Snoop Dogg Puts The Grammys On Blast After Receiving Multiple Nominations But No Awards

Throughout his 30+ year career, the rapper has received over a dozen nominations.

Believe it or not, Snoop Dogg has never received a Grammy award.

A couple of days after the 66th ceremony in which The Recording Academy recognized artists for their musical achievements, "The Gin and Juice" hitmaker had something to say that has all of us scratching our heads. In an Instagram post, he threw shade at the Grammys for the multiple times he's been snubbed.

Snoop Dogg Reveals Behind-the-Scenes Generosity: Paving the Way for Legends in Silence

"Snoop Dogg has been nominated for 16 Grammys, but he has never taken home the prize," said the headline in a graphic with a picture of his face that he posted on the app.

As bizarre as it sounds, it's true. After cranking out hit after hit throughout his 30+ years in the music industry, the Long Beach, CA native is Grammy-free.

Following his post, the comment section lit up with support for Snoop Dogg.

"They play TEW much 😒," said Taraji P. Henson, while fellow Los Angeles rapper D Smoke said, "Whoa."

Jhené Aiko went on record suggesting that fact is "insane," and though he has never taken home the prize, gospel recording artist Erica Campbell thinks the famous rapper is "Still a global Legend."

We couldn't agree more.

Still, considering his 16 noms, it's puzzling that he's never been crowned with the honor because his musical prowess continues to drive the genre forward.

In 1993, he was nominated in the category for Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group for "Nuthin' But A "G" Thang," and a year after that, his hit single "Gin And Juice," garnered him a nom for Best Rap Solo Performance.

Snoop Dogg took rap to another level with his collaboration with Pharrell on "Beautiful," which earned him a nomination for Best Rap Song and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.

In 2004, the hits kept coming with the Louis Vuitton creative director. Their song "Drop It Like It's Hot," served him with two noms for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group.

Then in 2008, he received nominations for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Solo Performance for "Sexual Eruption."

Over time, the Grammys has had a controversial past for other infamous snubs from more brothas, including The Weeknd.

In 2021, he announced he would no longer submit his music for consideration after his acclaimed album "After Hours," was slighted, as reported by Variety. Other Black male artists have followed his lead.
