He recently revealed this during an Instalive with Nipsey Hussle, and the world has been reacting.
According to him, Grammy awards is a recognition most musicians look forward to getting, so Kanye pissing on it months ago was him sending a wrong message that could affect rising stars.
He added that getting nominated was a huge achievement for him this year, but Kanye rubbished that accomplishment when he did what he did.
His words, “I be really wanting to talk about a lot of the ni**as that’s in the industry, like, a lot of the Black artists, the older n**as who been doing all this sh*t for so long and they be hatin’ on all the young ni**as,”
“If I get nominated for six Grammys and a ni**a I look to that had 22, 23, 24, 25 of these motherfu**ers and I come in here…I wanna get nominated for six this year, I feel like that’s a good number.”
“And this year this ni**a just pissed on that shit. Like, how you think that make the world look at my accomplishment, ni**a? I did all this shit and you pissin’ on shit. That shit be lame. I don’t really like that shit.”
“I feel like this a young ni**a world. Do what the f**k you wanna do. If you wanna go get a hundred Ms, a B, do that shit. Ni**a wanna make music, do that shit. Ni**a wanna build houses, do that shit. Ni**a wanna take over the world, do that shit. Don’t let none of these ni**as tell you nothing.”
