This year, Roc Nation artists have together tallied nine nominations, which would be no easy feat for labels other than the highly regarded Roc Nation.  From comedian Kevin Hart and the elegant Rihanna to T.I. and indie-songstress Grimes (not to mention a chipper-looking J. Cole) the brunch certainly seemed like the place to be last Saturday. However, while the atmosphere seemed celebratory, the GRAMMY awards still await us.
