From UDub News:
And you thought MTV's "Hottest MCs In The Game" top ten list caused an uproar in the hip hop community. Nominations for the 2010 Grammy's were released yesterday and Beyonce, Kanye West, Jay-Z and Drake are all up for a few statuettes. Beyonce snagged three nods including Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Record of the Year, while Jay-Z oddly misses out on his "Blueprint 3" monster album missing the Grammy deadline; he's up twice in the same category for "Run This Town" and "D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune" featuring Rihanna and Kanye West. West and Young Jeezy's "Amazin" is nominated for Best Rap Performance by Duo or Group. Newcomer Drake continues his hot streak in 2009 with two nominations in separate categories.
While the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards tapped some of hip hops finest such as Jay-Z, Kanye West, Drake, Mos Def, Q-Tip and Eminem a chock full of rap albums were overlooked. Jadakiss, Rick Ross, and Fabolous are just a few names who were completely overlooked although their albums were the talk of hip hop conversations and all made decent debut on the Billboard charts. Rick Ross' "Deeper Than Rap" debuted at number one on the Billboard charts making it his third debut in a row.
