(Only The Important) 2016 Grammy Award Nominees

December 7th, a day that will forever be remembered in American history, a day that will live in infamy. Not only because the Japanese fighter planes dropped them thun thun thuns on Pearl Harbor bay, but because Kendrick Lamar got nominated for 11 Grammy awards and Macklemore is up for 0!!! Also, Kehlani‘s mixtape You Should Be Here was nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album as well as The Internet‘s Ego Death. The Weeknd is up for 7 Grammys and Drake has 3 nominations including one for Back To Back, the destructive diss track to Meek Mill. Kanye West is up for 2 Grammys and J. Cole is up for 3 Grammys respectively. So below is the only categories you probably care about, I took out all of the other irrelevent weird categories like Best Album Notes.
