Hip Hop and the Grammy's relationships is based on popularity, it was never about quality
the fact that albums like Recovery and Relapse actually won it shows you that the people deciding it probably didn't listen to the album so much as they listened to the fangirls and groupies , it was Eminem's return album after 5 years, of course it's gonna win an award even if it was a mixed sample of Eminem groaning while taking a shit
to me the Source awards are the only legit department when it comes to hip hop awards, the rest constantly rides on Jay and Eminem's dicks, along with Drake and the rest of his crew
Warren G so underrated as a producer. And Regulate was awesome!
He's one of those guys who has become VERY underrated over time for some reason. He got his props back when he was hot, but he doesn't really get them now for some reason.
Warren's production in the mid 90's was the shit. His first album was classic....honestly I probably played that more than The Chronic or Doggystyle back then.
And his production on The Twinz album, Conversation, was incredible. That's a real slept on gem of an album.
And Indo Smoke still goes! Also loved the few beats he did for Pac back then.....namely Definition of a Thug ....., and How Long Will They Mourn Me.....plus Gotta Get Mine by MC Breed and Pac. To me, Warren was up there with Dre and Quik back then.
