Rapper Kanye West hopes his album Late Registration comes out on top at next year's (06) Grammy Awards because he would go down in musical history.

No all-rap disc has ever triumphed in that category at the Grammys, making West's nomination a potential record breaker.

And the hip-hop star is confident his music will thoroughly deserve the historical accolade.

He tells MTV.com, "(Late Registration) is really important not just because it was successful this year, but 10 years from now they'll look back at what it did for the game.

"The usage of strings, all types of instrumentation, the musicality of it, the fact that we sat and waited two weeks to rent a real harpsichord to put on Diamonds (FOR SIERRA LEONE) - that's one instrument!

"Now let's take all the songs that were on there and add up the amount of work that went into it; this is the real thing. We put so much pain, blood, sweat, tears, time and money into it, so for it to be nominated is great, but for it to win would be the seal of the work. It really needs that.

"It would be the first album in Grammy history that was all rap that won for Album Of The Year."

Racist Hollywood-(a referrence to the people who control its publicity and images put forth) will give him a victory! his selfish yetdebassing" personality coupled with the fact that he spouts the "N"-word..throughout his songs.., add the fact he's a college dropout who "rapped" himself in a million dollar career, and boast a lifestyle ( which 95%+ of his people never enjoy)..Hes the Perfect "Poster Boy" for keeping the majority of Blacks impoverished and out of luck..Who better to glorify and give "vistory?" too,,,than an arrogant selfish man who's 2004 freshman effort , a so-called "christian rap" [ Jesus walks] was laced with profanity.Kanye song was about as much christian' rap As Larry Flint placing bible scriptures on a nude models butt would be christian porn"..or planting hemp seeds in a church yard, watering it w/ holy water and praying over it daily would make it 'christian pot"..he'll win it, for the wrong reasons.. then he should go marry a white girl to complete the image .."I aint saying hollywoods full of Gold diggers, but they'do promote dumb-step-n- fetch loud N....!to keep this image of blacks alive!

West is typical: He's running his mouth about the "hard work" he's doing, but he isn't actually producing anything of value. West, and other like him, destroy everything they put their hands on -- music, politics, governments, etc. It's sort of like an anti-midas touch. And, yes, someone earlier mentioned that West might have a mental problem. He does, they all do.

I wonder if Kanye will thank you Shirley Bassey for "Diamonds are Forever" which "Diamonds from Sierra Leone" is completely based on. In fact according to an article I read by Roger Friedman, Kanye has sampled so many actual real singers, the whole record is a con job. I hope that when the time comes, the real talent in the industry will prevail!

I can't wait until Kanye says he'll be bigger than Jesus Christ. We all remember what happened to John Lennon after he made this comment.

What is with this wanna be , he must have rocks in his head. There is no way this person will ever be top notch in awards he cant get that chip off his shoulder. He needs to get rid of his politics, his piss-poor attitude on america. and focus on his so called music he might be able to get something recorded that might come close to music.

Will it be as affecting or change the way music is recorded or change the way the people will look at the genre of music as Sgt.Pepper's or the White album did for rock? Doubt it.Will it do for rap what Grand Master Flash did for rap in the beginning. Beatles used "real instruments" like harpsicords on the Rubber Soul album. Pocket trumpet for the song , "Penney Lane". Strings on how many songs? Eleanor Rigby,Yesterday,etc. Sitars. Sit down , Kanye. Talented? Ok, I'll give you that. Music changing. Sorry,you're about two decades too late. Check your ego at the door and stand in line behind some of the earlier "greats" that came before you. There is an old adage,[do you know what that word means,Kanye],"Do not sit at the head of the table as you may be asked to take a seat further back".

Ah...One for the history books. West needs to remember blowhard Terence Trent D'Arby and what such ego-driven hyperbole did for HIS career.
