Image result for 2018 GRAMMY AWARDS WINNERS LIST

And just like that, the 2018 Grammy Awards, the most storied and star-studded music awards show in the world, has arrived. As is usually the case, some of rap’s biggest superstars will be in attendance in hopes to go home with a big win.

Leading the field is JAY-Z, who earned eight Grammy nominations at this year’s awards show, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and several more for his 4:44 album and songs on it. Needless to say, Hov’s as relevant as ever, which is something the Grammys will celebrate when he’s honored with this year’s Salute to Industry Icons Award.

Also up for multiple Grammys is Kendrick Lamar, whose DAMN. album earned him noms for Album of the Year, Rap Album of the Year, Best Rap Album and Record of the Year among others.

Other rappers up for big wins at the 2018 Grammys include Childish Gambino and Migos. Gambino’s nominated for Record of the Year (“Redbone”), Album of the Year (Awaken, My Love!), Best Urban Contemporary Album (Awaken, My Love!) and Best Traditional R&B Performance (“Redbone”).

Quavo, Offset and Takeoff are up for Best Rap Performance (“Bad and Boujee,” Migos Featuring Lil Uzi Vert) and Best Rap Album (Culture). Swizz Beatz has already given the group his vote for the latter.

Also nominated are folks like Cardi B, Tyler, The Creator, Rapsody, Lil Uzi Vert, The Weeknd, 6LACK, Big Sean and Logic. Logic’s suicide awareness song, “1-800-273-8255,” is nominated for Song of the Year.
