Kanye West Addresses Album of The Year Grammy Snub [Video]

Kanye West tops all Grammy nominations with seven, but the Louis Vuitton Don still took the time during The Throne’s tour stop in his hometown of Chicago last night to address the committee’s snub on an Album Of The Year nod.

“Everyone came to me last night like, ‘Congratulations’ because I’m leading having the most Grammy nominations…like we always do at this time,” Kanye told an audience full of roaring fans. “But people are saying, ‘You didn’t have an Album Of The Year or Record Of The Year [nomination]. What I figured out, though, is that’s my fault for dropping Watch The Throne and Dark Fantasy the same year. I should have spaced it out just a little bit more. But don’t worry because me and Hov are gonna keep on making shit. It feels so good to be home!”

Sure enough, ‘Ye dropped My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in November 2010, before following up with Watch The Throne with Jay-Z in August 2011.

      Taylor Swift couldn’t slap a fly. You must like bad music. Go away, shut up & listen to that crappy music.

  • Terrance

    I dont understand how you can say “…if pac were alive” when there were wack rappers out even when he was going hard.

      thats right and he went at every one of them. too bad some chump smoked him before he could finish cuz rap would be different today..

      • Jake Rock

        If you were actually a fan of hip hop and not someone who is trying to act better than everyone because you know about the past. We all know that Kanye is no Pac but your still a faggot. Kanye has put out straight hits, for 6 albums straight now. Music would have been different? Maybe you should check out J. Cole cuz he said, “People say that music changed, it ain’t never been the same.” And Diddy said, “You cant change the world until we change our selves.”
        Finally,

    The reason why Kanye got snubbed is that he was purposely left out so Adele can make a clean sweep out on Grammy night. No album better than “21″ shouldn’t get nominated. The fix is in. Mark my words, The 2012 Grammy Awards will be The Adele show.

  • whoaaa

    is it too much to ask for to get some classic rap albums on the best rap album of the year?
    All 6′s and 7′s, Success is Certain, Section.80 and goblin should have been on there. Carter 4 sucked and so did Pink Friday. Lasers was relatively mediocre and Watch The Throne was dissapointing. Success is Certain was inspiring and lyrically amazing, Section.80 was creative and one of the best concept albums in a while, and Goblin was just different; something that almost no award shows seem to give a shit about. But the thing that really gets me is that Tech N9ne, a veteran in rap who is possibly the most consistently good artist of all time, who never got nominated for anything beside a woody award who finally got mainstream exposure the RIGHT way (sticking to his shit and making mainstream artists do what he wants) did not get nominated. Not to mention that it was one of the best overall albums of the year, let alone one of the best rap albums of the year (second only to MBDTF.) I’m getting ready to be dissapointed next year, when Yelawolf doesn’t get nominated and Slaughterhouse’s next thing doesn’t get nominated either. I’m beginning to accept that the same mainstream, kinda good rappers will be the only people who get nominations. Thank god for Eminem, Kanye & Jay-Z. The only GOAT mainstream rappers as of now.

    first off y ppl still argue and fuss over the grammys and who or what person doesnt get a nod? we all should kno by now tht the ppl tht does the nominations dont kno and dont give a shit about real hip-hop. so stop bitchin and crying bout it.

  • tumi

    lol @ grammy awards for snubbing MBDTF for album of the year & nominating Rihanna on the same category! Garbage albums like Pink Friday & C4 nominated for best rap album (won’t be surprised if either wins though), after what happening to Recovery earlier in the year, why should we be surprised (word up SHA!)

    Dr. Dre should have really released DEtox as seen by the @ noms for I Need A Doctor
