The 2018 Grammy Nominations were announced this morning, Tuesday, November 28th, and some of your favorite hip-hop actss have taken over the categories.
Taking home nods for the coveted Best New Artist category is Luv Is Rage 2 rapper Lil Uzi Vert and a few of his musical friends.
Since having a breakout year with numerous hit singles, a Nicki Minaj-assisted video on the way, and a gold-selling debut album, Uzi joins the list with artists Khalid, SZA, and singer/songwriter Julia Michaels.
Uzi’s competitors recently covered Billboard Magazine’s Grammy preview issue, so their nods come to not much of a surprise. For Uzi, this marks the rapper’s first and only Grammy nomination.
The Philly native is no stranger to high accoldaes in 2017, as he not only took home two VMAs this past summer as well as performed his 4x platinum hit ‘XO Tour Llif3’ alongside Ed Sheeran.
The 2018 Grammys will air February 12, 2017.
