Local rap group P.P.T. is in the running for a trio of 2008 Grammy nominations and now the members are just waiting for the final tally of votes to hear if they move on to the next round. So, are the nominated or not? It’s little bit confusing. That’s because the process is like Dancing with the Stars or Dante’s Inferno where submissions go through different levels before getting voted out or moving on to the final nomination. This is the official word from P.P.T.:
We just got word that P.P.T. has been blessed enough to recieve 2008 Grammy Award nominations in three catagories! If the Grammy board votes for us pass this round we could be on the final nomination im shocked to see our names was thought of in the voting process this is huge and we couldnt have done it without you thats the fans, Idol Records, and all the media outlets its not up to us or you it's up to them lets see how far we go....VERB
Best Rap Performance by a Duo or a group - Work It Out- PPT
Best Rap Song – Work It Out – PPT
Best Rap Album – Tres Monos In Love – PPT
Haven’t heard the song? Some good stuff and totally worth a Grammy or three. But that may just be because we’re a little biased. Check out the clever vintage video below.
Update: P.P.T. labelmate, Black Tie Dynasty, has just heard some promising Grammy news as well. (And right after our profile on them!) What are they up to over there at Idol Records? Here’s the note from lead singer Cory Watson:

So, here's the deal. We've just been informed that we've made it past the primary preliminary round for a GRAMMY nomination in 5 categories including Best Rock Band, Best Album(Movements), Pop Song("I Like U"), Rock Song(Tender) and Pop Song("Tender"). This means that we made it into the top 50 in each category and within the next few weeks GRAMMY board members will be placing their votes in all categories and if we make it into the top 6 or 7, we're going to the GRAMMY's!!! Pretty exciting...but it's a long shot. Wish us luck.
