And the nominees are ...
... did you notice that the Grammy nominations came out on Thursday? I missed the hype, but caught the 'news' before it was a day old.
So, I tried to investigate a bit to bring you more than what you get in the typical saturated headlines. Here is what I discovered:
<- - Gnarls Barkley got some attention (not just for Record AND Album of the Year; 5 nominations total), but also for:
- Urban/Alternative Performance
<- - Meanhile, Sergio Mendes' "Timeless" only got two nods ... The category being Urban/Alternative Performance.
<- - Did you know that there is a Grammy award for Rock or Rap Gospel Album?
<- - The Roots are in there for two categories:
- Rap Duo or Group
- Rap Album
<- - Matisyahu is nominated in the Reggae category ...
yo ... I'm done w/this for now. My most searing Grammy nomination comments are being reserved for a different blog; it's non-hip hop related.
Oh, the Grammy Awards take place on Sunday, February 11, 2007 @ 8 p.m. ESDT.
stay true ... kfox
