Tyler the Creator Calls out Grammy Voters


Last night after winning the Grammy for Best Rap Album Tyler the Creator called the out National Academy of Recording members for refusing to recognize Black artists outside the urban music genre...

Take your award and STFU! Make up your own awards ceremony and stop begging the white man for inclusion. Grammys been irrelevant!

Tyler is right. They put music by Black people in the rap/urban category because they know we would win most awards if we were included in categories dominated by White people.

I think this is hypocritical. I mean you won an award and immediately talk shit afterwards?? Sounds like an ingrate to me. On another note, maybe I'm getting old but the music, rap, etc. is simply not very good. The rappers are mumbling and the lyrics are riddled with sex and drugs. You can barely understand what they're saying. R & B there's nothing really popping off in that area as well. Say what you may about Lizzo's ass, but she is really good. Without the extra antics, the sister is talented. She's play's her flute, she can rap a tad bit and she can definitely sing. She seems to me to be more on the pop side of the spectrum. We have some other sisters out there that have skills as well. That Ari Lennox, Queen Najia, et... those young ladies are good too. They just need someone strong; a powerhouse that will get behind them. These young ladies are just as good as a RiRi and a Bey(because Riri can't sing worth a shit). Maybe it's all about timing as well. So many wonderful artist get overlooked. But Diddy did a rant too and I think it's a tad bit too late. The Grammy's have always screwed Blacks over. But the music out today is simply not good. Maybe it's me and I'm out of touch? who knows..

He's right. However, he's such a whiny, ugly brat who caters to the incel crowd.

The Grammies are a joke. The fact that Lizzo, that demonic Billie Eyelash, and Lil Nas the Cowboy Coon had the most nominations goes to show how trash the Grammies are.

Talented but very annoying.

Miss Jay, come get your child!

I agree 100%. And LMAO @ your comment about Rihanna. She might as well stick to selling overpriced makeup and clothes because that musically talentless bitch need to stay FAR away from a microphone, studio, and stage for the rest of her life. She's not a real artist or musician and never will be.

And yes Lizzo is talented but obviously desperate for fame and money and chooses to be a slutty version of Mammy from Gone With the Wind.

Although Tyler speaks truth, suffice to say he will not receive any Grammys in the future.

Boy take yo damn award and get yo ass off the stage.

10:04 AM Facts, I'm tired of majority of the shit that passes for music from these fools, with all the sex, murder, whips hoes and all the fuckery. Write better lyrics, you don't hear the troglodytes with all that misogynistic ear abortion, although most of their shit is trash too as they barely have any talent and are just mimics. But overall I need my people to do better and stop relying on yt validation, we all know they are racist ass haters who, will always be hating on our talent, creativity and spirituality.
