not a Lil Wayne fan, but He owned 2008. It is simply the true necessary history, no other possibility.
+Bob Hill 04-09
+Bob Hill Carter 1 made him break out into the spotlight and C2 is where he fucking demanded respect from everyone
you could even argue 13 and 14 when he was releasing singles for c5. what's funny about those years is that's when people really started hating on wayne yet everyone was bumping grinding, belive me, and loyal and everyone knew Wayne's verses
2008 and 2009 was all his
Armeezy Kunzu Justin oiled
My favourite thing about Lil Wayne’s songs is that when I listen to them years later, I get references I never understood. He is a true lyrical genius.
Except for lollipop, that song is just dumb
Yes he is💪🏽💪🏽 the 🐐
This will always be my favorite win for a artist at the Grammy's.
Agreed with u bro even now 2018 I still remember it like today
I got Kanye for college dropout a lil bit ahead of this but barely
COLLEGE DROPOUT YE THE SPEECH , MOMENT , & EVERYTHING..
Paptrik I don’t :)))
When you win against Jayz and Nas.. then you know you’re a 🐐🔥
Kev’s Uploads facts💯🐐
That's Jay and nas way past their prime.
Free, but not quite not really with jay z. Jay has been consistent throughout his whole career it's past his prime yeah! because music has changed it's youth driven. thats all. not "way past" But the car to three was a classic and that's one of the best rap albums ever so I don't know if you're trying to say the carter 3 wasn't that good that album was amazing
Lil Wayne was absolutely on fire that year. There was no way he was gonna lose that year.
Lil Wayne Dominated 2006 - 2010 man...he was just in a league of his own!
Yup he's great but I wish Lupe Fiasco won it ... The Cool is an all time classic
Carter 1 is his best album
Tha Carter 2004 - No Ceilingz 2009
Man, 2009 seemed just like a great time for rap, just pure talent and fun
A well deserved win. Shout out to the nominees all of them are legends.
Wayne was totally right when he said the Grammys will nominate him for everything possible but only give him Best Rap Album as a concession.Tyler won "Best Urban Album" when he didn't qualify for mainstream categories when his album wasn't even a rap album, and told the press after the win what "urban" actually means.
Wayne was in next door waiting lol
If I was sitting in the crowed I would of knew already and cried
1.3 mill first week? He was at the door cause he either boutta leave from getting robbed or win it, no in between 😂😂 legend
@J Wizdum 1M but yeah still
@Vile Ink you right, it was only 1 mill 5 thousand, not sure where I got 1.3 from haha but yeah, still insane numbers
08 was the BEST year in rap, Lupe made a beast album, t.I made another good ass album, jay made a classic and so did Nas. Honestly I feel like they all equally deserved it.
***** that was the last good year to me
How bout 2010 with drake album, kanye, nicki minaj, and lil wayne
Cliff Harmon Rebirth only had a few good songs on it, i am not a human being sucked, my beautiful twisted dark fantasy is overrated and was not as good as college dropout, graduation or late registration. 2010 was not better
ihatebitches Drake is a good artist, maybe not rapper. IANAHB was ok, and Kayne is a genius man, you need to listen to his lyrics.
Damn, they did good with their picks, all of those albums were amazing
Man they was all killing it that year 💯
Sempre sera o melhor pra mim
Wayne Deserved this C3 was a classic all amazing beats lyrics Features .
bro american gangster wipes tha carter iii
The Cool was literally one of the greatest albums of the year.It's one of the hip-hop albums with the most meaning that I've ever listened to.At least it was a nominee, I suppose...
I can’t wait to win an award one day. I just need one to make it all worth it.
Damn. What a number of great rappers in this category. 2008 was such an underrated year for rap.
Best acceptance speech I’ve ever seen. Model of the perfect acceptance speech. Take note, ppl
im so happy for waynehes come a long way
É o maior rapper da minha geração
Legendary moment in hip hop
lil wayne was on his grind man he deserved that award he was the hardest workin man in hip hop in 07 -08 no one else worked as hard and had as many haters and fans
Being able to go platinum in this digital age is quite an accomplishment.
2 veterans (Nas and Jay) and 2 rappers with one of his best projects in his careers (Lupe and T.I.). But Needles to say Wayne owned 2008 so props to him.
Damn these albums were the soundtrack of my freshman year in college. Such good music right there
We have to agree all those 5 albums were amazing!
Wayne from 2007-2011 was EVERYWHERE and every song. in like a year and half he was on 200 songs with people. TWO FUCKING HUNDRED. dudes a goat and deserves everything he has. he has worked so hard since he was 12 and spit bars for birdman and impressed him enough to get a record deal at that age and out under birdmans wing.
Thank God:: 14 years later ::he received honorary Award while he’s still alive ❤❤❤
Look at the nominees and how they appreciate wayne winning.. Nas, Jay Z celebrated Wayne with standing, showing respect! Amazing! I miss the times that awards mean something...
All classic albums. Times have changed.
2009 a great year for hip hop Lots of great albums
All those albums came out in 07/08.
That is a great rap album list...holy shit, all 5 of those albums were fantastic and ALL mainstream at the time.....how times have changed...
quick classy speach...not all dragged out and getting emotional on stage
Saint Wayne The Greatest Ever!!
The only memorable moment I'll ever have in this Grammy 2009 award is when Blink 182 were back together again :) that's when i started taking my clothes off once again..
808s wasn’t even nominated? like i know it’s not a rap album but there has to be some kind of recognition for it, that album is a masterpiece!
This moment changed the game forever
That's his moment of vindication!!! I've been rooting for Wayne since day one...
Man all those nominated albums were 🔥 🔥 🔥
wow the nominations were actually really good
he was so excited he knew that he was gonna win that he was just a few feet away from the stage other than just coming up by the stairs from the crowd
For the people, like DRiVASiAN, who don't know how the nomination process works, LISTEN UP. The Grammy eligibility calendar starts on Oct 1 and ends Sept 30 the next year, then winners are announced in Feb. So for 2009, albums that came out Oct 1 2007 - Sept 30 2008 were eligible and the award is given in Feb 2009. That's why it seems like albums from 2 years ago are getting Grammys. And Grammy Awards are based on quality, NOT based on Billboard, that is a completely different award.
Back when Wayne was UNTOUCHABLE
Look how healthy he was back then plus his dreads was healthy in strong too.
Nah u can c his dreads was thinning from the braids
Probably because he was young as fuck 27 yo
@Robert Dumitru right really he was 26 cause he turned 27 at the end of that year
It’s called aging it happens
The stance of this man, the charisma he doesn’t even need to talk
Ohh how nice it’d be to go back 10 years in time to when life was simple & music was just right
William Cody you ain’t lying
2022 and I’m still here like man wayne was the goat of 2008 and gave me so much memories 💯
The grammy's don't go by the fiscal year the grammys are open to nominations I believe from October to October. Kanye's album came out in 2010 November which means that it was eligible for the 2011 Grammys. Also that album deserved to win more than any other album nominated. In the past 10 years there hasn't been a better Hip-Hop album, or an album that swept Album of the Year recognitions from magazines. Kanye's album should have should have won Album of the year.
Wayne was standing like he knew he was gon get it 😂😂
He literally dominated 2008. C3 was huge
when nas and jay z get up to clap for you, you know you deserved the award.
2008 was a fun year😭😭😭🤘
2008-2012 ... those were tight days...such nostagia
Well done lil Wayne 🥰
Lil Wayne Already knew he was gonna win he was probably waiting down there for ever
Nothing but legends were nominated back in 09 Now its a bunch of one hit wonders you wont hear about in a couple of years
no matter what you say, wheezy deserved that one
Look at the greates standing ovation for the another great, i love this mad respect. Dang i love them !
1:34 through the end is my favorite part...... that jump goes down in grammy history !!
Wow the list of nominees though. I miss that era
Notice how he was waiting backstage for the award? That's confidence. Nigga was the best at the time. 08 was his year.
From the Carter 2 to Carter 3 nobody was stopping him
He just performed, That's why he was at the backstage
Mulki Lair But he stayed back there. That's the point. He knew he would win.
The nominee's albums were all fire
Wayne was almost on everybodies projects around 2008 to 2011
Damn look at all those nominees, now thats talent.
These were some LEGIT albums
Bruh the amount of good albums that were nominated is insane 😂
2008-2013 were Great years for Lil Wayne
Rest in peace Static Major. He should have lived to see this m
Wayne absolutely dominated 2008
That was a tough year boy..all those albums were fire!
That Lil Wayne & Santana era is a good place in HipHop. He had a run like Future , but had over 50 features . His daughter was so young . Bro did his thangz #BigPapi
winning a grammy gotta be the most proudest day in someones career ever..
Paper Trail didn't win but that album was crazy good. Best T.I album if you ask me
I Never Realized It Was Stiff Competition This Year Wayne Still Took Home Hard Work Pays Off.
Paper trail was dope as hell too I miss 2008-2009 very much
He actually has tho. Recovery was the second best selling album of 2010 & 13th of 2011 & all his albums after 2002 went number one AND Platinum. Can't say the same for Wayne.
man, i love lil wayne
Lil Wayne already standing near stage, knowing he gon win.
all 3 dudes are great artists
All of the rap albums nominated was classicks buut CARTER 3 was extra special
kSwissh007 American Gangster wasn’t no classic😂
iM jUsT hErE tO gEt yOur SuBs uP American Gangster was def better than that Nas and T.I. album lol
@YE2000Ch Nah 2nd place behind Tha Carter III was T.I.s Papertrail album!
@Young Dab yessir
AMERICAN GANGSTER WAS ACTUALLY THE BEST ALBUM ON HERE..
back when every nominated album was fire and even if had a hard time choosing
The best rapper alive at the peak of his powers. Rap was in Wayne's hands or sleeping in New Orleans at this time
Too me they are all awesome artists ALL OF THEM
Damn I miss this Wayne for real
I loveee you sooo sooo much wayne you are truly the goat of rap;)))
Carter III will definitely go down as one of the greatest Hip-Hop albums say what you will about Wayne but dude was in his bag when he made this record
no other genre of music can put woeds together better than rappers
This was a good year of hip hop
wayne has been at it sinse he was 12 yrs. old! he deserves those grammys!!! his flow is hot!!!!!!!
Best album ever made. Mr.carter, lollipop, shoot me down, tie my hands, misunderstood, 3peat,
This was an amazing year. All the goats in one category.
Prime wayne was something else... 2007-2013 was completely OWNED by him. Most underrated rapper ever. Saying he isn’t top 5 all time is the stupidest shit ever
He isn't underrated,he is one of the highest selling rappers ever and for a lot of people one of the goats
Classic speech word for word
2008-09 was lil Wayne’s era and best era
No one ever talks about the fact that lil Wayne never gave Static Major his props for producing and writing lollipop. Static wrote songs for a lot of legendary artist.
Shenyae Turner Wayne shouts out static all the time in other places, he didn’t have to here. And I saw your other comment saying it’s Wayne’s biggest song...it’s not
Lil Wayne wins a Grammy but yet he’s not invited to the Grammy awards show for this year 2021
I love how he sticks his tongue out when they mention the nominess
I think it was a category full of the new genearation's best rappers....it was well deserved on Lil waynes half
you can't tell anything about wayne's winning this award to 25 years hip-hop listeners,ı love nas and jay too, but wayne deserved it hard, the carter III was untouchable
Wow wish i can go back to 2008 sophomore in high school life was good and the music was great
