Did Jay-Z Get Snubbed By The Grammys?

Did the Grammy committee snub Jay-Z? And why?

(AllHipHop Rumors) Did Jay Z get robbed? No, not like “Ante Up” or anything. The Brooklyn rapper has been a dominant force for over 20 years. And this year, as he approaches 50, it looks like he was a shoo-in to win at least one Grammy for the evening. But that didn’t happen last night in his native New York.

This is actually become a big deal on social media and people are continuing to debate over the idea that Bruno Mars one over people like Jay Z and Kendrick Lamar because they aren’t pop friendly artists.

Now, certainly isn’t to suggest that Bruno Mars is and talented or deserving of his accolades. However, we all know that artists like Beck, For example have been known to win big at the Grammys and not receive the same commiserate pop acclaim. We also know that the Grammys continues to be an old boys type of organization that has not traditionally appreciated hip-hop music. We thought this year was different, didn’t we? Now I am not suggesting that there was some BS going on but Hip Hop performances stole the show last night and all of them were phenomenal. Jay Z was deserving of at least one award last night because his album 4:44 was incredibly dope. It was also incredibly controversial because of the themes it included such as Black nationalism, economics, community, and empowerment for people of color. It also just O.J. Simpson which I thought would make it a shoo-in to win.

Why do we place so much merit in receiving a grammy? Once again we've allowed others to dictate value to us. They throw their brands on bs and easily sell it to us. PHUCK A GRAMMY!!! I can see black artist back in the day just wanting to get their records played. But today is totally different, we can attain fame through social media. Bruno Mars makes 90s style R&B and receives all of the accolades. That should tell current artist something.

This drivel was truly a chore. Intensive extrapolation is not what the average journalist wish to evoke from their readers, but you are certainly a maverick in that regard. Excerpts that show and prove it:
