Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West made sure to pay attention to how much love his Yeezus album received at the Grammy Awards nominations concert last week and has now spoken out.
In a mini-rant, Mr. West questioned why his summer release could have been embraced by so many music critics but only receive two nods.
Where’s the Grammy love for Kanye?! At least that’s what the egotistcal rapper is asking. West performed in Phoenix Tuesday night, and during one of his onstage rants, the artist complained about only receiving two Grammy nominations this year-one for Best Rap Album, and the other for Best Rap Song. A paranoid West complained to the audience”And Yeezus is the top one or two album on every single list but only gets two nominations from the Grammys. What are they trying to say?” I don’t know Kanye-maybe there’s a massive anti-Kanye movement going on or something. Seriously, bro, relax! (RumorFix)
