Drake’s Grammy Nomination for “Back to Back” Proves We Have a Love Affair With Messiness


Y’all so damn messy. *shakes head* Yes, it’s official. Y’all realllly love drama. That’s the only explanation for why Drake’s “Back to Back”-a DISS track that Drake probably made in 20 minutes after drinking a cup of Hennessy was nominated for a gotdamn Grammy. Y’all like mess.

Ok. I admit-I like mess too. I can’t deny how fun it was to see two rappers go back and forth about who’s a better rapper, who gets more women, and who’s a punk ass b*tch, but never ever EVER did I think we’d be in this place.

“What place?” you ask. The place where there is a possibility that Aubrey Drake Graham will win an actual GRAMMY for a Meek Mill diss record.

I also have to admit that there are plenty of reasons to make a diss track about Meek Mill. He’s petty, he’s loud, he’s childish, and he airs his dirty laundry out via social media. Not a very likable guy. But I gotta know-just what exactly ARE the qualifications for getting a Grammy nomination?


I do know the Academy receives about 20,000 submissions a year…I can imagine it takes a while to go through submissions and narrow things down. But I can say that I honestly wish I could have been a fly on the wall when “Back to Back” came across their table. Like I want to know what the conversation was about. Did they just laugh incessantly at Meek Mill’s pain, or did they really dissect the song?

I don’t know. I’m just gonna be completely honest and say-I think the Academy is petty as hell. They love mess just like all the rest of us. They got a kick out of Drake embarrassing Meek in front of the entire world, and now, Drake has a Grammy nomination because of it. Anyway…maybe I’m being too harsh. After all, LL Cool J’s “Mama Said Knock You Out” was nominated back in 1990. But again, that just proves what I thought from the beginning-We so damn messy.


What do you think? Should “Back to Back” have been nominated for a Grammy?
