Forbes writer, Zack O'Malley Greenburg, wrote today that the 2014 Grammy's will be a big night for Hip-Hop. Jay Z leads all artists with nine nominations. Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Pharrell, and Justin Timberlake all had seven nominations. None of Jay Z's nominations came in any major categories but the rest of the hip hop artists listed above could come away with some big awards.
"It’s worth noting that all four rap acts mentioned above appeared on FORBES’ latest Hip-Hop Cash Kings list, raking a combined $70 million last year, an average of $17.5 million. Rappers J. Cole and A$AP Rocky didn’t make our list, and despite releasing albums this year that were well received, they each garnered just one Grammy nomination.
Perhaps most interesting of all is the case of Kanye West, one of the most talented–and irascible–musicians of any genre. He has argued more stridently than anyone against being pigeonholed into a single category (“Anybody who writes down that ‘He’s the best of rap,’ that’s racist!” he insistedat a recent concert in Brooklyn).
And yet, in a year that saw four hip-hop acts get seven or more nominations apiece, West notched just two, one for Best Rap Song (“New Slaves”) and one for Best Rap Album (Yeezus). Like his last solo album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, West’s most recent effort received no recognition in the main categories. Then again, Yeezus is far from radio-friendly, and might be better described as radio-antagonistic."
