When the nominations for the 2013 Grammy Awards were announced last month, there was one name that was mysteriously missing from the list of nominees. Despite all of the success that she enjoyed over the course of the last year, Nicki Minaj wasn't listed anywhere amongst the nominees. Well, actually, that's not entirely true. Her name was included on the list of nominees. But, it was only there because she appeared on a track that was produced by Salaam Remi, who was nominated for the Producer of the Year, Non-Classical award, not because she was actually nominated for an award herself.
