With the exception of Flo Rido in this group (it should have been Fabolous), this category is a pretty decent list considering Rap had such a weak year (especially after last years, star packed rap categories). The greatest inclusion to me was the great Q-Tip album, "The Renaissance". Unfortunately for Q-Tip, he probably won't take this one home. My guess is that the return of Eminem (who seems to have lost his umph, if you will), will most likely be rewarded, seeing as the Grammys LOVE him, to a point of annoying obsession.
Will Win: Eminem "Relapse"
Should Win: Q-Tip "The Renaissance" or Mos Def "The Ecstatic"
