Snoop Dogg, Trey Songz and YG Slam the Grammys for Not Nominating Artists That Best Represent Rap and Hip-Hop
The 2015 Grammy Awards drew some tough critics. Kanye West led the charge, storming the stage when Beck won the the award for Album of the Year over Beyoncé and going on a rant after the show. Most of the rap and hip-hop community felt let down this year, and they weren't afraid to post online about it. Snoop Dogg was particularly upset, citing the fact that some of the genre's greats have less wins then Macklemore. YG and Trey Songz joined in, but they were arguing on a personal level.
"F*ck the Grammys we need a hip hop show for real n*ggaz. n real mcs," he posted. The picture that accompanied the message featured Macklemore in front of Notorious B.I.G., Ja Rule, Public Enemy and more. Another caption stated that Macklemore has more wins than all of the artists, including Tupac Shakur, who has no Grammy awards to his credit. Check the post out below, via Rap-Up.
YG also chimed in on Twitter, noting that his album, My Krazy Life, didn't receive any Grammy love. Best Rap Album nominees included Eminem (who won with The Marshall Mathers LP2), Iggy Azalea (The New Classic), Childish Gambino (Because the Internet), Common (Nobody's Smiling), Schoolboy Q (Oxymoron), and Wiz Khalifa (Blacc Hollywood).
Trey Songz was also unhappy that his album, Trigga wasn't included in the R&B category, saying, "The Grammys shortchange culture for popularity every year."
