I think the competition really lies between Kast, Chamil, and Roots...I think Chamil, got the edge though....that song was everywhere

I never knew this fact, so that means that best hip hop category is when 51%+ is mostly vocal singing and in the rap catgory it's more rap then singing?

This would make alot of sense, but who actually goes through albums listening for 51% of singing/rapping?

I dont htink so, because this IS best rap album. The VOCAL is just vocal, doesnt matter singing or rapping, I dont even think there is a hip-hop category, just rap, ur thinking VMAs or something

Luda? no.
TI? no.
Pharell? no.
Lupe? hmmm...probably not for his first one...

I'm bettin' they get some "lifetime achievement" votes.....and that that Dylan performance and the rave reviews that followed it get them the trophy.....

this'll also give them a big sales push....hopefully

nothing on game theory sounds like anything on radio.

its way way left.

but the thing they have going for them is the industry really digs game theory. their peers really dig it and they've been getting upper crust props all year. it might help since those are people that vote.

this aint the people's choice awards or mtv or billboard.

becasue of that they actually have a shot....maybe

though i think they shouldve won for all their nominations in the past, they were always up against grammy fave's. it just is. this year, the only one i could see getting grammy love for some strange reason is surprisingly Luda. i know its weird, but something about Crash makes this guy seem like the academy would recognize again. too bad.

but of all years, this is it. for their best release since TFA. fitting. i will be watching, solely for this award. cause the rest of these categories are bullshit.

Who the Fuck cares, non-hip-hop hollywood types picking a best "rap" Album or song.... Why do we constantly care about what these fools think about our music. Game theory was the ONLY album I bought last year, Hip-hop or otherwise... THE ROOTS Won in my book... GAME OVER. FUCK A GRAMMY, I'll be listening to Game theory for years(God willing), I don't listen to that other Jigaboo crap if it even comes on the Radio.

even if only slightly. they would be talked about and reported about more than when the album came out. think what you want about the grammys, but if you loved the album, cross your fingers and hope they win best rap album simply for the attention. and let's be honest: all this "fuck the grammys" talk is so stupid. most people know they'd love to win one (or oscar or MVP, etc).

Honestly we should all hope for them to win. We ALL KNOW the Roots deserve the Grammy nod so why shouldn't they get it. I mean yeah they don't get the commercial push that most of these others do but hopefully someone in the academy can recognize the quality aspect since thats what the Grammys should be about. Otherwise just give the stupid award to the album with the most sales and be done with it.

Y'all do know the Roots have a Grammy already, right? 1999 they won Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for "You Got Me." It's not like being recognized is some sort of big breakthrough for them. They've been nominated three times before and have won one.

It'd be nice to see them get Best Rap Album, though. I've never really been one to care whether or not the musicians I listen to get recognized, but The Roots have been working at it for so long and make such good music they deserve the award more than anyone else. I don't think any of the other albums mentioned, including Lupe, even come close to Game "Therapy."

BTW, Mos got a nomination as well for Best Rap Solo Performance. Surprised nobody's mentioned that.

that album pretty much went platinum. i cant say that was a direct result of winning the grammy, but im sure it didnt hurt things.

If grammy academy (whoever the hell that is) had some sense and knew the Roots had a knack for live performances theyd ask them to play. I feel a good performance, like that at the Dylan tribute, would be huge. One can hope.
