Kanye West Blasts Grammys for Only Giving Him 2 Nominations

Kanye West has taken aim at a new group – the Grammy Awards – during a candid rant at his Yeezus Tour show on Tuesday (December 10) in Phoenix, Ariz.

“And Yeezus is the top one or two album on every single list, but only gets two nominations from the Grammys. What are they trying to say,” the 36-year-old rapper said in a video posted by KISSFM Phoenix.

Kanye received nominations for Best Rap Album for Yeezus and Best Rap Song for “New Slaves” at next year’s 2014 Grammys.

In the past ten years, Kanye has been nominated for a Grammy Award 53 times and has won 21 awards already.

    So humble

  • Canon

    Kanye…Humble…Look it up. Your ego is destroying you!

  • NickyAngel

    Blah Blah Blah

  • Verity

    YEEZUS sucks, no one will ever convince me otherwise. For someone who is anti-establishment why does he care about Grammy’s?

  • Avea

    He’s so f*cking annoying! who would pay a dollar to see this guy live,…… What made up critics lists is he looking at , Yueeez bombed , sales wise and it didn’t have one hit in the Billboard top 100 or 200 , he was nominated because the Grammy’s keep nominating the same 5 to 6 rappers every year, who release a album that year

  • Amy


    He just likes to whine. He’s a big crybaby. He’s been doing this for years at the MTV Video Music Awards.

  • Why

    Why do people still act shocked and comment on his posts. The things he says aren’t shocking anymore. It’s boring and old now. He does it on purpose.

  • Shaniqua

    B_I_T_C_H please! PS Hope Kim is fine

  • STFO

    We should be blasting the Grammys for giving him a nomination… Please, do us all a favor and disappear.

  • Jen

    Just piss off Kanye. You’re pissing me off.

  • Rocky

    Why did he hook up with Kim when he has himself to love? What an idiot!

  • Shamu

    His album is on the charts because of the media hype. Without the Kartrashian hype it would be in the discount bin already.

  • Lilian

    Maybe in Kanyeland (the little world where he is the king and Kim is the queen) he should get all the Grammys. Delusional!!!

  • TrueTeller

    @Rocky That’s exactly what they have in common, an inmense love for themselves. And money. And Attention.

  • Melissa B

    Meh….I was surprised it took him this long to say something. I was waiting on it. I don’t agree w/all the nominations. BUT, thats my OPINION. Just like it’s his OPINION his album is the best. Thats the part he doesn’t get. It’s an opinion, not fact. Obviously, not everyone thinks his album is the best. Should we all cater to him and bow to him and make decisions based on his opinions? I’m not Kim K, I don’t take orders from him, and neither should anyone else! He reminds me of a 3 year old toddler who hasn’t quite realized the world is bigger than him and there are other ppl w/feelings, thoughts, opinions, etc that matter as well. I wish someone would cuss him out and put him in his place!


    I hope he doesnt win, he deserves to lose

    who cares the novelty of awards wears off rather quickly. KANYE needs to take a leaf from someone like Faith Hill she never complains when she isn’t nominated for a major music award or loses on the night of the ceremony to her the most important thing is family as it should be not superficial things like awards and record sales. Kanye for example has never had an album sell more than 4 million copies in the US while Faith has had 2 sell more than 5 million each and her husband Tim McGraw has had five albums certified 4x platinum or better correct Tim’s albums that have done that are 1994′s Not A Moment Too Soon 1997′s Everywhere in large part due to their first duet It’s Your Love 2000′s Greatest Hits 2004′s Live Like You Were Dying & 2006′s Greatest Hits Volume II Reflected. correct Faith’s 2 that have sold more than 5,000,000 each in the US are her self titled 1998 album which is certified 6x platinum and it’s 1999 follow up Breathe which is certified 8x platinum each of which sell between 40 -70k a year as catalog albums accept when a new album is released as her next album will be next year though she hasn’t said anything about it yet

  • So Sorry

    For his daughter North and any future child he will have with or with out Kim. They will live a life of torment and embarasment by peers for the rest of thier lives because of the parents actions.

  • 99point9 percent

    whatever is on his mind — which is usually a lot. Uhhhhhh…that’s so not so!

    “What are they trying to say?!?!” Well, Kayne, they’re not TRYING to say anything. They just as much as said it…your work sux!

  • Yar

    He says he’s the best artist ever, then, why does he needs validation from the grammys?

  • ana

    just plain pathetic. imo it’d be hilarious if he’d get banned from the grammys altogether. maybe that’d teach him not better than anyone else. if he’s best at anything is annoyance, he’s the most annoying and the the most egoistic.

  • Guest

    He’s a racist

  • Diedre

    “What are they trying to say?”
    Ummm…that you’re not nearly as talented and amazing as you think you are.
    Narcissistic twit!

  • Kanhey

    Hey Kanye – stop acting like a giant baby and start acting like the adult male your age says you are.

    You aren’t an artist. You are a spectacle parading as an artist. I pity you to think you think the stuff you put out even grazes the vicinity of art.

    Get a grip.

  • Sashank

    I know he’s not humble but I do concur with his views that the Grammy awards have ignored not just Yeezus, which is a terrific and a terrifying album (seriously, while listening to the album, dark and fatal thoughts erupted in my head) but also Janelle Monae’s Electric Lady, which is equally eclectic musically.

    Do You Know Nominations for 2014 Grammy?

  • arona

    He should be happy that he has 23 awards, come on now “how many awards does it take to know that your wrk is appreciated. ? i think they should put a limit on how many awards are given to one person…how many times can u win best this best that ? give someone else a chance….this is my final say and i am sticking to it…..
