Mac Miller receives posthumous Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album

Late rapper Mac Miller has received a posthumous Grammy nomination with his final album Swimming. The fifth studio album from Miller, Swimming was released on 3 August – just over a month before he was found dead at his home outside Los Angeles at the age of 26.

The album features the singles “Small Worlds” and “Self Care” plus contributions from Dev Hynes, Snoop Dogg, Syd, and Thundercat among others.

Best Rap Album at the 2019 Grammy Awards. Miller will compete alongside albums by Cardi B, Travis Scott, Nipsey Hussle, and Pusha-T.

Although Scorpion is nominated for Album of the Year, Drake failed to be recognized in the rap album category.

Shortly after his death, former girlfriend Ariana Grande shared a short video of the two together on her Instagram page, writing

“I’m so mad, I’m so sad I don’t know what to do. You were my dearest friend. For so long.

“Above anything else. I’m so sorry I couldn’t fix or take your pain away. I really wanted to. The kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved.

“I hope you’re okay now. Rest.”

“I adored you from the day I met you when I was nineteen and I always will. I can’t believe you aren’t here anymore. I really can’t wrap my head around it. We talked about this. So many times.

Elsewhere in the rap categories, Best Rap Performance will go to one of Cardi B (“Be Careful”), Drake (“Nice For What”), Kendrick Lamar (“King’s Dead”), Travis Scott (“Sicko Mode”) or Anderson .Paak (“Bubblin'”).

Drake and Kendrick Lamar both have two nominations each for Best Rap Song alongside Eminem’s “Lucky You.” See below for a full list of the rap categories at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
