the winning RAP and the arrest of Killer Mike

There 66th edition of the Grammy Awards took place on February 4, 2024 Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles: Let's go as usual to see the winners of the Rap categories and the like and everything that happened before, during and unfortunately after the gala.

Drake and JAY-Z controversies, Killer Mike arrested: In short, there will also be the usual Grammy Awards for rap in 2024

The relationship between rap and the Grammy Awards has always been one of ups and downs, with the latter becoming more and more common. The 2024 edition is further proof of this, as it begins just a few hours before its start.

One of the biggest critics – if we want to call him that – of the Grammys in recent years drake. You remember the controversy afterwards God's plan? He brought it up just yesterday, sharing a short video of his speech on Instagram and adding:

Remember, incredible artists, this show does not represent the facts, just the opinion of a group of people whose names are being kept secret 🤫😂 (you can literally google them). Congratulations to whoever wins something for hip-hop, but this show doesn't define anything in our world.

In short, nothing new. What is a little surprising, however, is what one of the most decorated of all time said: JAY Z. When receiving the Dr. Dre Global Impact Awardaccompanied by his eldest daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, pointed the finger at the Recording Academy for never giving out an award Beyonce a Grammy Award for Album of the Year, despite being the most decorated female artist in history with 32 wins:

I don't want to embarrass this young lady, but she has more Grammys than anyone and has never won Album of the Year. So even by your own criteria it doesn't work. Think about it. Multiple Grammys, never won Album of the Year, that doesn't work.

It's strange to hear these words from a person who has such a strong connection to the Grammy Awards, especially when they're referring not to himself but to his wife, one of the most influential women in music of the last 20 years , and also brought home the most gold gramophones himself.

In any case, all of this is nothing compared to what happened to the man who – surprisingly (nicely) – won the rap categories with three wins: Best rap album, best rap performanceand and Best Rap Song.

We would have liked to talk about it exclusively because no one would have thought of seeing him before his nomination for the 2024 Grammys Killer Mike with a golden gramophone in hand for these rap categories, let alone three. And we are very happy about it, also because of his album Michael It's a bomb.

What happened after the awards ceremony? Mike was handcuffed by law enforcement and taken away for minor assault, the Los Angeles Police Department said. The department also said Killer Mike was restrained and handcuffed after a physical altercation near Crypto.com Arena before being arrested and taken away.

We will see how it goes on. Let's just hope that this historic triple victory is what everyone remembers and not the scene where he is handcuffed.

Enough talk, let's recap the 2024 Grammy Awards wins in the rap categories below, along with some performances, including those discussed by Travis Scott (also with a grudge against the Recording Academy):
