Kanye West Rants About Receiving Only Two Grammy Nominations for Yeezus
Kanye West is ranting again, and this time its over his music supposedly not getting the recognition he thinks it deserves.
During his concert in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday, fan footage captured the rapper complaining about the lack of Grammy nominations he received for his critically acclaimed Yeezus album. “Yeezus is the top one or two album on every single list, but only gets two nominations from the Grammys,” he told the crowd. “What are they trying to say?”
Kanye’s project received nods for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song, for “New Slave.” However, the disc wasn’t recognized in the coveted Album of the Year category, in which Kendrick Lamar and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are competing against each other.
