Post Malone Reportedly "Kicked Out" Of Hip-Hop Category At Grammys

Post Malone

Cardi B and Post Malone marked major breakthroughs in the previous year, but the rap stars won't compete for best new artist at the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Rules in the best new artist category state that performers can be submit for the category up to three times with the criteria that they've released no more than three records or 30 songs.

For the first time ever, next year's Grammys will allow for eight, not five, Best New Artist nominees.

The 2019 Grammys will air from Los Angeles February 10.

Cardi B, who earned two nominations at this year's Grammys held in January, was not eligible for the nomination because of her previous nominations. That's the same year Post Malone released "White Iverson".

Post Malone has never before been up for a Grammy, but after deliberation, the Academy's members decided he was beyond the level of popularity and success usually reserved for Best New Artist status. It's one of the only nights where artists are awarded for making the best (or mainly the most popular) music in the world. Losing in a vote of music industry players ranging from executives to producers to publicists, the rapper was ultimately deemed ineligible for the nomination. I distinctly remember the shock when Bon Iver scored the Best New Artist award in 2012... five years after the release of their landmark debut, For Emma, Forever Ago.

Initial Grammy votes will be cast October 17, with nominations slated to be revealed December 5.

Malone was also a hot topic at the Grammys meeting for his recent album, Beerbongs & Bentleys, which was kicked out of the rap category and pushed into the pop genre, the source said. Unfortunately for Cardi B and Post Malone, however, they won't be eligible for any of those coveted spots.
