Historically, Nas has come close to taking home the Grammy but could never manage to edge out the other nominees. He has 14 total nominations. In 1996, he was nominated for Best Rap Solo Performance for “If I Ruled The World (Imagine That).” In 1999, 2007, 2008, and 2012, he was nominated for Best Rap Album for projects I Am, Hip Hop Is Dead, Untitled, and Life Is Good. 2012 saw Nas getting noms for “Daughters” (Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance) and “Cherry Wine” with the late Amy Winehouse (Best Rap/Sung Collaboration).
With 13 studio albums under his belt, Nas fans are excited about

his big win.
Hit-Boy shared a message on his Instagram after learning about the news. “I’m dedicating this year’s Grammy for best rap album to Reggie Warren from the legendary R&B group troop who sadly passed away today,” he wrote, adding, “We got more work to do.”
While Freddie Gibbs didn’t win, he was a good sport about it. “I might’ve lost today, but I’m undefeated in court!” he said.
