More Ire over #Grammys Shortchanging Culture for Popularity as Snoop Dogg and Other Artists Speak Out

Snoop Dogg is feeling some type of way about the Grammys. The West Coast rap icon put the Grammys on blast for not acknowledging “real MCs.”

He noted that Macklemore has four Grammys, more than the combined total of rappers including Tupac, Notorious B.I.G., DMX, Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, Run-D.M.C., Kendrick Lamar, Public Enemy, and Snoop himself.

“Fuck the Grammys we need a hip hop show for real niggaz. n real mcs,” declared Snoop, who has never won a Grammy.

Out of all the names mentioned, only Kendrick Lamar has won Grammys, and that wasn’t until Sunday’s ceremony, when he picked up two awards for “i.”

His West Coast brother YG’s critically-acclaimed debut My Krazy Life was noticeably absent from all the rap categories this year including Best Rap Album, which didn’t sit well with him.

Rappers weren’t the only ones feeling wronged. On Sunday night, Trey Songz took the Grammys to task. “The Grammys shortchange culture for popularity every year,” tweeted the R&B crooner.

His chart-topping album Trigga was shut out at this year’s nominations.
