This past year has been an amazing one for black music. With countless memorable projects across all genres and sub-genres of hip-hop and soul, 2021 was a highlight year for both emerging and classic artists.
On Sunday (April 3), the 2022 Grammy Awards commenced, featuring many moments highlighting the best to do it in our culture. Nas killed it on stage with his first-ever solo performance at the Grammy Awards, performing a medley of fan favorites, old and new. Hip-hop pioneers Grandmaster Flash, Melle Mel, and Scorpio reunited as they were publically awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for their contributions to music and pop culture. And emerging rap superstars Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow joined forces to give their first-ever live performances on the Grammy stage.
This year boasted some major wins from last year's hardest-working hip-hop artists. From Tyler, the Creator taking home his second trophy to Kanye West picking up his record-breaking 24th award, the 2022 Grammy Awards were a testament to the outstanding quality of music that hip-hop has had to offer this past year.
Here are all of the hip-hop winners at the 2022 Grammy Awards.
