Lil Wayne Earns 3 Nominations At The 2023 GRAMMY Awards (And 2 More)

Lil Wayne Earns 3 Nominations At The 2023 GRAMMY Awards - And 2 More

The nominations for the 65th Annual Grammy Awards have been announced and Lil Wayne has received a total of three.

Wayne was nominated in the “Song Of The Year”, “Best Rap Performance” and “Best Rap Song” categories all for his work on DJ Khaled’s “God Did” single, which also features Rick Ross, JAY-Z, John Legend and Fridayy.

Both Khaled’s God Did and Jack Harlow’s Come Home The Kids Miss You albums are nominated in the “Best Rap Album” category, and Machine Gun Kelly’s Mainstream Sellout project is nominated in the “Best Rock Album” category. I believe this means that if any of these albums win, Weezy will receive a Grammy award as he is featured on them.

For the ceremony, the 2023 GRAMMYs will be taking place February 5th from the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California. You can see what competition Tunechi has after the jump below. Good luck Tune!
