Can someone explain how an album that came out in 2012 is a nominee for the 2014 grammys?

Not that Macklemore doesn't deserve it, but someone needs to learn to count.

But like... why? academy awards get away with covering all of a year, doing October - September just seems really weird.

Rap Album:

Jay-Z: Magna Carta
Kanye: Yeezus
Kendrick Lamar: Good Kid m.A.A.d City
2 Chainz: BOATS II
Drake: Nothing Was the same

I'd say Big Sean would be nominated but not sure.

Did Drake even make the cutoff date?

EDIT: Never mind. Didn't see Drew's post.

It's also not the 2014 Grammys, it's the 56th Annual Grammys.

I wonder what alternative album nominations are going to be like. Also, I'd love to see Deafheaven get a nod for Best Metal album.
