Grammys 2024

The Grammy Awards this year were a whirlwind of excitement, particularly in the hip-hop category. Travis Scott's impactful album "Utopia" stood out as a frontrunner, alongside Metro Boomin's "Heroes & Villains," Drake and 21 Savage's collaboration "Her Loss," and Nas's compelling work "King's Disease 3." However, it was Killer Mike who emerged victorious, clinching three Grammys for Best Rap Performance, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap Album.

The ceremony wasn't without controversy. Jay-Z, while accepting the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award, expressed dissatisfaction with some of the nominations, hinting at a growing sentiment of disillusionment with the Grammys' decision-making process.

Adding to the evening's drama, a video surfaced capturing the rapper, adorned with three new Grammys, being escorted away in handcuffs. Reports suggest an altercation with a bouncer, although details remain unconfirmed. Despite these incidents, the event also witnessed heartwarming moments and well-deserved accolades.

These awards were presented this year:
