Rapper Nas Wins His First Grammy After Being Nominated 14 Times

Nas has won his first-ever Grammy Award, ending a long-running streak.

The rapper has been nominated a whopping 14 times, but he has finally come away with a win at the 2021 award ceremony.

He was honoured for his 13th studio album, King's Disease, to claim Best Rap Album over D Smoke (Black Habits), Jay Electronica (A Written Testimony), Freddie Gibbs and the Alchemist (Alfredo), and Royce 5'9" (The Allegory).

Fans have flocked to social media to praise him for finally nabbing the music industry's top honour.


King's Disease debuted within the top 10 when it was released in August last year, making it Nas' fourteenth top-ten album in the United States.


Despite only just getting a Grammy, that's a pretty impressive track record.
