  • On Monday’s (Feb. 11) episode of #EverydayStruggle, Nadeska, Wayno and DJ Akademiks open the show recapping the winners and the biggest moments of the 2019 Grammy Awards. The crew pays its respect to the hip-hop winners of the night, including Childish Gambino, Drake, Cardi B and more. The trio also debates whether or not the Grammys got right this year, and end the Grammy discussion talking about Drake’s inspirational acceptance speech that was cut off by the Grammy committee. Later in the episode, Ak and Wayno share their thoughts on the situation 21 Savage’s mom faced while trying to pick up her Grammy tickets. According to 21’s co-manager, Meezy, 21’s mom was being withheld from the tickets to the award show until he sent out a complaint via Twitter that eventually resolved the situation. The crew also provides an update on 21’s case against ICE and his current legal status. After this topic, the crew speaks on the Gucci sweater that trended last week due to its racist imagery, and comment on the actions of T.I. and Soulja Boy, who have stepped forward to boycott the high end Italian brand. To conclude today’s episode, the trio share their thoughts on Tory Lanez’s confrontation with up-and-coming Canadian artist Dax. Apparently Tory was not a fan of Dax’s diss record towards him and pulled up in person to ask for an apology from the unsigned rapper.

    It’s as simple as this. Cardi doesn’t write her own lyrics. Cardi is a pop artist. Hiphop never will accept artists that don’t have a pen game.

    People that say "oh I don't know if it will materialize" speaking of the boycotts, people always say this and say that. Why can't you worry about you and not want to support a brand that don't support you. It comes down to the prestige of being attached to whiteness (ie money)

    The Fresh Prince won the first rap Grammy ever. It's been downhill ever since. They're clearly listening to different things. With that said, out of all the nominees, I bopped Invasion of Privacy more than any of the other albums nominated. Congrats Cardi. Women win.

    In regards to Tory Lanez pullin' up on Dax - music that puts more emphasis on the 'message' seems more difficult to enjoy (what we hear in that J Cole style) - it's hard to imagine people really dancing to or rocking out to that "conscious-message" in the music. How should the fans measure the difference between the MUSIC and the message? Tory seems to be a sore loser.

    I think Drake does care about the Grammy because he still submitting his work it's just like for the people who didn't win he wants them to be happy too. I didn't expect Cardi to win this award but I'm happy she won something because her album was good to me. But it's just not the same as a nipsey hustle or j rock album they were hard and hers was more pop rap so u can't really compare they not the same style

    J.cole k.o.d & Big K.R.I.T 4eva is a mighty longtime shouldve won the grammy for rap album of the year. Jay rock- redemption & lupe fiasco-drogus wave, shouldve been nominated. I dont have a problem with invasion of privacy being nominated due to its hits, album sales and popularity. But shouldn't of won. In the 90s, they used to give it to artist like naughty by nature and the fugees and stuff. Wasnt always the most popular albums. Those albums were up against 2pac, snoop,bone thugs etc. Victory lap and daytona and astroworld were all better as well lyrically and full length album. But also artist like nas- it was written & aquemini werent even nominated too. So the Grammys has a long history of getting it wrong! When it comes to the rap category. Need more hip hop purists! Who actually grew up and know the culture as the panel! That's just how I feel as a person who eats,sleeps & lives rap, for 25 years!

    All the other legends timezone wasn't supportive, LUCKY Cardi's has both 'Me Too Movement' and 'Black Lives Matters' under her sleeves, so this doesn't discredits all the legends, just that timing wasn't supportive and amongst the nominees for the Rap Album, Cardi was more popular, we only know more of her material down here in Africa, just that shows how impactful/influential she was and is...

    her win diminishes the value of "best rap album" when the heavy weights aren't winning. this shows the voting system is flawed, Macklemore over Kendrick, cardi over pusha?? i guess its still good to be recognized, but we need to stop looking at the grammies like they're the top authority of music.

    Hating ass n****s. Cardi is a rapper wether y’all like how she raps or not. She had a better album than all them dudes. I’m sorry. Y’all should be happy a woman won a best rap album. Akademiks fat ass only knows how to hate. One minute he bashing Cardi and the next minute he’s praising her. He does the same to Nicki. I’ll be glad when this show is cancelled. It ain’t been shit since Joe left anyways

    It took 3 mos to record a referenced album. There wasn’t anything on IOP that garnered 8hrs a night in the studio. I’m sorry but it’s an insult to the genre. I would give s song for the win, but not an album. No one has IOP on repeat nor will listen to it 5 yrs from now 🤷🏽‍♀️.

    34:58 The type of people that wear big name brands and logos all over their body are so insecure they seek validation from other people to know that they're wearing certain expensive brands.
    As someone that works in fashion and is invested in fashion, brands like Gucci aren't worth the money if you're buying the cheaper commercial pieces like the t-shirts and flip flops etc.
    They make H&M quality t shirts but charge crazy prices because of a logo. If you want to buy something that will last, buy something like Acne Studios. I don't understand this whole logomania mindset.
