Sunday January 31st marked the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Now seeing that I mainly talk about Reggae on this site Im not gonna go thru all the winners, but as far as Best Reggae Album the winner was Stephen Marley with the Album Entitled Mind Control Acoustic. Ukraine . Other albums that were nominated for this award were:
Awake – Julian Marley (Ghetto Youths/Tuff Gong/Universal Republic)
Imperial Blaze – Sean Paul (VP/Atlantic)
Brand New Me – Gregory Isaacs (Tad’s Record)

I think the Grammy panel needs to do something about airing the one Reggae portion of the show cause a foolishness that… #imjustsaying

Congrats goes out to nominees and winner!!
