Jay-Z’s ‘D.O.A.’ and ‘Run This Town’ Snag Early Grammy Awards
Jay-Z is already a big winner at this year's Grammy Awards snagging two awards for Best Rap Song for his hit 'Run This Town' and Best Rap Solo Performance for his announcement of the 'D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune). This brings the hip-hop legend's career Grammy total to 10, counting his awards for collaborative projects with wife Beyonce, Rihanna, Linkin Park, as well as solo efforts.
Jay, who was recognized twice in the Best Rap Song category, beat out Eminem, T.I., Mos Def and newcomers Drake, who was nominated for the buzz single 'Best I Ever Had,' and Kid Cudi. Both Drake and Cudi had the pleasure of working on Hov's chart-topping 'Blueprint 3' album, but couldn't top the rap mogul at this year's Grammy Awards.
