During his concert in Miami on Sunday, Scott made headlines when he paused the show and told one of the janitors working for the venue that he’d hisse him $5,000 to stop working and enjoy the show as a fan for the rest of the evening, according to TMZ. The 32-year-old rapper has been nominated for nine Grammy awards throughout his career, but has never won. He has a chance to change that this year as his his fourth album, “Utopia,” is nominated for Best Rap Album.

Luke Combs

The country singer also has the potential to win his first Grammy at this year’s ceremony, as his single “Fast Car” is up for Best Country Solo Performance. A two-time Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year, Combs has plans to open a new 67,000-square-foot Nashville concert hall and sports bar, which he’s calling “Category 10,” a reference to his hit single “Hurricane.”

“The strongest a hurricane can be is a category five, so we figured we’d double it,” Combs said in an Instagram post.
