Grammys 2019: JAY-Z Tops Kanye as Rap Artist With the Most Grammys

With the Carters’ win for Best Urban Contemporary Album for Everything Is Love at tonight’s Grammy Awards, JAY-Z has become the rap artist with the most Grammy wins. Previously, Jay had been tied with Kanye West, both of whom had won 21 awards.

In addition to Best Urban Contemporary Album for Everything Is Love, Jay was also nominated for Best R&B Performance for the Carters’ “Summer” and Best Music Video for “APESHIT.” (The Carters did not win either award.) At last year’s ceremony, JAY-Z was notably shut out, taking home zero of his eight nominations for 4:44.

Kanye lost his sole nomination—Producer of the Year, Non-Classical—to Pharrell Williams.
