The rap nominations for the 58th Grammy Awards already have timelines going from zero to 100 rather quickly. With Kendrick Lamar — last year’s unsung hero — bagging 11 nods this go-round, Drake, Fetty Wap, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and J. Cole also join the ranks with several shout outs from the Academy for best rap album of the year, best rap performance and best rap/ sung collaboration.
Here was how timelines responded to the nominees.
Kendrick diehards couldn’t keep their emojis under control over the news.

Other Twitter civilians also tweeted their disappointment with the Grammy nomination lineup, as well.

#GRAMMYNOMS The fact that Fetty is being considered for rap Grammy’s makes my skin crawl.
— Chris (@LookOberHere) December 7, 2015
I’m really surprised Drake’s mixtape is apparently Grammy worthy… I feel like theres way better rap albums that dropped this year
— bet. (@dartheazy) December 7, 2015
Even if Kdot wins all 11 grammy’s, it still won’t make up for when Macklemore robbed him, Jay Z, Yeezy, and Drake for RAP album of the year.
