Post Malone Reportedly "Kicked Out" Of Hip-Hop Category At Grammys

Cardi B attends the 2018 American Music Awards at Microsoft Theater

AP noted that Cardi had also been submitted for consideration for a 2018 Best New Artist award (she wasn't ever officially nominated and the Grammy ultimately went to Alessia Cara). However, it appears, Cardi won't be eligible to compete as a Best New Artist contender. The Times point out that the criteria to be nominated for the best new artist award says "any artist with a previous Grammy nomination as a performer would not qualify". The show will be aired on 10 February 2019.

Post Malone has reportedly been removed from the Hip-Hop category at this year's Grammy category. It's one of the only nights where artists are awarded for making the best (or mainly the most popular) music in the world.

As for Post Malone, the 23-year-old rapper also had his name submitted for best new artist at the the 2018 Grammys, and was eligible by the aforementioned standards, but not selected. The vote was reportedly carried out by industry players, and producers - some of whom said the success of Malone's earlier singles like "White Iverson" and "Congratulations", which released in 2015, put him past "new artist status". I distinctly remember the shock when Bon Iver scored the Best New Artist award in 2012... five years after the release of their landmark debut, For Emma, Forever Ago.

The first round of Grammy nominee voting begins next week (Oct. 17), and there will be eight nominees in the BNA category, not five.

The best rap album category is expected to feature stiff competition since the genre has heavily dominated the pop charts in the previous year, with albums by Drake, Eminem, XXXTentacion, Cardi B, Travis Scott, Lil Wayne, J. Cole and Migos being proposed as possible nominees.

The 2019 Grammy nominees will officially be revealed on December 5th.
