Grammy Nominees For Rap Announced And Iggy Azalea Is Poised To Win Big

By HHL Editors

Let's face it, the Grammys don't have a great deal of creditably when it comes to Hip Hop. (Or any genre of popular music, really.)

But it's still the premier music award show around, for reasons of tradition, and no matter what anybody might say it's always a thrill to be nominated.

The Grammys announced all their 2015 nominees today, including in the four major rap categories. Drake, Eminem, Common, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa were among the names who were mentioned more than once.

Then there is Iggy Azalea.  The Australian import not only snagged Best Rap Song and Best Rap Album nominations, but she crossed over into the Best New Artist category, and Record of the Year for 'Fancy.'

Check out all of the nominees here, and the rap nominees below. Who do you think should win?
