The annual Grammy Awards kicked off last night to every music lover’s delight. Aside from a wowing performance celebrating hip-hop’s 50th anniversary from rap veterans like Missy Elliott, Big Boi, and Lil Wayne, to name a few, a few other MCs with this respective status went on stage to deliver their own set of tunes.
Outside the Crypto.com arena, Jay-Z, John Legend, Lil Wayne, Fridayy, and Rick Ross came together for the last supper to perform “GOD DID.” The song is a collaboration between the Roc Nation CEO and DJ Khaled. According to Khaled, they “did an 8-minute song on the Grammys!” The song comes off his 13th LP, which carries the same name. After its release, “GOD DID” shot up to the 17th spot on the US Billboard Hot 100.
That night, the 4-minute record was up for three titles: Song Of The Year, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song. But, unfortunately, it didn’t win any of the categories. Instead, the nominations left Jay-Z and his wife, Beyonce, in a tie for breaking the record for most Grammys. Together they have 88 nominations, but Bey took the trophy home that night with 32 Grammy awards.
Other notable performances were Quavo’s tribute to Takeoff and Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, and Chris Stapleton‘s to Motown.
