Who should win: Chance the Rapper – Coloring Book
Who will win: Drake – Views

Both Chance the Rapper and Schoolboy Q figured into our Top Albums of the Year, but it would be an upset if either rose above their competitors here. As for DJ Khalad and De La Soul, those are both left-field nominations that either blanket a who’s who of the rap world or award a long career of great music. That leaves Kanye West and Drake as the front-runners, an award West has won four times and Drake has won once. Obviously, Drake’s Album of the Year nomination makes him likely to win, but it wouldn’t be that surprising if perennial Grammy favorite West sneaks this one in.
