I hope Sampa the Great wins best hip hop at arias tonight. She’s done extraordinary things with this record, here and internationally. Respect to the Hoods, they’re icons and they win this every year they have music out (and will probably again). Big respect to Tkay, Baker Boy and also my fam Horrorshow, B Wise, Homeward Bound, Okenyo, Nooky and Tasman Keith.
Too many artists have sacrificed years of their lives and sanity to create their art and may never get a nomination, so take em with a big grain of salt. Awards will never sum up your value.
With the speed that hip hop is moving in this country, I feel like things will change forever from here on and I’m pumped about it.
