Kanye West Angry Over 2014 Grammy Nominations Snub

After spewing his vitriol at Nike
(and then apologizing),
has a new target — the Grammy committee. The
Chicago rhymer is not happy that his celebrated album, ‘Yeezus,’
only garnered two nominations for the 2014
Grammy Awards
. Yeezy expressed his frustration during a
show in Phoenix, Ariz., on Tuesday (Dec. 10).

West received two nominations for Best Rap Album and Best
Rap Song for ‘New Slaves.’ But during his concert rant, the
G.O.O.D. Music leader wondered why he didn’t receive more
nominations. “‘Yeezus’ is the top one or two album on every
single list,” he told the crowd. “But only gets two
nominations from the Grammys. What are they trying to say?” We
don’t know, ‘Ye? But we understand his frustration. The rapper’s
‘Yeezus’ album did make it near the top of many critics’ year-end
lists, including our Best
Hip-Hop Albums of 2013
roundup. Over his decade-long
career, West has been nominated 52 times and has won 21 golden
gramophones. Unfortunately, he has yet to receive the coveted Album
of the Year award. He’s not the only one upset with the Grammy
committee. K.
and India
went on Twitter to express
their dismay
of being overlooked for Grammy nominations.
What do you think? Does Kanye West have a point? Tell us in the
