Rapper Post Malone has been disqualified from the nominations for Best New Artist at this year's Grammy Awards after some reportedly intense discussion within the Recording Academy.

Sources told the AP that the New York City native, who celebrated her 26th birthday Tuesday, was submitted as a best new artist contender for the 2018 Grammys but was passed over in lieu of artists SZA, Khalid, Lil Uzi Vert, Julia Michaels and eventual victor Alessia Cara.

Cardi was denied based on the fact that she had received Grammy nominations in the past - best rap song, and best rap performance.

Cardi B has been racking up trophies all year. It's one of the only nights where artists are awarded for making the best (or mainly the most popular) music in the world.

In a vote earlier this month with music industry heavyweights connected to the ceremony, they concluded that success from his 2016 album Stoney and his two hit songs "Congratulations" and "White Iverson" in 2015 made him past "new artist" status.

Essentially, a "new artist" is defined for the GRAMMY process as any performing artist or established performing group who releases, during the eligibility year, the recording that first establishes the public identity of that artist or established group as a performer. The Times point out that the criteria to be nominated for the best new artist award says "any artist with a previous Grammy nomination as a performer would not qualify". Nominees will be announced on 5 December and best new artist will include eight contenders instead of five for the first time. I distinctly remember the shock when Bon Iver scored the Best New Artist award in 2012... five years after the release of their landmark debut, For Emma, Forever Ago.
