I worked on two records that were nominated for Grammys this year. Drake and 2 Chains. Both for best rap album of the year. I think Drake probably has a better shot at winning it. Not because itâ€™s a better record or anything as theyâ€™re both great records, I just think heâ€™s more well known to the Grammy voters. But sometimes you never know with these things. The Grammy voters can be unpredictable at the most predictable moments.
Itâ€™s interesting to see that thereâ€™s not one hip hop album up for Album of the Year. I think it might be reflecting the change thatâ€™s been going on in pop music. You hardly hear any hip hop anymore on mainstream radio. Itâ€™s all dance music with Maroon 5 and Taylor Swift sprinkled in. Personally, Iâ€™d like a little more variety. But maybe Iâ€™m the minority on that.
