Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar Lead Grammy Nominations! Cardi B & SZA snatch some too…

Jay-Z snags 8 nominations this year for the 2018 Grammy Awards, while Kendrick picks up 7. In the Top 4 categories, both of these gentleman secure nominations for Record of the Year (The Story of O.J./Humble) and Album of the Year (4:44/Damn)! Jay also snagged a nomination in Song of the Year. This really solidifies that this year is deemed the year of Hip Hop!

A few surprises on the list were Cardi B! She snagged 2 nominations for Bodak Yellow in rap categories, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song. Newcomer SZA secured a nomination in the Top 4 as well, as she is nominated for Best New Artist. Outside of the Top 4, SZA also nominated for Best Rap/Sung Performance (Love Galore), Best R&B Song (Supermodel), Best Urban Contemporary Album (Ctrl) and Best R&B Performance (The Weekend).

If you ask me, the nominations are solid. I do feel like they shut out DJ Khaled, who has a tremendous year. Mary J. Blige, who had one of the best R&B albums this year. And Rihanna. I’m starting to think the Grammys hate her, after losing every Grammy last year, she had one of the biggest songs this summer (Wild Thoughts) and she was completely looked over.

Rico is Ready to take You to the Next Level

Published

By

Marketing & branding manager Rico Creed is a natural born hustler in every sense of the word. The New Orleans native always knew that with dedication & determination anything was possible. Growing up Master P, Juvenile , Lil Wayne & Curren$y who all came from the same area was just the inspiration he needed to pursue his own career. With that same drive & passion for his own music he landed him a record deal in 2012 , where he ultimately began working alongside Roc Nation’s Lawrence Parker. As Rico made a name for himself on the road opening for major acts including August Alsina , Kidd Kidd & Kevin Gates he slowly but surely learned how important branding & marketing was for success.

As he quietly put the artist side to rest , Rico decided to step behind the scenes teaming up with other artist helping them with their brand. Teezy Baby was just one of the first he helped to gain over 200K social media followers and amassed over half a million plays on multiple music platforms. From then on helping acts like Tripped Redd , Yung Tory , Nick Nack Patti Whack & more have proven to be the fuel he needed to start his own label & management company. Now with ID Management, Rico is ready to work with the next best thing and all it takes is the right talent for him to make things truly happen.  If you think you got that star power , follow him at @SayRico via Instagram to see if you got what it takes to become the next big star.

Verzuz: SWV/Xscape

Published

By

So last night, was finally another Verzuz that everybody had been waiting on. Let me start off by saying, every lady on that stage was loved and has brought something to the show. However, I’m gonna have to go with Xscape for the win. That’s based on consistency the whole show, as well as singing/playing the songs we wanted to hear.

As for SWV, I feel like it set a tone that the first song played was a solo song by Coko. At times it felt like it was Coko vs Xscape, and why wouldn’t it be? She legit sang lead on a majority of their catalogue, as well as backgrounds. Xscape brought some controversial swings to the battle by playing songs written by the members (Bills Bills Bills, No Scrubs), but why not use them? It’s their work.

What I didn’t care for was the U And Dat, Everything I Love, Men In Black and a couple others, because those slots could have been filled with songs from the catalog that were actually overlooked. After a night full of celebrating good music, because lets face it, ladies don’t sing like this no more, the mentioned going on tour together. Lord I want to be in that number.
