On Tuesday the hip-hop mogul received three nominations for the upcoming 2022 ceremony, raising his career total to a whopping 83 nominations
Jay -Z was previously tied with legendary producer and composer Quincy Jones, who has been nominated 80 times.
However, with the release of the official nominations list of the upcoming 2022 ceremony, with 3 nominations to himself, the 51-year-old surpassed his contender.
2 of JAY-Z’s nominations came from his contribution to Kanye West’s album, Donda, which earned him a spot in the Album of the Year category. Hov’s song on Donda, “Jail,” is also up for Best Rap Song.
The Father of 3 was nominated again in the Best Rap Song category for his collaboration with DMX and Nas, “Bath Salts,” which landed on the late rap star’s posthumous album, Exodus, earlier this year.
