(AllHipHop News) Every music fan knows that Kanye West is very outspoken when it comes to music awards, so it is no surprise that the Chicago rapper commented on the fact his latest musical effort Yeezus only garnered two Grammys nominations this year.
During a show in Phoenix, Mr. West addressed his issues with the Grammy committee’s lack of recognition for his 6th studio album even though Yeezus has been named one of the top albums of the year by many music publications.
“Yeezus is the top one or two album on every single list,” said Kanye. “But only gets two nominations from the Grammys. What are they trying to say?’
Kanye is one of the most rewarded Grammy recipients in history. He has won 21 Grammy awards throughout his career which puts him in the top ten all time over Bruce Springsteen, Ray Charles, and Paul McCartney. He has won the Grammy for “Best Rap Album” 4 times. Ye currently holds the record for most wins by a Hip Hop artist. Jay Z is in second place with 17.
This year Kanye West is up for two nods – Best Rap Album (Yeezus) and Best Rap Song (“New Slaves”).
