The choices for Best Rap Album at Sunday's 59th annual Grammy Awards are pretty spot-on, so it'll be one of the most-contested categories this weekend.

In our continued efforts to make you the hit of your Grammy party, we've assembled some fun facts about each of the best rap album nominees. That way, you'll better know the year's best in beats and rhyme.

Chance The Rapper -Coloring Book
FUN FACT: Chance has the actual Chicago Children's Choir supply uncredited vocals.

De La Soul -And the Anonymous Nobody
FUN FACT: The album's Kickstarter goal of $110,000 was reached in under ten hours.

DJ Khaled -Major Key
FUN FACT: The lion at Khaled's feet on the cover of Major Key is a real lion.

Drake -Views
FUN FACT: Drake sitting on top of Toronto's CN Tower on Views' cover (see above) suggests that Drake is actually 12 feet tall, meaning he dwarfs Robert Pershing Wadlow, the tallest person to ever live, by over three feet.

ScHoolboy Q -Blank Face LP
FUN FACT: Nothing from Blank Face's original recording sessions made the final album. That includes a Pharrell-produced track with A$AP Rocky as, due to delays, the beat fell into another artist's hands.

Kanye West -The Life of Pablo

FUN FACT: Kanye actually did give free Yeezys to fans on Twitter who guessed what "T.L.O.P." stood for before the album's release.
