What are your picks?

1 out of 5? Wow, I suck at this...


  1. who cares? look at all that wack shit... i'm sorry but why would any true hip-hop head bother with this program?

    (however, out of those nominations for rap album, i hope Tip wins too)

  2. I'm not a big fan of T.I. but I agree with you on your first prediction.

    I'd like to see the duo go to Eminem. I think that song is the best of the bunch there.

    I really have no opinion as to the solo performance. I'm not really feeling any of those joints.

    I'll agree with you on best song as well.

    Best album - definitely Q-Tip. That album is amazing and sure deserves to come out heads and shoulders above the rest nominated.
