Certified Lover Boy was passed over for Album of the Year this year. Only one rap album, West’s DONDA, was nominated in this category.

One could say that 2015 was the year of three rappers: Kendrick Lamar, Drake and Future – three artists who had an incredible run in 12 months.
Choosing someone other than Kendrick Lamar as the best rapper of 2017 almost feels like you’re going against the grain on purpose.
