J. Cole has been nominated for “Album of the Year” (4 Your Eyez Only) and “Best Male Hip-Hop Artist” at the 2017 BET Awards! This years BET Awards will air live on June 25th from Los Angeles at 8 p.m. ET.
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.

rap monster is constantly mocked and looked down upon for being an idol, but he’s actually one of the few k-artists that are recognized by american media and american hip hop artists.
like he was the only korean artist to be featured on spin’s “50 best hip hop albums of all time”, he collaborated with Krizz Kaliko and Warren G, and now he’s recognized by Wale.
You don’t really see that kind of thing happening with most k-hip hop artists. What makes it even more phenomenal is that rap monster wasn’t even born in America or had any experience living in America. He self-taught himself english and he was able to get to that point through his hard work.
Even Suga was recognized on Tidal’s Rising, which is still more than what a lot of k-hip hop artists get.
Maisie Dalton fixed things. And Niall Horan was definitely broken.
Niall’s head was tipped against the back of the chair as he stared at the ceiling. He’d been listening to Maisie and Nolan and some representative from the record company discuss him like he wasn’t in the room for the past 30 minutes. He’d have interrupted if he thought it would’ve done any good. But as it was, no one seemed to pay much attention to or care what it was he wanted. Which was probably better considering Niall had no idea what he wanted anyway.
He let out a deep sigh, barely even realizing that the room had gone silent,
“Mr. Horan?” He heard a female voice say.
He lifted his head, his eyes meeting Maisie’s for the first time since he’d walked into the room. All three of them were looking at him as though he’d been asked a question although he had no idea what it was.
Maisie raised her eyebrows,
“Yes or no?”
Niall pushed himself back up in the chair and stared between them for a moment before he shrugged,
“What was the question?”
Maisie thrust her hand out,
“Exactly. See? He can’t even answer a simple question right now.”
