Grammy Nominations 2013: Frank Ocean, Kanye West, and Jay-Z Have Six Each

Odd Future member Frank Ocean has six nominations in the 2013 Grammy's along with Kanye West and Jay-Z.

 Frank Ocean has had quite a year in 2012 with coming out, releasing one of the albums of the year in Channel Orange, and being one of GQ's Men Of The Year. To top off the year, he leads the 2013 Grammy nominations with six nods, including Album of the Year, Best New Artist, and Record of the Year. 

The Odd Future member is up against The Black Keys, Fun., Jack White, and Mumford and Sons for the coveted Album of the Year while he's guaranteed to win Best New Artist, a category he shares with Alabama Shakes, Fun., Hunter Hayes, and The Lumineers. 

Kanye West and Jay-Z also find themselves with six nominations each for their collaborative album, Watch The Throne. Both are nominated for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for "Nigga's in Paris," and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for "No Church in the Wild" (which also Frank Ocean is also nominated for). Kanye will also compete against himself in Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance as his track "Mercy" is nominated in both categories.
