Two Grammy Awards Now Merged Into One For Rap
Now I typically don't blog too much about news, but I found this interesting. Recently the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences made over 30 changes to the Grammys, a couple involving Hip hop & R&B.
Both 'Best Rap Solo Performance' (won by Eminem this past year) and 'Best Rap Group Performance' (won by Jay Z & Swiss Beatz this past year) will be merged into one award 'Best Rap Performance.
R&B and International awards saw the most change. The amount of R&B awards were cut in half (male and female awards were made into one). Was this a good decision? Are there entirely too many awards, or do people enjoy the amount of accomplishments we reward our artists with?
