After a brief hiatus from blogging, Lil' Wayne has returned to the net to speak on his eight Grammy nominations and why he thinks he won't win one.
Headlining the Grammy's with the most nods under his belt including "Album of the Year" for Tha Carter III, the New Orleans-based rapper revealed his skeptiscm about his chances of win.
"I'm nominated for eight Grammys and that's crazy. Do I think I'm gonna win any? No," Weezy said. "I think it's just enough to nominate me or something, they'll probably give me one next year, actually."
While claiming politics may be partly responsible for his belief that he'll return home empty handed, Weezy also cited the tough competition from Jay-Z, T.I., Kanye West, Nas and more.
"Not because of politics only, because there's a lot of great people in the categories," he added. "Honestly, I don't think I could do what they do, but people say differently."
As previously reported by SOHH, the Grammys will have a strong hip-hop presence this year as artists like Lupe Fiasco, Young Jeezy, Ludacris, OutKast and more are up for awards. The 51st Grammy Awards ceremony is scheduled to air Sunday, February 8, 2009 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
