Even if you watched this year’s Billboard awards, you may not know that Meek Mill won Rap Album of the Year!  Most of the Rap/Hip-Hop awards were not shown during the air period of the ceremony, which did displease many viewers.

Although there was a lot of negativity towards Billboard’s decision to crown Meek with Rap Album of the Year, many of Meek’s fan stood up for him and for the true artistry of his album, Dreams Worth More than Money.  Billboard disclosed that their winners are not decided by a panel, like many award shows, but rather by a combination of: ranking on the Billboard list, music sales, radio play, and social media interaction.  Through this system, Meek Mill was able to beat out top rappers such as Drake, Future, Kendrick Lamar, and Dr. Dre.

Way to go, Meek!
