What is Grammy?
Grammy is the highest honor that can be given to an individual in the music industry. They are awarded annually by The Recording Academy, a membership organization of music professionals from across all genres and regions.
The Grammy’s mission statement says it best “to recognize artistic achievement and excellence in the recording arts & sciences.”
Grammy Awards date back to 1959 when they were first televised on TV with some small awards such as Best Classical Performance or Most Promising Female Vocalist. It wasn’t until 1967-68 that big stars started getting nominated because people began watching them on TV.
The Grammys are awarded in the following categories Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song or Collaboration of the Year, Best New Artist, and Producer Of The Year.
In addition to these eight main awards, there is also an award for Classical Crossover albums as well as a Hall Of Fame Award for those who have been inducted into it by their peers.

Moreover, his other album called Mastermind was also nominated for the Grammy Awards and this album sold many copies.
In his career, he faced many controversies. One such controversy is related to blending two different types of genres together (Rap and Reggae).
This scandal resulted in some not being able to appreciate or accept his talent without the blending of the two genres. He was also accused of letting ghostwriters write for him and not being able to produce his own music.
This made Rick Ross a controversial figure in the industry, but he continued releasing more music with no changing what people were accusing him of doing.
In 2013, there was a video that went viral where someone claimed they had just seen Rick Ross at their pool hall smoking marijuana (which is illegal).
The controversy became even bigger when footage surfaced from an interview on BET’s 106 & Park which showed him holding up pounds of bags of weed while talking about how much money he makes off selling drugs.
