In the album category, Tracey is nominated for Flu Game, while Headie One is nominated for EDNA.

They will be up against Bugzy Malone for The Resurrection, D Block Europe for The Blueprint – Us Vs Them, Fredo for Money Can’t Buy Happiness, Ghetts for Conflict Of Interest, Slowthai for Tyron, K Trap for Street Side Effects, Loski for Music, Trial And Trauma: A Drill Story, and Nines for Crabs In A Bucket.

“It’s been an incredible year in music, congratulations to all of this year’s nominees.”

Voting is open now and will close on 17 August. The ceremony will be streamed on 16 September at 7pm on GRM’s YouTube Channel.
