(AllHipHop News) The nominations for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards were announced this week, and some performers were not pleased they did not see their name among the lists of trophy hopefuls. Two of those artists are Maybach Music Group representatives Wale and Omarion. MMG’s head honcho Rick Ross sat down with Power 106 to talk about his team getting snubbed.
“I’m not looking for the Grammys. I’m not even tripping on that,” said Ross. “We all know one thing about Wale. Wale is one of the greatest artists, greatest songwriters. His track record is impeccable, and his music speaks for itself.”
Omarion was more vocal about his disappointment than Wale. The former B2K member sent out a series of tweets claiming his song “Post To Be” with Chris Brown and Jhené Aiko was one of the greatest R&B collaborations of all time.
Twitter users did not agree with O, and he was hit with a torrent of backlash on the social media site. However, Rozay is backing up Omarion’s suggestion about his hit single.
“That ‘Post To Be’ is one of the biggest records. That Omarion platinum plaque is so beautiful on our wall, so don’t sleep on the homie. When you’re a true competitor, and that’s what your goal is then you just know how to come next year,” added Ross. “I know an artist like Omarion. He’s been acknowledged on these levels before.”
