Kanye West: First Winner of Both a Best Hip-Hop & Christian Contemporary Album Grammy
Kanye West and the Grammy Awards have a sorted history. The music savant has taken home over 20 of these awards in his career. Almost all of these wins are in the Hip-Hop albums, song, or music video category. Well now, he can add a new one to the mantle – Christian Contemporary Album of the Year with Jesus is King.
West beat out Christian music worship titans Hillsong United along with Tauren Wells, Cody Carnes, and We the Kingdom.
It’s interesting that they didn’t throw him up against the Gospel/Urban categories, but alas, here we are, Kanye the CCM artist. This would make him the first artist to have a win in both cateegories.
