COME ALL YE FAITHFUL

Unconfirmed sources are telling us that the Grammys want to reconcile with Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) and may bend over backwards to accommodate him.

Insiders say that Harvey Mason Jr. recently went on a goodwill mission to visit with the megastar artist, producer and cultural gadfly, listening intently to his G.O.O.D./Def Jam album Donda. It was thought by these insiders that HMJ has made it a personal goal to bring fellow producer Ye back into the fold. We have reason to believe that there will be considerable institutional support for a Donda Album of the Year nomination, a Record nod for “Hurricane” and/or a Song of the Year nom for “Jail.” Naturally, Ye has been submitted for various Rap awards as well.

But there is a particular irony to the possible glorification of “Hurricane” as the track features The Weeknd. XO/Republic’s superstar was of course ignominiously shut out of last year’s Grammys, and his disgusted response led to his team’s decision not to submit his music for consideration this year. After all that, there’s every possibility that The Weeknd could—alongside Ye and fellow feature Lil Baby—win a Grammy early in 2022.
