Kanye West goes off over Grammy nominations


The Grammy nominations were announced this week and, as should be expected, Kanye West is not happy with the results. West went off during his show in Phoenix this week. The hip-hop star pointed out his Grammy wins, but alluded to racism on the part of Grammy voters because of his being relegated to hip-hop categories.

“They try to trivialize my words and try to make it seem like my importance as a musician is less important than what it is,” ‘Ye said. “I mean, we can even take a look at some recent nominations that came out. Now I’m 36-years-old and I have 21 Grammys. That’s the most Grammys of any 36-year-old. Out of all those 21 Grammys, I’ve never won a Grammy against a white artist.”

Kanye scoffed at his Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song nominations.

“So, when the Grammy nominations come out and Yeezus is the Top 1 or 2 albums on every single list, but only gets two nominations from the Grammys,” said West. “What are they trying to say? Do they think that I wouldn’t notice? Do they think that some way that I don’t have the power to completely diminish all of their credibility at this moment…People come to me and they congratulate me on those two nominations. F–k those nominations.”

    Kanye is just a rapper with a gigantic ego. Hew doesn’t have a clue as to when to keep his big mouth shut. He doesn’t have the slightest idea what real rappers go through just to get out there. After all he came from a well to do middle class up bringing and never suffered for nothing in his life. He was a child of privilege imitating poor folks.
