Kanye West Slams Grammys for Lack of Nominations

Kanye West

Kanye West was nominated for two Grammys, but was noticeably absent from the major categories, and he’s not taking it lightly. The G.O.O.D. Music mastermind aired out his grievances while on stage.

During his “Yeezus Tour” stop in Phoenix, Arizona, Kanye put the Grammys on blast. “Yeezus is the top one or two album on every single list, but only gets two nominations from the Grammys,” he told the audience (via E! Online). “What are they trying to say?”

Yeezus was named Album of the Year by critics including Entertainment Weekly and TIME.

‘Ye, who has won 21 Grammys throughout his career, is nominated for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song for “New Slaves,” but was shut out of the big categories including Album of the Year.

Over the weekend, he also made headlines for kicking out a heckler at his show in San Antonio, Texas. While wearing one of his Maison Martin Margiela masks, a woman yelled at him to “take it off.”

He had security escort her out of the venue and issued a stern warning. “Do I look like a motherf**king comedian?” he said. “Don’t f**king heckle me. I’m Kanye motherf**king West.”

    @Shutterbug, Pretty sure you’re talking out of your ass. Yeezus was wack but NWTS was the hip-hop album of the year. Born Sinner was good but nothing compared to NWTS.

    The Grammys are a fluke. Timbaland didn’t get nominated for producer of the year, and neither did Rick Rubin… But Dr. Luke and another guy who’s contribution was next to negligible and irrelevant was? And Say what you want about Kanye, MBDTF and Yeezus are metacritic top rated albums among the list of top rated of all time.

    Not surprised, another Grammy snub.

    They effed up yet again. I dont understand how NONE of his albums have won album of the year. How did College drop out lose to Ray Charles? How did Late registration lose to U2? How the eff did Graduation lose to Herbie Hancock? How did Fearless beat I am Sasha Fierce?

    The grammy’s are a crapshoot, always have been always will be.

    F##k Kanye, what about Janelle Monae’!!! He is an incredible artist that boost about himself too much. Janelle Monae’ did not get a nomination period and had one the most interesting and diverse albums of the year. Do you hear her complaining. True genius does not boost it humbles itself is just true to the genius!!!

  21. spazattack

    He really needs someone in his life to tell him to shut the fuck up and stop acting like a child. How about we take his 2 noms away and see what happens then? I understand he feels snubbed, but he still got nominated for something! Be grateful and go back to your child.

    I believe Kanye West is one of the top 100 greatest rappers in hip hop history and music history. I believe Kanye West is one of the top 100 greatest producers in hip hop history and music history. Kanye West has made 3 great, classic platinum-selling albums in The College Dropout, Late Registration, and My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy which all 3 albums got great critical reviews, great universal acclaim, and great commercial success by selling over 1 million copies for all 3 albums. Kanye West’s The College Droput album got a 87 percent on Metacritic, Kanye West’s Late Registration album got a 85 percent on Metacritic, and Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album got a 94 percent on Metacritc. Kanye West has won Best Rap Album at The Grammy Awards four times, and Kanye West has won 21 Grammy Awards in his music career. I believe Kanye West is a great producer, a good rapper, a great music artist, and a musical genius right now.

    Even though I am a hardcore fan of Kanye West’s music, I know that Kanye West is a jerk, a idiot, very arrogant, very selfish, very cocky, very crazy, and a stupid asshole. One of the main biggest reasons why Kanye West’s Yeezus album only got 2 Grammy Award nominations at the 2014 Grammy Awards is for the simple reason that Kanye West has burned bridges with a lot of Grammy Awards voters who are not hardcore Kanye West music fans and who are not hardcore hip hop music fans. Kanye West’s Yeezus album got great critical reviews, great universal acclaim, got a 85 percent on Metacritic, and sold over 500,000 copies by being certified gold. Even though Kanye West’s Yeezus album got great critical reviews, there were a lot of biased mainstream hip hop music fans, and there were a lot of biased underground hip hop fans who hated Kanye West’s Yeezus album. Kanye West’s Yeezus album was an alternative hip-hop/electonical/acid rock/progressive rock-n-roll/classic rock album that was completely different from his other hip hop albums and the album didn’t have a mainstream hit single on the radio.

    Kanye West needs to realize that he is not the only great music artist who has been rejected by the Grammy Awards. Ever since Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, The Grammy Awards have been very biased against Kanye West’s great music. The Grammy Awards have always been very biased, very racist, and very prejudice against all rappers when it comes to rappers winning Album of The Year, Record of The Year, and Song of The Year at the Grammy Awards. Outkast and Lauryn Hill are the only hip hop artists to win Album of The Year. There have been a lot of great hip hop albums over the last 30 years that have come out and never been nominated for Grammy Awards. Nas is one of the greatest rappers of all-time and never won a Grammy Award. Kanye West needs to understand that just because you don’t win a Grammy Award all the time doesn’t mean that you are not one of the best music artists in the music industry.

    I bet half the haters listen to cnn reports/that tv show report of kanye of what he did wrong and never actually listen to kanyes words. Murderers get trials to prove their innocence..everyone still on that taylor swift thing which he didnt do for himself and did months after his momma passed…how many of you have never made a mistake in ur life…nobodys perfect except whenyou do it only a few ppl lmow..when he does the whole world know and punishes him for yrs

    Kanye really needs to chill the fuck out. If he’s upset about being snubbed he needs to have a nice chat with his peers who didn’t vote for him to be nominated.

    Everyone is getting over Kanye. Real geniuses don’t run around screaming what they are to everyone. They let their work speak for it’s self. Something he’ll never be able to do because he is such a cry baby.

    I don’t know what has happened to Kanye but I liked him a lot more when he was nothing like he is now.

    He does it each year but this time around it’s pretty special, cause he doesn’t even deserve the 2 he got. Yeezus completely blows and it’s sad to say, cause MBDTF was perfect to me.

    @Kanye nutz swingers. This is the most complaining dude in Hip Hop. He making money, he has a job that he can express himself daily and all he does is cry and complain. He’s fulla shhht and needs come off that mountain. His music not for the people. It’s for Kanye. He’s elevated himself beyond the people. Long Live A$AP was the best album of the year. Cole was cool, but like someone said earlier. It gets the snooze award after a month. Wale was nice, but it became boring after a week. Make music we can relate to, not some heavenly from the Godz music only he can associate with.

    Kanye set the bar in hip hop in the early 2000′s he brought a sound that was unparallel to any other artist of that time even today you still here artist using his sound perfect example Drake and his muse 40. they’re making millions off his sound his ingenuity. people will only appreciate it when one of these lesser minds mix and mash up what he has created,a new form of hip hop that is YEEZUS. Jay tried and failed to reach that complete hip hop sound that is Kanye West. people he backs up his genius, sports stars react like this all the time. did you forget hip hop is a sport nowadays? it’s all a game and Kanye is the Ronaldinho of this sh*t!

    Looking at the photo above, he looks like a homeless man. I think he likes hiding behind his mask and using an alter ego to spout his foulness. just a little big man in my opinion.
