Grammy Best Rap Performance 2023 Nomination and Winner

Best Rap Performance Grammy Nominations

    by DJ Khaled Featuring Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, John Legend & Fridayy

The single “GOD DID” was one of the few highlights of the album released earlier last year. The performance by Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z and John Legend was some of the best of the year, making a strong case for the Grammy. They each had their moment and meshed well with each other along one of the only well-produced tracks on the album.

If any song was to get a nomination from the horrendous DJ Khaled, it had to be this one. Out of this list, it is definitely top three along with “Vegas” and “The Heart Part 5,” however, it is not a winner.

  • Vegas
    by Doja Cat

Doja Cat knows how to make hits and even more so makes better music. In this single for the Elvis soundtrack, she absolutely delivered what was needed. It also helps that the singer/rapper was backed by a soul-type production.

This blend of production and Doja Cat’s performance led to one of the most popular songs in 2022, with a lot of popularity stemming from the viral social media app TikTok.

“Vegas” was not only popular among the masses, but it also has the prowess of Doja Cat’s versatility to back it up as one of my top nominations to win the Grammy.

  • pushin P
    by Gunna & Future Featuring Young Thug

“pushin P” had people in a chokehold at the beginning of 2022 and for a good reason as it is super simple and catchy. Gunna had everyone using the phrase “pushin P” for months with almost anything they were doing.

However, this song is not impressive by any means and merely made the list off of sheer popularity. There is no chance that this song should win and if so, would only add to the argument that the Grammys are a joke.

  • F.N.F. (Let’s Go)
    by Hitkidd & GloRilla

This song has every right to be here as it was GloRilla’s big hit single which kickstarted her popularity. It’s a catchy song and the underlying message of women’s independence is a great message to embed in your music.

However, this song is just not as lyrically advanced as “The Heart Part 5” or at the same caliber as “Vegas” or “GOD DID.” With all that being said, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Grammy’s did pick this song.

As one of the hottest singles in 2022 from an artist that came out of nowhere there’s a slight chance. Even if “F.N.F” doesn’t scale to the other songs, it would most certainly get people talking if it was to win.

  • The Heart Part 5
    by Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar ended his long hiatus from the music industry with his feature on Baby Keem’s “family ties” in 2021 and won the best rap performance at the 2022 Grammys.

With the release of this lyrically packed 2022 single that was paired with an equally as meaningful music video, it wouldn’t be a surprise that Lamar does it again and wins in this category two years in a row.

In my opinion, “The Heart Part 5” has the strongest case to win the Grammy for the best rap performance.

Winner of Best Rap Performance

Kendrick Lamar won for the best rap performance with “The Heart Part 5.” Really no surprise, easily the best performance by any artist this year.
