More Life, which reached number one in the U.S. and number two in the United Kingdom album charts, was missed off the list after a source close to the nomination process said he did not submit the record for Album of the Year or Best Rap Album. Lamar has been nominated twice before and lost both times and Jay-Z, whose two-decade career has produced 14 number onealbums, has also never won the award.
According to CBC News, the source said Drake did also not submit any songs from the album for categories such as Song of the Year, Record of the Year, or Best Rap Song.
