Lauryn Hill is the Last Black Woman to win the Grammy for Album Of The Year for “The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill” in 1999. It’s now 2017 which marks 18 years since this happened and your telling me out of all the great music Black people have been putting out for all those years the Grammys just had keep giving the biggest awards to white mediocre artists. Black people birthed all these genres of music yet we can’t be recognized for our talents instead they downsized our awards by giving black people Best URBAN contemporary album GRAMMYS or Best R&B/Hip Hop GRAMMYS that all we’re good for now huh?
People didn’t get why I was mad yesterday it’s not that Adele had won Album Of The Year over Beyonce it’s the simple fact that 18 years ago Lauryn Hill was the LAST black woman to win that award and black people of have been nominated in the category for the last 18 years and still hasn’t won the award despite all the great ass music black people have been putting out.
