Rap icon Nas was nominated for a Grammy Award 14 times and has never won it. But for the fifteenth time, luck smiled at him and he took home a golden gramophone.
It would seem. After 14 defeats in a row, it was possible in principle to leave hope for victory. But not that Nas. He stubbornly walked forward and did not give up. And here is the result – a victory at the most prestigious music competition.
During the award ceremony, broadcast live, Nas was declared the winner in the nomination «Best Rap Album» for his 13th studio record «King’s Disease».
It should be said that the competitors of the popular rapper were very serious guys who had long and thoroughly claimed to receive a golden gramophone. These are D Smoke, Jay Electronica, as well as several other groups known to rappers around the world.
Surprisingly, Nas did not appear live on the red carpet to accept long-awaited award. In addition, so far he has not responded to victory even on social networks. His fans still cannot explain such silence. It is possible that the popular rapper joined a rather large group of artists who boycotted the Grammy ceremony. However, these are just assumptions.
Recall that many world-famous artists reacted negatively to the Grammy award ceremony this year. Numerous accusations of corruption and injustice and the opacity of nominating nominees for the award were made against the founders. It is possible that at the end of the award ceremony a big scandal may erupt around this acute topic in the music world.
