Congratulations to Damian Jr gong Marley on his fourth Grammy Award when. After his fourth the Grammy award-winning selection social media was full of mixed emotions because of the Marley dominance over the past years. Freddie McGregor is one of the veteran artist that stepped forward to congratulate Damian Marley on his Grammy Award. In my opinion you should not blame the artist simply analyze the process. In a nutshell people pay to become a member of the voting fraternity the fraternity makes is selections the selections are made by those who have paid their dues those whose dues are current select the winner of the Grammy so if you'd like to be one of those persons making the decision simply pay to become a member of the voting fraternity.
The album Stoney Hill is another well deserved Grammy Award winning album in my opinion. It's a very good look for all the nominees especially Chronixx and JBoog. It shows how hard these younger artist are working. Common Kings is this years "Who the hell" nominee (no direspect), and last years winners Morgan Heritage made it back into the ranks. Jesse Royal and Queen Ifrica had really good albums this year and maybe should have been given a closer listen but I still don't think they would have beat Damian Marley.
