Frank Ocean, along with, Jay-Z, Kanye West, The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, and fun. lead with six nominations at the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards announced Wednesday night. The awards will be handed out on Sunday, February 10 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Check the jump for a complete list of the nominees.
Two more joints off Intuition’s upcoming project, I Ruined These Songs For You. Check the tracklist after the jump.
The first is a song by The Black Keys called “Psychotic Girl.” The other is a classic Portishead track called “Humming.” I barely had to rearrange these songs at all, as they just had perfect 16 bar spots to rap on in them originally. Both of these songs knock in the car, and when I conceived the concept for this project these two songs instantly came to mind. “Psychotic Girl” was easy to draw inspiration from, as we’ve all had a psycho lady in our lives, and “Humming” is my interpretation of the song as a sordid one night stand between two former lovers.
We’re currently 2 days away from the official release of one of my favorite albums of 2009. But for those that haven’t heard it, you can do so by clicking the image above. The Black Keys meet Pharoahe Monch, Ludacris, ODB, Nicole Wray, Q-Tip, Jim Jones, RZA, Billy Danze (M.O.P), Mos Def, Raekwon and more.
