Unpacking The GRAMMYs (feat. Sidney Madden and Rodney Carmichael)

Object Of Sound

This week on the show, we're taking a critical look at The GRAMMYs. We bring on NPR’s Sidney Madden and Rodney Carmichael to talk through the systemic inequities of an event that each year decides which musician can be called the “best.” Why do we still care about awards that trail seemingly years behind the culture? Plus, Hanif, Sidney and Rodney share which artists they think should be recognized, whether or not they take home an award this weekend. For the playlist of songs curated for this episode visit http://bit.ly/oos-grammys/ Show Notes / Sidney and Rodney are the co-hosts of NPR’s Louder Than A Riot. Sidney says Beyoncé’s 2017 Grammy performance, good kid m.A.A.d. city, Lemonade and My Dark Twisted Fantasy have changed the trajectory of music. Rodney cites Kendrick Lamar’s 2016 GRAMMYs performance, a 2008 Sly Stone Tribute and Little Richard’s speech at the 1988 GRAMMYs as iconic moments in awards show history.Sidney is excited for Kaytranda and Jhené Aiko.
