Fabolous Surprised By Grammy Nomination

Posted By on December 7, 2009

    Fabolous recently talked about being nominated for a Grammy Award for his "When The Money Goes" collaboration with Jay-Z saying he was initially surprised he got the nod. According to Fab, he got the news after first thinking he didn't get a Grammy nomination this year. "I think, I'm not a 100 percent sure," Fab said. "If I did get nominated before, I didn't win. This might be my first, I'm not sure. I was waking up this morning leaving Atlanta [when I found out]. I got the news and people were congratulating me before I knew. I was like, 'Oh wow, okay.' Somebody had hit me yesterday like, 'Yo, you didn't get nominated for a Grammy,' like they were pissed off. And I was like, 'Yo it's okay. It's motivation for me to work harder next year.' And then I woke up and I did have a nomination so it's really how it worked out. Somebody on the Grammy board liked the song and even seen the video, we shot a video for it, kinda like a viral thing, the Internet is so big now you can shoot a video…I thought it'd be for 'Throw It In The Bag' or the joint with Keri Hilson, but I'll take it how it comes you know. A nomination is a nomination and I'm always appreciative for everything I get, whether I win or not…" [Fabolous Talks Grammy Nominations For Jay-Z Collab – Watch Here]
