American Rapper, Drake has slammed the Grammys for snubbing some artists he thinks deserve to be nominated.
Nominations for the 63rd Grammys were announced on Tuesday night and while some people were happy with the artists selected, others weren’t.
One of the biggest disappointments was the snubbing of The Weeknd by Grammys after he received zero nominations from them despite having one of the biggest chart-topping records this year.
Drake via his Instastory addressed this in a lengthy post;
“I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the impactful music and these awards and just accept that what was once the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artist that exist now and the ones that come after. It’s like a relative you keep expecting to fix up but they just can’t change their ways.”
He continued with;
“The other day I said The Weeknd was a lock for either Album or song of the year along with countless other reasonable assumptions and it just never goes that way. This is a great time for somebody to start something new that we can build up over time and pass on to the generation to come.”
