It’s been a long time coming but Rick Ross is finally getting the Grammy respect that he deserves. He’s been snubbed a few times, but last night’s nomination announcement proved that the curse is finally broken.
The bawse of the Maybach Music Group team racked up a nod in the Best Rap Album category for his latest album, God Forgives, I Don’t.
An excited Ross, who is currently on tour with the rest of MMG, tweeted about being nominated, and congratulated his brethren Wale who shares in the Grammy joy. Wale earned a Best Rap Song nomination for the Miguel-assisted record, “Lotus Flower Bomb.”
With five albums on deck— many of which have debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts— it’s assumed that Ross would’ve won a Grammy by now, but as the years go by the Grammy race is looking more and more like a popularity contest.
Either way, it’s better late than never, and since this is a celebratory time, let’s not harp on the past and look towards the future.
