Drake is currently on tour in Europe, but his absence could be connected to another reason.
The entertainment website suggests the two nominated rappers, as well as Pop star Justin Bieber, are skipping the Grammys because they believe the awards are “out of touch” and “irrelevant.”
Kanye has been very open about his criticism of the Grammys.
Neither album received nominations because Ocean did not submit them for consideration.
In addition, Kanye complained when Beck’s Morning Phase won the 2015 Album of the Year trophy over Beyoncé’s self-titled LP.
“I just know that the Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We ain’t finna play with them no more,” said Kanye at the time. “And Beck needs to respect artistry, and he should have given his award to Beyoncé.”
Drake has also expressed his apathy for the Grammys.
Drake’s Views is among the projects competing for Album of the Year as well.
