Kanye West and Frank Ocean

Kanye West Will Boycott Grammys If Frank Ocean Isn't Nominated

  /  10.23.2016

Kanye West has a message for the Grammys.

While performing “Wolves” at the “Saint Pablo Tour” in Oakland, Calif. on Saturday (Oct. 22), Yeezy stopped to offer a stream of consciousness rant about Frank Ocean and the Grammys.

“The album I listened to the most this year is Frank Ocean’s album,” said West. “I’ll tell you this right now: If his album’s not nominated in no categories, I’m not showin’ up to the Grammys.”

Recently, reports surfaced regarding Ocean’s ineligibility for a Grammy this year. It seems Blonde and Endless were both not submitted for consideration.

Despite that, ‘Ye believes the Grammys have an opportunity to change their rules to have Ocean involved in the show. He says they’ve previously done something similar with Lady Gaga.

His message also came with a plea to his fellow musicians. “As artists, we have to come together to fight the bullshit,” he said. “All we need is a fair shot.”

This comes just days after Yeezy called out Jay Z and said that Watch the Throne 2 will never happen and shortly after Mr. West announced a second leg of dates for the “Saint Pablo Tour.”
