    Mad Jack is a jigga warrior. Nothing you say will convince him to give Nas props. Let it go.

    No awards show that has nominees and winners voted on is not going to award an album based on artistic merit. Awards shows come down to popularity contests. If I'm not mistaken, Carter III cleaned up at all of those awards shows that year.

    That's cause the shit I said is the real answer. Grammy's don't care what you look like or what you rap about. Also don't care about how good you are for the most part. The award always goes to someone with wide mainstream appeal and lots of records sold.

    Yea, no shit. I said that like 5 pages ago.

    ROFL,I don't even be in the hood.I'm talking about hard working citizens and college students bump Wayne.It is what it is.Why do you have such a problem with the truth?As if you cannot enjoy Nas music because white people enjoy it too.

    LOL @ this hurt Nas stan.It was Written is in my top 5 favorite albums all time with Illmatic being in my top ten.I give props when they are due and it's a fact that Nas has not done anything in the last ten years that warrants props.Why you mad @ me for keeping it real?

    Grammy's haven't been significant for years, especially concerning Hip-Hop.

    because Nas isn't as popular as Lil Wayne is now and the album wasn't something everybody could get into. while Wayne's album was more pop friendly

    the grammys tend to go to the biggest and the most popular album, not the best. thats why eminem has won all the time

    Hence the term POP. The Grammy's love POP. Nas get on the POP bandwagon they would consider...but I doubt he would do that.

    The Grammys are outta touch with reality.
    To be a real hood you need more than just a gun. You need ideas.

    I agree with everything you said besides the Grammy's being out of touch with reality. Maybe they outta touch with your reality but the mass majorities reality is Lil Wayne is nice. I personally like Nas better but not the public spending money on albums

    Close thread. Lil Wayne wishes he had the respect Nas gets.

    Quick answer, Nas album was called N!gger........the white people didn't like it. They prefer it when Lil Wayne is telling young girls to lick the lollipop rather than Nas teaching the youth about the blackmans struggle.

    Interesting. How did the album and the song "N.I.G.G.E.R." end up in the nominations if white people didn't like it?

    Personally, I don't think race was a factor in Nas not winning.'08 was Lil' Wayne's year and he cleaned up every awards show. I mean, both albums were also nominated at the BET Hip Hop awards and Nas lost that one too. Both were also up for Best Lyricist. Nas is my favorite rapper, but he's never been a rapper that was big with awards shows.

    My point is that politcal talk dont get no love at the grammys.....Nas album got a message.........only message on CarterIII was the Katrina song. Grammys supports dum down music........
