Lauren: I just want to watch 2 Chainz’s Grammy acceptance speech. Although, if Drake doesn’t win—this is his 12th nomination, with no wins I believe—emotional thug tears will be shed.

Foster: The fact that 2 Chainz is a Grammy nominee is...something else. Lupe doesn’t stand a chance, and also, he’s probably being targeted for a drone strike right now, anyway. God Forgives isn’t Rich Forever. Nas could win, if only because of the voting contingent. But he doesn’t deserve it for this one. So: *Makes Birdman Hands*.

Ernest: Aubrey Drake made the best album of the bunch. So he should win. Simple. Also, Grammys, please televise this. We all remember watching Kanye, Wayne, and Eminem win Best Rap Album then you guys just stopped showing it. That’s ultra lame. Stop it.

David: I’m not a Drake fan per se but that deserves this one all the way. That said: a 2 Chainz Grammy win would honestly be the best thing to happen ever.

Insanul: When Drake wins this, he better pull out a crumpled ass piece of paper to prove that it’s his Grammy speech he never threw away.

Should Win: Drake

Will Win: Drake

Rapper We Want To See Win a Grammy Just For Their Speech: 2 Chainz.
