I know there was a lot of chatter about Kanye West being noticeably absent from tonight’s Grammy Awards, but there was another Chicagoan, who was actually in attendance, that won right alongside of him. Actually, a three time winner. Ladies and Gentlemen, please applaud Dion Wilson for taking home three Grammy Awards this evening – a very impressive feat for one of the best to ever do it.
Best Rap Solo Performance – Jay-Z “D.O.A.”
Best Rap Song – Jay-Z feat. Kanye West & Rihanna – “Run This Town”
Best Rap/Sung Collaboration – Jay-Z feat. Kanye West & Rihanna – “Run This Town”
