The 2019 Grammy nominations were announced Friday morning, after a brief delay, with Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Brandi Carlile and producer Boi-1da leading the pack this year with seven nods apiece.

Drake, Carlile and Lamar were all recognized in the three biggest categories — Album, Song and Record of the Year — for their most recent albums, “Scorpion,” “By the Way, I Forgive You” and the “Black Panther” soundtrack, respectively.

In addition to the four nominations for his work with frequent collaborator Drake, Boi-1da, a.k.a. Matthew Samuels, earned two additional nods in the rap categories for serving as a writer on Eminem and Jay Rock singles. He also received a nomination for Non-Classical Producer of the Year.

This year, the Recording Academy expanded the number of nominees in the major categories, allowing for eight nominees for Album of the Year, including the three mentioned above, as well as Cardi B’s acclaimed debut “Invasion of Privacy,” the self-titled album from R&B singer H.E.R., Post Malone’s much-streamed “Beerbongs & Bentleys,” Janelle Monae’s “Dirty Computer” and “Golden Hour” by Kacey Musgraves.

In the best new artist category, H.E.R. will compete against Chloe x Halle, Luke Combs, Greta Van Fleet, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith.

“Reflection, reevaluation, and implementation have been the driving forces at the Recording Academy over the past year,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “From convening our Task Force On Diversity & Inclusion and launching our new community-driven membership model, to increasing the number of nominees in the General Field, and to playing a leadership role in the successful passage of the landmark Music Modernization Act, the Recording Academy has reaffirmed its commitment to music creators across all facets of our industry. And, it’s our awards process that has taken a front seat during this evolutionary period to ensure the GRAMMY Awards reflect the ever-changing needs of the creative community. We are proud of this year’s nominations results and congratulate all of the talented and deserving nominees.”

“Every year the Recording Academy voting membership has the biggest responsibility within our entire GRAMMY Awards process due to the fact they vote to determine who among their peers are the nominees,” said Bill Freimuth, Chief Awards Officer of the Recording Academy. “Once again, their votes have produced an impressive list of nominees across multiple genres, promising music fans a spectacular show filled with stellar performances and unique GRAMMY moments.”

The Grammys will be broadcast live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS.

Bhad Bhabie Throws a Drink at Iggy Azalea, Aussie Rapper Takes the High Road – Kind of (Video)

“Dr. Phil” breakout Danielle Bregoli — aka rapper Bhad Bhabie — is still exhibiting some b(h)ad b(h)ehavior. At Cardi B’s FashionNova event, the teenage emcee threw a drink at Australian hip-hop artist Iggy Azalea. The incident, and Azalea’s reaction a little bit later, were both caught on camera.

“What kind of ‘Jerry Springer’– what kind of ‘Whose baby is this?’ ‘Dr. Phil’-ass s–t?” Azalea wondered after she was half-hit by the beverage. “Oh my God. I’m a grownup.”

“Why you so obsessed with me?” the “Fancy” rapper sang a little later, still seemingly at the event.

Azalea recorded some additional thoughts on her drive home.

“I get that this little girl has made a name for herself acting a damn fool on television and online. But I’m a grownup. I’m not about to waste my energy on that s–t or be fighting a kid in a club! Come on!” Azalea said. “I came to get a check. I left with a check. You…look silly. I’m not gonna be scrambling around on the floor for a 15-year-old on the internet.”

“Mama good luck with your career,” she added. “You’re young. You’re gonna look back on this and you’re gonna really feel dumb.”

Netflix has ordered its first musical competition series, “Rhythm + Flow,” which will feature Cardi B, T.I. and Chance the Rapper as judges.

Unlike some of the other musical series, like NBC’s “The Voice” or ABC’s “American Idol,” the Netflix series will exclusively look for hip-hop artists. The multi-city competition will unfold over 10 hour-long episodes beginning in fall 2019.

Auditions will begin this fall across the United States, including the judges’ hometowns of New York, Atlanta and Chicago respectively. In each audition location, established rappers who are from that city will serve as guest judges to help find the best-unsigned hip-hop artists.

Cardi B, T.I. and Chance the Rapper will serve as the main judges, with additional artists and “industry VIPs” to be announced in the coming weeks.

The three artists will executive produce with John Legend, Jeff Gaspin and Jeff Pollack. Jesse Collins, Mike Jackson, Ty Stiklorius and Nikki Boella will executive produce as well. The project is from  Jesse Collins Entertainment, Get Lifted Film Co. and Gaspin Media.
