It was a long time coming, but it finally came. Nas is a GRAMMY Award winning rapper now. Deets on his first Grammy win after 14 nominations that span over two decades inside…

 

In Hip Hop, Nas is considered a rap god. A legend. An icon.

However, after over two decades in the rap game, the Queens native never won a Grammy Award…until now.

During the 93rd annual Academy Awards, the 47-year-old rapper was honored with the Best Rap Album award for his 13th studio album, King’s Disease. In 1996, Nas was nominated for his first Grammy in the Best Rap Solo Performance category for “If I Ruled the World,” featuring Lauryn Hill from his second album, It Was Written. Over a span of two decades, Nas was nominated for 14 Grammys. Now, the emcee is an official winner.

King’s Disease – executive producer Hit-Boy – beat out D Smoke’s Black Habits, Jay Electronica’s A Written Testimony, Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist’s Alfredo and Royce da 5′9” album The Allegory.

Producer Hit-Boy took to social media to celebrate his Grammy win(s):

In 2012, Hit-Boy won Best Rap Song for Jay-Z & Kanye West’s “N*ggas In Paris” and in 2019 he won Best Rap Performance for Nipsey Hussle’s “Racks in the Middle” featuring Roddy Ricch.

Rapper Big Sean was captured on video telling Hit-Boy he won his THIRD Grammy Award:
