With Chance The Rapper getting the Rookie Of The Year nod, Seattle’s golden child also graces the long-standing magazine as its “Man Of The Year” preceding 2 Chainz. Sitting down with Kim Osorio, he speaks on his Grammy nominations, the “white rapper” stigma, and more. A choice quote:

What if you win the Grammy for Best Rap Album and Kanye spazzes and says it should have gone to someone else?
Then he’s got a point. [In the Best Rap Album category], we’re up against Kendrick, who made a phenomenal album. If we win a Grammy for Best Rap Album, Hip-Hop is going to be heated. In terms of [that category], I think it should go to Kendrick. He’s family. TDE is family, and I understand why Hip-Hop would feel like Kendrick got robbed [if he didn’t win]. I’m not trying to compare albums; I think you can make an argument for both. With that being said, I am a huge supporter of what Kendrick does. And because of that, I would love to win in a different category. We obviously had massive success on commercial radio, and I think that, in ways, The Heist was a bigger album, but Kendrick has a better rap album.
