Fasho Thoughts:

  • Nobody cares about the awards at award shows. Wake me up when the performers are announced.
  • Would XXXTentacion be up for all these awards if he hadn’t passed?
  • Will Drake even bother to show up?
  • It’s not even fair letting Drake and Cardi compete with everyone else.
  • Another list of nominations announced and another Nicki Minaj Queen snub. You know Cardi must be loving this.
  • Someone should probably go check on Nicki.
  • The fact that this is pre-taped gives them plenty of time to find juicy reaction shots.
  • If Drake wants to win more trophies, he’ll have to start directing videos or create his own hip hop blog.
