Congratulations to all the nominees. Jimmy Cliff is waaay before my time (I'm a 90's baby) but I do like a couple of his songs and I will check out his latest album soon. I gotta say though, that I was really hoping Koshens, or Mr.Vegas would get a nomination. I thought their album was good as well, but it took Buju Banton a couple try before he got a Grammy nomination (Til Shiloh & Voice of Jamaica were outstanding yet got no nomination)then a couple more tries before he won a Grammy with that masterpiece album Before The Dawn. So Im hoping to see Koshens, Mr.Vegas or Gyptian get a nod soon and a win too.
