Check Out The 2013 Grammy Nominations List

What were some of your favorite albums to drop this year? Well the Grammy committee has come together once again to collectively decide the nominees for the 2013 Grammy Awards. A lot of fresh faces on the list including Frank Ocean, Wale, 2 Chainz, Miguel and Elle Varner. Even Nas racked up a few nominations. Nicki Minaj on the other hand wasn’t nominated for a thing.
