It’s that time of the year again where the music industries elite gather to see who the nominees are for the annual Grammy awards. Jay-Z leads the pack for 2014 with 9 nods despite having a rather mediocre album. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams and Justin Timberlake all got 7 each.

The most interesting category for me though is Best Rap Album. “Yeezus” made the cut along with Drake’s “NWTS” but J. Cole’s “Born Sinner” got overlooked. Tragic.
