Who Should Win The Grammy For Best Rap Album?

And the Grammy nominees for Best Rap Album are… Take Care by Drake; Life Is Good by Nas; Based on a T.R.U. Story by 2 Chainz; God Forgives I Don’t by Rick Ross; Undun by The Roots; and Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Part 1 by Lupe Fiasco. Who deserves the honors? Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson narrows it down and delivers his verdict on this episode of The Truth.

    undun is the best album of the year, hands down. it pushes boundaries that hip-hop has not reached before and succeeds with every chance it takes. It’s too bad the Grammy’s do not recognize artistic achievement and only industry popularity.

    2 Chainz gets a nomination and Kendrick doesnt? Idiots….

    Nas is way better than Drake, Life is Good beats Take Care with ease. 2chainz/Rick Ross over Kendrick Lamar is a joke.

    I really think Nas should win. He was written off by a ton of people and he delivered one of his best albums almost 20 years into his career. That’s really unheard of.

    The Roots have won Grammy’s in the past, so that’s not fully true. Undun is in the top 5 easily but I still think Nas earned the award this time. A lot more work was put into his album in my opinion and it came out above expectations.

    Nas! Life is GOOD is too real for me, and I’ve missed that on an album.

    Honestly, I feel most of the albums this year are quite mediocre. But if I had to chose one, it would be Life Is Good.

    Drake should win. Its a rare album than can successfully mix rap with song and video. Take Care met every aspect. The writing, the rap, singing and video and collaboration with other artists were almost impeccable.)
