Tyler, The Creator, Meek Mill, 21 Savage and More Nominated for Best Rap Album at 2020 Grammy Awards
The nominations for the 2020 Grammy Awards have been revealed, and plenty of hip-hop favorites have scored nods in the Best Rap Album category.
This year's nominees include J. Cole and Dreamville's Revenge of the Dreamers III, Meek Mill's Championships, Tyler, The Creator's Igor, 21 Savage's I Am > I Was and YBN Cordae's The Lost Boy.
21 Savage, Tyler The Creator and J. Cole have all been nominated for Grammy Awards in the past. Cole, in particular, has been nominated 11 times over the years but has yet to win a golden gramophone. While it's not Cole's first nod, the rest of the Dreamville roster—J.I.D, Bas and EarthGang to name a few—can be proud to say that they've all earned their first Grammy nomination thanks to their successful compilation album. Another first-timer is 2019 XXL Freshman YBN Cordae, who dropped his debut album earlier this year.
"Yo I got nominated for a fucking GRAMMY WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK," Cordae tweeted shortly after finding out about his nomination. "2 of em !!!!"
Cordae has also been nominated for Best Rap Song for his Chance The Rapper-assisted banger "Bad Idea." He joins other nominees in the category like DaBaby, Rick Ross, Drake and the late Nipsey Hussle, who was posthumously nominated for his song "Racks in the Middle" featuring Roddy Ricch and Hit-Boy.
Needless to say, the competition for Best Rap Album is dense, so it's hard to single out a favorite. The 2020 Grammy Awards will air on Jan. 26 on CBS. Congratulations to all of the nominees. Check out the announcement from the Recording Academy below.
