Grammy Family Pt. 2: No ID Live From His Grammy Seat

| January 31, 2010 | 0 Comments

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”

Congrats to the Big Homie.  Here he is live from his Grammy seat.
