Nas has never won a Grammy, only nominated
Nas reportedly has 18 Grammy nominations under his belt (he talked about it on Angie Martinez earlier this year). Not one win. His first was in 1997: Best Rap Solo Performance for "If I Ruled The World." Instead, LL Cool J won for "Hey Lover." It seemed like Nas couldn't catch a break. It happened again in 2000, 2003, 2008, 2009, 2010 and now he's up for four in 2013 for tracks from (and the album itself) Life is Good. At some point, he has to win, right?
