Infographic: Grammy Awards break down Lecrae and Best Rap Performance competition

The 2015 Grammys introduced Lecrae and the hip-hop juggernauts he’s up against to win the Best Rap Performance award with a nifty infographic this week.

Lecrae won the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Gospel Album, but he enters this stacked hip-hop category as an underdog. Eminem has won 13 Grammy Awards, Drake has sold twice as many albums as all of Reach Records’ artists combined, Kendrick Lamar should’ve won Best Rap Album last year and Childish Gambino’s song “3005” has over 35.5 million views on YouTube, compared to 1.2 million for “All I Need Is You” (though it dropped nine months later).

Of course, as tough as the odds look, Houston hip-hop legend Bun B doesn’t believe Lecrae will come up empty-handed. Here’s that infographic.
