YG doesn't have a Grammy nomination this year, but he does have some of the most loyal fans in music. 

A group of fans, including several children, protested outside of the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles because the Compton rapper's debut album, My Krazy Life, was recently passed over for a nomination. His supporters chanted "YG, why not?" and hoisted signs reading "Honk for YG!" 

The artist responded to the movement, which has been hashtagged #bicket, by emphasizing that he is not behind it. "Damn. This Brazy, my fans protesting about a n***a not bein Grammy nominated. I ain't tell Em do this doe," he wrote.

YG's My Krazy Life was passed over in the Best Rap Album category in favor of Iggy AzaleaChildish GambinoCommonEminemSchoolboy Q and Wiz Khalifa. In response, YG released the track "YG 2015 Flow," in which he claimed, "I got album of the year still."
