KENDRICK LAMAR & DRAKE LEAD 2019 GRAMMY AWARD NOMINEES

The nominations for the 61st annual GRAMMY Awards have been revealed and it’s Kendrick Lamar (8), Drake (7), and Cardi B/Childish Gambino (5) who lead the pack.

With an eligibility window that spans from October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2018, the association did their best (heh) to select what they felt best represented each category (and who would bring them the most attention, knowing damn well they aren’t winning).
