(Nicki Minaj performs at the 2012 Grammy Awards)

Hip-Hop had an interesting night at the 2012 Grammy Awards. Kanye West was one of the big winners, taking home three awards just in the pre-telecast, including Best Rap Album for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The Throne won Best Rap Performance for “Otis” from Watch the Throne, and yet neither of them showed up to accept their awards. Nicki Minaj and J. Cole were contenders in the coveted Best New Artist slot, but they both lost to indie darling Bon Iver. Check out the full list of hip-hop winners from the 2012 Grammys.
