Will Drake Or Kanye Dominate The 2021 Grammys?

The rivalry between Drake and Kanye West is heating up and really, what would rap music be without rivalries between artists? West dropped his new album Donda on August 29. His new tracks immediately shattered the one-day record on the Artists 500 charts, pulling 410.8 million song streams.

Drake’s new album Certified Lover Boy was released on September 3. He basically lapped Kanye’s record-setting day. Drake pulled a new mark of 793.8 million song streams, ending Kanye’s reign as the champ after a brief six-day stint of wearing the belt. Kanye was second at a distant 230.8 million. That was the widest gap ever recorded between one and two in the history of the Artists 500 chart. It was the record 32nd time that Drake had finished a day in the Number One spot.

With the 2021 Grammy Award nominations due to be announced on November 24, online betting review sites are already posting links to sites that are offering Grammy-related prop wagers.

With the buzz about the Kanye-Drake rivalry reaching a fever pitch, there are a series of Kanye-Drake prop wagers out there for consideration.

A Heated Rivalry

Accompanying his Artist 500 dominance, Rolling Stone was also reporting that Drake became the 16th artist to land at Number One on the Top 100 Songs chart and the Top 200 Albums chart at the same time. 

West held a final listening party in his hometown of Chicago at Soldier Field, home stadium of the NFL’s Chicago Bears, on August 26 before releasing Donda to the public three days later.

The next day, Drake’s album release was teased during a broadcast of ESPN SportsCenter and the September 3 release date was confirmed. 

The battle was on and it didn’t take Kayne long to throw down the gauntlet in an obscenity-laced text that made its way into an Instagram post.

“I live for this. I’ve been f***** with by nerd a** jock n****s like you my whole life. You will never recover. I promise you.” West said in the text. 

Drake countered by directly leaking an unreleased song of West’s which contained a verse from Atlanta rapper Andre 3000. Drake was performing a guest DJ stint on SiriusXM at the time. The track featuring Andre 3000 was recorded to be part of West’s Donda album but didn’t make the cut because Kanye wanted the album to be free of profanity.

Through a spokesperson, Andre 3000 expressed his sadness at being into the middle of this dispute.

“It’s unfortunate that it was released in this way and two artists that I love are going back and forth,” the statement read. “I wanted to be on Certified Lover Boy too. I just want to work with people that inspire me.”

Appearing on the I Am An Athlete podcast, Yonkers rapper Styles P also added his dismay over the feud between the two hip hop superstars.

​​“It’s a worthless battle,” Styles P told the hosts, former NFL wide receivers Chad OchoCinco and Brandon Marshall. “It’s really an egotistical and prideful battle. 

“Think about what we’re doing right now. One guy is saying I’m a certified lover boy. One guy titled the album after his dead mom. God bless the dead, much condolences. Why are we comparing it?”

Kanye vs Drake Props

Kanye and Drake might not be willing to give each other props but betting site MyBookie.ag is happy to give bettors the chance to play some Grammy-related props on Drake and Kanye.

For starters, there’s a wager on which album will gain more nods when the Grammy nominations are revealed on November 24. Drake and Certified Lover Boy are the -150 betting favorites. Donda and Kanye West are at odds of +110.

Who thinks Kanye will perform at the Grammys? Not MyBookie. The betting site is offering -300 favorite’s odds that it won’t happen. Kanye on stage singing at the Grammys is offered at a +200 betting line. 

On the other hand, yes is the -160 betting choice as to whether Drake will be performing at the Grammys. No is a +120 underdog.

The final prop is a real doozy. It asks about the chances of Drake and Kanye performing together at the 2021 Grammys. No is an overwhelming -2000 favorite. Yes is at odds of +900.

Good luck with that one. The producers of the Grammys might have a better chance of getting Donald Trump and Joe Biden to sing a duet on stage.

The Grammys will be presented on March 21.
