    The Kentucky-born rapper sure had a great run at the music. His singles from his new album ‘Come Home the Kids Miss You’ proved to be smashing hits. The single ‘First Class’ sampled from Fergie’s ‘Glamorous’ topped the Billboard 100 chart. Previously, the rapper had ‘What’s Poppin’ featuring Tory Lanez, Lil Wayne, and Dababy topping the chart. His debut album ‘That’s What They All Say’ charted at the No.5 position.

    Before his second studio album, he collaborated with Lil Nas X on ‘Industry Baby’, people listening to mainstream music came to terms with his prowess. The song charted at the No.1 position in October 2021. But, about the Grammys, the rapper had his debut nomination for ‘What’s Poppin’ in the ‘Best Rap Performance’ category. Later, he was nominated with Lil Nas X for their collaboration in the ‘Best Melodic Rap Performance’ category.

    This year, he is nominated for three categories ‘Best Melodic Rap Performance’, ‘Best Rap Song’ and ‘Best Rap Album’. People are not happy with the nominations. Apart from Kendrick Lamar and Pusha T, the other nominees honestly did not fit the bill. There are newer crops of rappers that are emerging in the industry. Lil Durk had a good year, JID, Rico Nasty, Key Glock, Lupe Fiasco, and new indie rappers like billy woods, and Conway.

    The whole 2013 Grammy situation made people mad. Instead of Kendrick Lamar or Lupe Fiasco, the award went to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. In a Rolling Stone article, the writer wrote, “Harlow’s Come Home, the Kids Miss You, nominated for Best Rap Album, debuted at number three on Billboard and contained multiple hits. Still, the overall body of work was underwhelming.”
