As nominations were announced on Tuesday, renowned poet Denzel Curry went in ahead of the anticipated “Grammy snub” conversation, and with only a few exceptions, he claims the Recording Academy missed once more.
For Best Rap Album, Kendrick Lamar, Pusha T, DJ Khaled, Jack Harlow, and Future were all nominated, but aside from the first two, Denzel maintained he could think of ten performers more deserving of nominations, and he did!
He claimed he believes the Grammys are more concerned with money, mainstream performers, and “half-ass s**t” than true culture, citing fellow MCs Freddie Gibbs, Joey Bada$$, JID, and Smino as obvious snubs.
Despite the fact that Denzel’s critically praised 2022 film “Melt My Eyes See Your Future” similarly failed to garner any awards, the Florida rapper claims that his outburst was motivated by something greater than himself.
If the Academy is interested, DC did add one more encouraging note by giving GloRilla her due because her song “FNF (Let’s Go)” is nominated for “Best Rap Performance.”
Harvey Mason Jr., the CEO of the Recording Academy, declared last year that the organisation was getting rid of the contentious secret voting committees, but the snubs are nonetheless particularly painful for those who care the most.
Denzel Curry said, “Glo Rilla deserves it.” “However, For The Rap Album Category, I can Literally Name You 10 Other Albums That Were Actually Good Congratulation to Kdot and Push But All That Other Shit Come On Bruh… At the end of the day, this is all about money, so if that’s what it comes down to, I’m going to get my bread up. Lemme get my bread, to quote the Late Great Kimbo Slice Man.
