Matisyahu/Wailers Pics, Hip-Hop Nominations at Grammys.. Kanye Gets 8, Jay 5..

Here are some pics from Matisyahu and the Wailers last night at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC courtesy of my sister, What a great time... I'll most likely write a review but I have to listen to it over again on my voice recorder. Highlight of the night was definitely an emotional rendition of "No Woman, No Cry" as the Wailers brought Matis out for his set.. whew!

Shouts to Nah Right for this list of hip-hop nominations at this year's Grammy's. My personal picks would be, respectively: "I Wanna Love You," "Can't Tell Me Nothing," then Graduation.. and someone please tell me why T.I. is even nominated with his cold-garbage album.. smh
