Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz collected the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for ‘On to the Next One’ during this afternoon’s pre-telecast ceremony.

The track from Jay’s ‘The Blueprint 3′ album reached the Top 10 on the Rap Songs chart. The award is the first career Grammy for Swizz Beatz, who was also nominated in the category for ‘Fancy,’ his collaboration with Drake and T.I.

Jay-Z’s victory for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group was his third Grammy win in a matter of minutes. His duet with Alicia Keys, ‘Empire State of Mind,’ captured Best Rap/Sung Collaboration and Best Rap Song. The rapper also won three awards at last year’s ceremony.
