It’s that time of year again.

The space between the announcement of the Grammy nominations and the February award show are always an eventful, debate-filled time, especially in Hip-Hop. Rappers have a very complicated relationship with the Grammys, and for good reason: consider the fact that guys like Nas, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg and more have never been awarded music’s biggest prize, and some of the great, defining albums of the genre have been wholly overlooked. Still, it’s Hip-Hop’s competitive nature that brings us back to scrutinizing each Rap and R&B category every year, and here are the 2016 nominations.

We’ll be updating this post as CBS continues to announce the nominees for each category.
