    I’m going to predict the winners only for the rap category since this site is called Killer Hip Hop.

    Best Rap Performance- Ni**as In Paris

    Best Rap Colloboration- No Church In The Wild

    Best Rap Song- Mercy

    Best Rap Album- they’ll finally buckle down and say here Drake even though Take Care sounded like a comtemporary R&B album.
