With the ever so unhumbled Grammy awards once again looming over us we here at sG have handpicked our choice for award winners this year…Sike this is actually just the thoughts of a staff writer with a great opinion on music…me. Hi.
Anyway enough with the introduction. I can’t for the life of me understand why someone would want to skip such an experience that the Grammy’s provide. In 2017, we saw the Grammy’s take a huge step into the new age. This being that music that is available for media platforms only (i.e. mixtapes) gives anybody with a great project the opportunity to throw their name in the hat for Grammy’s consideration. In other words, Chance will win a couple of Grammy’s this year for an album that did not even go on sale in the traditional sense. Are certain people upset? Yes. Do I give a shit? No. Art should be up to the artist only to sell especially if they don’t have a “label” holding them to the number one reason to sell to make money. But I digress. I don’t want any part of that fight. I’m just impressed with the music we were all blessed with in 2017 which makes this task so tough but also so rewarding to do.
