It's not going to be a big year for rap at the Grammys.  

Kanye West is the only traditional rapper to get a nomination in the categories of album, song, or record of the year -- and his album nod for Donda is a long shot.  (Lil Nas X and Doja Cat do have some big three nominations if you want to consider them rappers.)

Baby Keem, The Kid LAROI, and Saweetie are among the ten nominations for Best New Artists.
