Cardi B, Post Malone

Rapper Cardi B, who is making headlines for the wrong reasons, was disqualified as a nominee for the Best New Artist Grammy next year.

Cardi and superstar rapper Post Malone will not compete for Best New Artist trophy at the 2019 awards because the show's organizers say they are ineligible.

Cardi's 2018 summer anthem "Bodak Yellow" was nominated for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song. Grammy rules prohibit previous nominees from qualifying for Best New Artist.

The Bronx rapper lost the Best New Artist award to singer Camilla Cabello at Tuesday's American Music Awards.

According to the Associated Press, Malone was disqualified because his name was submitted for a Best New Artist Grammy in 2018.

The Grammy rules state an artist can be submitted for Best New Artist three times, as long as they have only released three albums of fewer than 30 tracks.

Some lucky artists have earned nominations with second or third albums.

Adding to the confusion: recent winners who earned their trophies after their debut albums include Chance the Rapper and the late Amy Winehouse.

  • iWasteTime

  • Rere

    Cardi can't get nominated for the Grammy's #Nickistoppedherbag
    Lmao...I only said this b/c I am sure she will be brung up.

  • FukkFolks2018

    The committe probably already has someone on there with Atlantic Record connects. It is made up of record executives, producers, publicists etc. Grammy's are pretty staunch. No means no.

  • Renee26

    Ok...so old. She has newer songs on the charts that could be nominated

  • imright

  • Renee26

    These yt men rules are flexible when beneficial to them in some way.... But both artists are no longer new so they shouldn't be in that category anyway ?... Auntie is on fake news this morning

    It was already nominated. Twice. This past Grammy Awards in Feb. Not sure why its part of this story. Had to go and find a root story bc none was linked.

  • Isaidit

    Comparing the ama's to the Grammys is like comparing the corner store to whole foods....no comparison

  • justlooking

    Add my plastic nickel to your pile of 0 dollars.

  • FukkFolks2018

    And nominated for Grammy's. She has done a whole lot in her short ass time on the scene. Folks are haters. I am not even 100% with Cardi here lately. But damn. Folks cant Give credit sometimes. SOME-TIMES.

    "two Grammy Award nominations, three American Music Awards, a Billboard Music Award, two BET Awards, and three MTV Video Music Awards."

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Right, give credit where it’s do. I’m not a Cardi fan like that either but she’s accomplished a lot from summer 2017 til now. #facts

    I can’t knock her hustle. I rock with her

  • Miss Thang

    I really like Post Malone's song that they keep playing on the radio.

  • blue skies

    what is it?

  • Miss Thang

    IDK the title. But it goes something like "you always say that you are better now, better now, but that's only cuz I'm not around, not around. Would've gave you everything, would've gave you everything wooo-ohh"

  • Miss Thang

    lmao

  • Miss Thang

    Amy's win was one of the rare times the Grammy's got it right.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    That's true you really cant take away any of her accomplishments she's only been mainstream since 2017. Not too many artist have had that level of success and accomplishments in such a short time.

  • Chuck

    "Better Now" is the title.

  • Chuck

    "Better Now" is the song's title.

  • ShWa

    Don't Kerrrr

  • Trace da Ace

  • Trace da Ace

    lmao!

  • Judge Mental Will

    They keep changing the damn rules!!! They robbed Whitney Houston of best new artist because 2 years prior she did hold me in your arms with teddy pendergass. Im done with these awards shows. Thats why all the shows ratings are slipping.

  • blue skies

    ok ty

  • Miss Thang

    thanks. i like it :)

  • Sassie

    I like that song too. I like a lot of Post Malone's songs actually.

  • Goodii2Shoes

    The Academy probably tired of incurring increasing liabilities for the atrocities the rapper nxggrs@Atlantic & elsewhere commit in order to get these EASILY purchased nominations/awards. I look forward to them closing the rap category & NPR to stop playing rnb/rap crap like the listeners need one more opportunity or platform to hear how sorely those raprs/singrs failed to sell or entertain their audience (which aren't NPR listeners)
    *goes to complain to npr*

  • Sassie

    LOL....sang it girl.

    Cardi B won the lottery so to speak. For some reason the industry has chosen her to shove down our throats. She is getting the same undeserved accolades as that of legends like Tupac, Biggie, Prince, Missy Elliott, Bruno Mars, Janelle Monae and the list goes on. She is charming and has some talent but it is obvious the people with the big money are buying her the attention. Why? Did they choose her because she is not educated enough in business to keep from getting ripped off as they roll in the bigger bucks? Thus TLC was the prime example of being naive and was hardly paid as compared to who was supposed to be their support.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Who know? I look at it as what’s for you is for you. The industry is a T

  • Goodii2Shoes

    Was on my way out& noticed I'm clearly not the only one who knows the tactics or at least knows to ask these questions.

    In a very uncomical way, I find cardi's situation massively entertaining. Loan someone who can't drive a luxury car & give someone with degraded literacy skills a complex financial agreement to address the car loans & etc. Its made for tv. You hit everything on the head but I'll add that getting a stripper ho to act like a stripper ho who raps is a lottery the label won

  • http://Bossip.com/ ohplease

    AGREE!!

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Those awards don’t stand for sh!t anymore, especially talent..NEXT!

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Those awards don’t stand for sh!t anymore, especially talent..NEXT!

  • Applebootay

    Yay for CHANCE!!!

  • dontgetblocked

    LMAO! and it begins. The blacklisting of this no-talent, wanna be fighter, idiot.

  • Joy King

    The people chose Cardi. The industry keeps featuring her because she brings in money. It’s called business. You might not like Cardi and a lot of people on this blog don’t but me and many others do. I’m cheering every time she wins. Go Cardi B!!

  • SumthinSweeter

    Damn these white folks even misappropriating face tattoos now??? Smh. Looking straight strung out. But I guess that Heroin/Opioid glazed over eyeball half dead look is what's up... (shoulder shrug).

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Oh wells

  • BlackBird

    I miss Amy ?

  • Malcom Flex

    Hahahahahaha!

  • http://Bossip.com/ ohplease

    I do not care either way for Cardi. I do know what business is, how the industry runs. I do question when someone comes from out of what seems to be nowhere. I am one of the folks that is awake, I don't just follow and take just what the industry says this is who you should follow or spend money on. In the long run she is not winning.

    It's so easy for people with no blogging experience to criticize. ?

  • Soon2BWife

    No criticizing, just couldn’t follow. Does reading your blog for like 12 years entitle me to express when the writing seems out of sync? ?????

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Thank you for reading the blog for 12 years. You must know by now that typos are not new to this blog.

  • Jussjess25

    Exactly

  • Jussjess25

    The bitch is no longer a “ new artist” ??

  • Soon2BWife

    Listen, I make them everyday so understood! Keep up the great work! ?

  • FukkFolks2018

    She is doing Spanish language more and more. New song released this week.That is a huge money making arena. She is winning. She has crossed over. She is here to stay. And I'm sore with her these days over her antics. But facts are facts. She is a huge money maker

  • C Mack

    ?? I love you so much.

  • Yetunde

    She wasn’t disqualified, she isn’t eligible.

  • Juliaquan C Spain

    They just now figuring out she's not qualified.....

  • TheOwley

    Why oh why is this woman being lauded. They want to replace Nicki so bad with this garbage individual.

  • MadGyalGem

    GOOD!
