hurts”) and Album of the Year (Cuz I Love You).
