California legend Snoop Dogg is fed the f**k up. Amid the jaw-dropping bomb The Recording Academy detonated last Friday (Dec. 7) with the nominees for the 2019 Grammy’s, some fans were relieved that their fave was granted a coveted slot. However, some felt hip-hop was slightly in many categories. Typical contenders like Drake, Kendrick Lamar and The Carters dominated categories like Record of the Year and Album of the Year. Budding phenoms like Cardi B and H.E.R. are also a contenders for those categories.
It was then revealed that problematic and estranged rap icon Kanye West was also nominated for his first Producer of the Year award and that’s where Uncle Snoop drew the line.
Despite the official Grammy website stating the West Coast hip-hop icon has been nominated 16 times, he says it’s been 19 nominations, but Snoop has yet to take home a Grammy. However, his response is his signature, unbothered mood. “I love my Soul Train Award and all my BET awards. Have a nice day.”
Fans have interjected saying the award show is rigged, but this isn’t the first time the Doggystyle emcee has flipped the middle finger to the Recording Academy and it probably won’t be the last.
Peep his full response below.
