Drake Did Not Submit 'More Life' for GRAMMYs Consideration

Drake Did Not Submit 'More Life' for GRAMMYs Consideration”

Rapper Drake has reportedly ruled himself out of the running for the 2018 Grammy Awards after failing to submit his More Life project for consideration.

More Life was released as a "playlist" back in March, but was packaged as a regular album, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and spawning top 10 hits like "Passionfruit" and "Portland".

According to the AP, an anonymous source close to the nomination process revealed that Drizzy refrained from submitting his critically acclaimed album for awards like Album of The Year, Rap Album of The Year. The Canadian rapper seems to be highly skeptical about the Recording Academy award, due to the vivid infringement plagued on the hip-hop music genre. Well, we will find out on November 28th when all 83 Grammy award categories are released. He's been nominated 27 times, he's rapped "I got a gold trophy from the committee for validation", and even has a song called "Grammys" but apparently, he just doesn't care about the Grammys anymore. The singer, song-writer and rap superstar took home 2 Grammys for "Hotline Bling" just a year ago, but chose not to attend the awards ceremony. A rap tune has never won song of the year or record of the year, and Lauryn Hill and Outkast are the only rap-based acts to win the coveted prize for album of the year. Frank Ocean's "Channel Orange" was snubbed from the award show when it first came out, outraging West and other industry pros. Justin Timberlake, who didn't earn nominations for album, song or record of the year when he made a major comeback in 2013, skipped the 2014 show. Music released between October 1, 2016 and September 30, 2017 are eligible for nomination.

Kendrick Lamar's "Damn" is the clear front-runner in the best rap album category - another reason Drake may have decided not to submit his album.
