Praising Glorilla in NME 100 2023, Kayann-Shian Williams wrote: “In just eight months, Glorilla has achieved more than a typical rising star: after the breakthrough single “FNF” made her a damn hot name in the US rap world, while the follow-up “Tomorrow 2” is the anthem of a party in which she teamed up with her “cousin” and mentor Cardi B — stormed the US charts.
“The last song since then has earned the 23-year-old a Grammy Award nomination in the Best Rap Performance category, proving that the love for this southern hip-hop star is undoubtedly boundless.”
This weekend, Glorilla will perform at the Grammys, where she will take part in the celebration of the 50th anniversary of hip-hop along with Missy Elliott, The Roots, Future, Lil Wayne and many others.
According to Questlove, the performance will be timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the birth of hip-hop, and it will feature a number of artists from this genre, “its past, present and future.”
Earlier this week, Questlove announced that he is one of the curators of the Grammy Award ceremony dedicated to the 50th anniversary of hip-hop.
“I’m really very excited to announce that there will be a special segment on the Grammy telecast this Sunday evening celebrating the 50th anniversary of hip-hop,” Questlove said. “Can you believe in 50? It will be an absolutely amazing moment when some of the genre’s biggest names come together to celebrate the history of hip-hop — its past, present and future.”
Questlove went on to say that hip-hop’s “impact on our culture and our world” is “immeasurable,” and described it as “a driving force in music, in culture.” He continued: “It was a great honor to be the curator of this project together with The Roots and many others who will join us that evening. So you have to see it.”
