Travis Scott & Machine Gun Kelly React to Grammy Snubs

  /  12.07.2016

The nominees for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards were announced on Tuesday (Dec. 6). While many artists, including Beyoncé, Drake, Rihanna, and Justin Bieber, had reasons to celebrate, others were less than pleased.

One of those artists is Travis Scott. Following the announcement, Epic Records’ Vice President of A&R Sickamore Instagrammed a photo of the Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight rapper on his phone. His caption indicated that he was “reading the Grammy nominations” at the time. La Flame took to the comments, writing: “So hurt man.”

According to Complex, Sickamore would later reveal that he received a phone call from Travis about the Grammys, which was similar to a DJ Mustard conversation he had after YG’s My Krazy Life was snubbed for the 2015 show.

But Scott wasn’t the only rapper complaining about a lack of Grammy nods. Machine Gun Kelly also voiced his displeasure over the exclusion of his sophomore album General Admission.

“im in shock that General Admission didnt get any Grammy nods,” he tweeted. “one of the most pure/real albums of any genre just got swept under the rug.”

With nine Grammy nods, Beyoncé is the most nominated artist this year. Kanye West, Drake, and Rihanna follow with eight.

The Best Rap Album category, which seems to be the one Travis and Kellz are particularly miffed by, features noms for Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book, Drake’s Views, DJ Khaled’s Major Key, Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo, De La Soul’s And The Anonymous Nobody, and ScHoolboy Q’s Blank Face LP.

The 59th Annual Grammy Awards is set to air live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 12, at 8 p.m. on CBS.
