JAY-Z Now Has More Grammys Than Any Other Rapper in History
Fuck that 0 for eight shit.
The Carters’ Everything Is Love album took home a Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album earlier this evening. The award was a landmark win for JAY-Z: with that win, Hov now has 22 Grammy wins, making him the rapper with the most Grammy wins.
Coming into the evening, JAY-Z was tied with Kanye West (both had 21 nominations.) Kanye had the chance to win a Grammy this evening: he was nominated for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical. However, he lost to Pharrell.
JAY-Z has the opportunity to pick up more wins. Everything Is Love was also nominated for Best R&B Performance. (It was also nominated for Best Music Video for “APESHIT,” but lost to Childish Gambino.)
