This what happen when the grammy nominate untalented people like Frank Ocean ,and Jay Z for album of the year,now every one hit Nigga think they music deserve to name as the best .....Black people disgust me with their neverending chase for White Validation.......

This negro has been in the industry for 30+ years....why is he surprised???? Unless he paid someone off or fucked for a Grammy and they didn’t deliver, he needs to stop crying. This is not the era of recognizing real music....he knows this! STFU and do it for the culture!!

Stop trying to tell people how to feel about the fuckery going on in The music industry..... thats why they get away with it nobody does nothing .......everybody stop working and paying bills this illusion will be destroyed .......these people are still rich slaves they jus live a little better on the plantation but we are all trapped ......stop acting like they not doing the same thing to to us as them but on a lower scale..... Mother Nature privided everything so why are we paying for everything? Wake up People Love and Light

This last album was pretty good would have rather seen this nominated but we know it's a pop contest as opposed to quality music.

i don't blame him...jayz got 8 nominations for a an album that flopped and a tour flopping even harder. it must be very frustrating to work hard on a project and have it snubbed.

okay, i actually watched all the videos. i forgot one of the rappers from the group passed away. no i really understand his anger. and they had the group out there performing, probably alluded to that they would be nominated. but just used them then kicked them to the curb. and it sounds like they were trying to push him to vote some new rappers that probably are crap like Cardi B. he's just fed up with the politics. as he stated marvin only got one, bob marley never got one nor did jimmy hendrix!! i never knew that one. and them white rock and rollers stay stealing from jimmy.

Just an observation said...

Camel and the donkey are buying grammys again.

@ 8:38AM no truer words have ever been written. They stay stealing from Jimi, Marvin, Chuck Berry, just to name a few!

Just think about this. Cardi B has been nominated. I blame all of you chicken heads and ruffnecks for this nonsense.

Tribes's lyrics and tracks are untouchable. With that said, Tip knows the game. They've been screwed over for years and their quality has never been recognized by the corporate music industry. The Grammys push garbage.

You are correct, they probably told him beforehand they would nominate the group if they performed. They lied lol

Still, Tip you are OLD you already know how it goes.

I troll it like I see it. said...

He told no lies, but he's been in the game long enough to know the bullshit and quite frankly who still watches those type shows. Remember when Brittney had her breakdown and they gave her ass some pity grammy's the same year Usher won for one of his albums. Q just do what you do for the love of it, you are already and Icon who have already solidified your place among the greats. Fuck the grammy's you know them hoes were never loyal. Your body of work is already among the classics and that's all that matters!!

OK Q you are correct on ALL points but we will still see Black folk dressed and attending these white validation ceremonies. The buck dancing continues. Stop getting played if you know what it is.

He's an OG in the game he has seen first hand how the industry has changed...I don't know why he thought he was gonna be the exception.

Let's keep it all the way real tho, that song and that CD wasn't that great. After that Grammy performance, no one continued talking about them or that song. Guess they promised him a freebie and didn't deliver. Dem da brakes kid. Move on or get back in the studio.

Listen to the Childish Gambino song "redbone" and THEN listen to Bootsy's Rubber Band song "I'd Rather Be With You". It's the EXACT same song. HOW did that ever get nominated?

@ 10:29 not the chickenheads and the motherfucking ruffnecks bwaaaahhhh!!!

@ 12:19 PM, That song was nominated because of its popularity. They overlooked the sampling part. I guess they liked it that much. I hope Bootsy and his Rubber Band, or whoever owns the rights to it, received credit where due.

I liked The Renaissance that Q-Tip put out better than the last one he did with the group. I still play it every now and then. He was robbed on that one. The last Tribe CD was just OK to me. Busta wasn't a bad addition to it, but I stopped listening to it within a few weeks after it was released.

Since they don't recognize talent when it's staring them in the face, the GRAMMYs will NOT be on in my home.

So if he had gotten the nomination, would he still be saying F the Grammy's? Just asking...
