The word glaring has appeared in 201 articles on NYTimes.com in the past year, including on Feb. 6 in “How Questlove Pulled Off the Grammys’ Crowd-Pleasing Hip-Hop Tribute” by Joe Coscarelli:
Putting Grandmaster Flash next to GloRilla, LL Cool J alongside a TikTok-dancing Lil Uzi Vert, and DJ Drama on the same stage as Flavor Flav, the producers of the show celebrated the forthcoming 50th anniversary of the first hip-hop party with a fittingly sprawling and unwieldy tribute that mixed deep cuts with pop smashes and recognizable icons with overlooked innovators.
… Of course, some artist absences were more glaring than others. There was no MC Hammer, Puff Daddy, Lil’ Kim, 50 Cent, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West or Drake, who has taken to boycotting the show himself. (Jay-Z, who rapped along from the audience, performed later in the show with DJ Khaled instead.) But this was always going to be the case.
“I knew that 12 minutes to tell a 50-year story was going to be tricky,” Questlove said, fondly recalling the “’12 Angry Men’-esque battle” that took place with the producers Jesse Collins and Fatima Robinson. “But with my generation of hip-hop, it always starts with the lists and the debates — that’s the fun part.”
