VIBE’s 10 Favorite Grammy Award Hip-Hop Performances of All-Time

They’re baaaaaaack!

Although it feels like we just celebrated the 53rd Grammy Awards, it’s already that time again. On Sunday, the best of the best in the music business will get all dolled up, hit the red carpet, and walk into the Staples Center in Los Angeles to celebrate the 54th Grammy Awards. It sounds like it’ll be quite the show, too. In fact, with Nicki Minaj set to perform, Drake set to present an award, and a host of other hip-hop stars set to be in the building, we’re already predicting that some pretty crazy things are going to happen.


Not that we’re not used to it. In the past, there have been a number of different hip-hop acts who have taken the stage at the Grammy Awards. And a lot of them have made their mark by doing it. So to help get you ready for this year’s festivities, we decided to take a look back at 10 of our favorite Grammay Award hip-hop performances of all-time. These artists rocked the stage and left us talking about their live shows the next morning. Let’s just hope this year’s performances have that same kind of impact.—Chris Yuscavage
