Kanye West, All Day

Kanye West May Get His Chance To Bring More Hip Hop To The Grammys


Kanye West went on yet another Twitter rant recently. This time much of the rant was directed at the Recording Academy and The Grammys about their lack of support and complete inclusion of Hip Hop. Kanye wants to make The Grammys culturally relevant again as he feels like those in charge are way out of touch. He also says some artists don’t get the chance to perform because The Grammys like their black people a certain way. ‘Ye tweeted,

“First order of business. We the people need to see Future at the Grammys. We need to see Young Thug at the Grammys. Not just me and Jay in a suit.”

“Neil please reach out as soon as possible so we can make the Grammys culturally relevant again.”

“Has anyone at the Grammys ever heard March Madness??? Yes I have a problem with the Grammys.”

“You like your black people a certain way also. You wouldn’t have Future perform and that man owned the clubs last summer.”

It looks like Kanye is going to get that sit down meeting with those behind The Grammys as the President of The Recording Academy, Neil Portnow, tweeted Kanye from The Grammys’ account saying,

“Hit me up and let’s have that sit down.”

We shall see what happens!

    This nigga said young thug

  • I don’t know about that Young Thug sh*t but other than that, Kanye is right. The Grammy’s are notorious for liking certain Blacks that fit a certain mold. They’re like the Neiman Marcus of this racial profiling sh*t. That being said, I doubt Kanye’s the n*gga to make it blacker though. Seeing as how he’s bunned up with Kim and he’s begging White folks for acceptance.

    • The Legendary Troll

      I doubt they will change their image up. Soon as future hit the grammys, white people will stop supporting it

    • meh.. they like a certain type of white person too tho..

  • The Legendary Troll

    He just wanna meet Kanye in person.

  • VENDETTA

    as always there is a lo of good and bad in what kanye says…(positive) blacks have to fit a certain mold when whites dont….(negative)..young thug….fuck outa here with that shit.

  • WeakSauce

    Ye done lost soon as he said young thug lol

  • Controversy Sells

    Man he may be coocoo but he has a point. They are out of touch and that needs to be fixed asap

  • The grammies are not the hip hop awards.

    they arent the country awards.

    they arent the RnB awards.

    they arent the pop awards.

    they arent the rock awards.

    they arent the jazz awards…

    and so on so forth.

  • Sean Power

    i agree with kanye on this one, I hope he force a change that is needed

  • pauleyPee

    “You wouldn’t have Future perform and that man owned the clubs last summer.”… So true. Preach. lol

  • The Wackness Vs Dope

    i mean damn dude you dont see hard energy rave music or trance or anything thats not overly commercial and appealing to the largest demo either on the grammys, theres no point having esoteric shit on something that will be watched by the masses when like a small % of that masses know what that shit is, it’s perfectly understandable to see why they opperate the way they do as a business. you feel so strongly about it start your own damn awards. i’m a fan of kanye but lately just seems dude just wants attention cos his musics lacking what it used to be. BE ABOUT it dont TALK ABOUT IT. .

  • Q.

    SMH Kanye must’ve missed Kendrick shut down the Grammys–and he’s about as unconventional an artist you’re going to find in Hip-Hop today. Of course the Grammys are out of touch, but putting the cape on for Young Thug and Future, aka the Mushmouth Twins is an automatic L, myn!gga. …Have a Lexapro and a seat! #KOONYE
