Grammy Snubs: What the Stars Are Saying (Or Not Saying)

Grammy nominations are out Jay-Z leads the pack again 0 By Eleanor on 30 November 2017- 15 h 35 min Music Jay-Z

The Hip-Hop community is quite happy with the nominations at 2018 GRAMMYs since it's the first time when artists from the genre have got so much recognition in the main categories.

Several artists took to social media to air their grievances at being ignored in the nominations, including Vince Staples and Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest. Q-Tip also took personal affront at how ATCQ wasn't nominated after giving them a spirited performance previous year. Q-tip said referring to, referring to Tribe performing previous year shortly after the death of Phife Dawg. Y'all don't give us no f*ckin' nominations.

"Yall think it's some sort of caveat because this is the first time that no white man is ever nominated in no major categories and sh*t", Q-Tip started.

Last February, A Tribe Called Quest were joined by Busta Rhymes and Anderson.Paak for a show-stealing Grammy Awards performance that included "We The People", "Movin Backwards", and splashes of "Can I Kick It?" and "Award Tour". Thank You 4 Your Service' last November and it was hailed by critics and fans alike as one of the best of the year.

In the series of five videos he went onto express his anger at the awards show, criticising trustees for omitting "the most cultured black group out". This the last Tribe album. What happened? And we don't get s**t, for that album? That's all we stood on. "We been doing this s— for f—— years!" "That's what we represented", Tip said. "I'm sick of ya'll f**king Grammy niggas, man", he added. "It stands with everyone else's [expletive] that's up there", Q-Tip said. Y'all don't even give Bob Marley a Grammy. I'm exhausted of f*cking biting my tongue all the f*cking time and trying to be nice and sh*t I'm going to say the sh*t that n*ggas always be saying and don't be f*cking saying it. Marvin [Gaye] only got f*ckin' one. Motherfucking right I'm hot. "F*ck y'all Grammy ni**as, f*ck y'all!"
