Even though the 51-year-old rapper and billionaire didn't release any of his own albums, Jay-Z became the most-nominated artist in Grammy history. After receiving three 2022 Grammy Awards nominations for 2022, the rapper has passed Quincy Jones, with whom he was previously tied at 80 nominations. For Kayne West's "Donda," Jay-Z won one Grammy for Album of the Year, and two for Best Rap Song, for DMX's "Bath Salts" and West's "Jail."
Paul McCartney, a former member of the Beatles, currently trails the rapper with 81 nominations after receiving two more for 2022. Jay-Z has received 23 Grammy Awards during his career, including Best Urban Contemporary Album in 2018 for "Everything Is Love" and four Best Rap Song awards, including "Empire State of Mind" and "Savage." Last year's Grammys saw his wife, Beyoncé, make history by becoming the most-nominated woman and most-awarded vocalist in the show's history.
