Really Wiz Khaiifa is a joke!

Really Wiz Khaiifa is a joke! He should not be in category as these other artist...I only nomination I agree is "track of year" black n yellow was catchy. Kanyes is the BEST!!! Creativity and lyrics...he should take home @ least 7 of 9!! Who can make an album like "my dark twisted fantasy" besides on some rock n roll shit. And Wayne is soo overrated now sheesh!! I like Ross as well..nice come up. But I think they are missing a few..they giving Wiz too much

Have you listened to any of

Have you listened to any of Wiz's mixtapes or latest album? Please... I think he is a great artist! If he wasn't, then why is he featured on alot of other successful rapper's tracks? Black n Yellow is a great hit but it isnt his best work. It's the song that got his foot in the door. Every artist has one! Wiz is a breath of fresh air if you really know his music. He deserves every nomination he was chosen for.

I really don't see what

I really don't see what difference it makes. Seems like the last BET Awards show was the hip hop awards and seeing how that was a complete waste of my time, I will not be watching or even care who wins. These shows are so ridiculous, you can't even enjoy watching someone perform because their language is so bad every other word has to be bleeped out. A complete waste of time. I will pass. SIDE NOTE: I am sick and tired of watching grown A** men run away with their a** hanging out and Lil Wayne is the worst of them all. I hate watching him, he is a grown man with umpteen kids and this is how he acts. I understand it is entertainment, but them are your freakin underwear. Pull your damm pants and act like an adult. It is time for black men to start having so self respect for themselves and stop acting (yeah, that is what I said, acting) like gangsters. At least the real gangster dressed their butts off, always suited down and dressed to kill. How do you expect people to take you seriously when you walking around looking like you are homeless, but wearing designer clothes..... I'm just say......
