Kanye West Rants About Grammy Awards At Atlantic City Show

Kanye West takes a moment during a recent show to address the Recording Academy.

As is yearly custom, Kanye West went on a rant about the Grammy Awards during his recent show in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Making sure he got in a few words about the Grammys before the end of the year, 'Ye discussed award losses and lack of nominations both old and new. “I love Maroon 5, but when I lost for 'Best New Artist' to Maroon 5… Or when Watch the Throne and Dark Fantasy, neither of them got nominated for 'Album of the Year,' or when 'Niggas in Paris' didn’t get nominated for 'Record of the Year'… So don’t expect to see me at the Grammys this year, you nah mean?!”

Kanye conceded that the "Grammy Family" consisting of him, Common, and John Legend have won 18 awards, but quickly added that they were in "all of the black categories."

    Till this day, the only person that puts on a good rant on stage is Axl fuckin' Rose.

  • So Icy Boi!

    Lil Wayne sold mo album den Kanye West... and his singles are best sellin of all time. Lil Wayne and Drake da best rappers ever. swag

  • rapper2freedom

    Do you see 50 complaining, its what you do in your career that matters. Accomplish a lot then a petty award won't mean shit.

  • that

    I understand Kanye is a crazy dude but his music awesome. I don't care what anyone says but My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy deserved the Album of the year by a landslide. It is one of the best albums of all time. ALL TIME

  • Shannon Alexander

    What a twat...

  • Always Bitching

    With kanye's logic, that means Nas shouldn't win in any of his catergories because his singles and albums did not sell if he is crying that Niggas in Paris did not win. Why is acting like he doesn't know there is a difference between commercial singles and non commercial single. sometimes the grammys decide to respect non commercial singles.

      Going back to 99 only black artists that have won are, Lauren Hill in 1999, Not black but Santana just to say race doesn't really play issue the next year in 2000 so no white winners in two years holy shit. Than Outkast in 2004, 2005 Ray Charles...Point is Kanye is in HIP HOP categories I will cosign with the Grammy's are probably not too excited when hip hop albums are up for the award I'll give ya that, to say they're just racist. Check the full list. I'm sick of always reading how "THEY" whoever the fuck they are don't want black people winning this or black people doing this, there will always be haters but to say Society hasn't come decently far with all that is unfair. People are people who have some who still think slavery is cool we know this but those are People and usually people suck, which I guess would make Society suck, but at least there has been some progress in killing all this hate and color barriers. It's just annoying reading about race being the issue for everything. HAPPY NEW YEAR

      Bruh Kanye not bitching cause eh sold albums and singles hes bitching because hes doing more than just rap and he just get thrown into the rap category hes tryna tell yall that the grammys is racist! they dont want black people winning overall album of the year or none of that dude.

    None of those songs or albums deserved those awards, case closed. This fool lives in a box. Grammy's are fake anyways, so are 99% of award shows.

    You have to make good music to be nominated for those categories, not G.O.O.D. music

    "IT'S ABOUT HIS TALENT NOT HIS PERSONALITY" So talent means you can do unspeakable things with no accountability? Get your head out of the clouds.

    "MADE A BIG THING ABOUT MIKE VICK & DOGS WHEN THEY KNEW DAMN WELL THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT HIS PERFORMANCE ON THE FIELD" Millions of people who don't watch football had a big problem with how this loser spent his downtime, torturing and killing dogs. The Falcons even dropped him, so the moral of the story is while the average citizen can't tell a star athlete how to live his life, they have every right to express outrage.

    Regardless whether he's right or wrong or what people think, Kanye West rants about whatever the fuck he wants... That's part of who he is... He's an asshole. An extremely talented asshole, but an asshole. Regardless what you think of him, rap, actually, music in general, needs him and people like him.

  • Mortis

    Kanye breath smells like Kris Humphries nutsac

  • BITCH ASS NIGGA

    Kanye West has passion but he needs to really take a reality check. Thinking Grammies you a legend. Crying ass nigga, he's fallen off since Graduation.

  • Anonymous

    You really show your lack of character when you cry about shit like this. You have fans across the world and that should be enough for anybody. Your crying about an awards show like it makes a difference. Far as I know Nas has never won a grammy and could give a fuck less. Kanye throws a tantrum about it. But again I expect nothing less from him.

    I'd go on a rant too if I was Kanye and 2 Chainz got nominated instead of me.

    He is right. MBDTF should have not only been nominated but should also have won album of the year. Grammys have gone the way of the source in terms of credibility.

      So there credibility is lost because they dont agree with your opinion??? LOL, you dont even realize how arrogant you sound do you??

  • ETK

    seriously nigga? Kanye you're in the double digits of Grammys wins ffs! how the fuck are you still gonna have beef with the Grammy awards when you have as much(or more) than Jay-Z. Jesus Christ, this nigga ain't ever satisfied. "black categories" fine, that still means you're torchin everybody in the black categories. that's still a good thing. you wanna take over them white folks too now? Taylor Swift ain't the only white broad you're gonna interrupt in your career? least we know that won't happen this year but damn

    • Anonymous

      naw i can agree with him on that point, winning in the black categories is cool, but if he feels he makes the best msic period, i can understand why he would wanna win more than just those awards

  • greg

    fuck you kanye, you had a great point untill you had to make it about yourself. what about tech n9ne? what about black hippy? what a bout anybody but your fucking self. im positive the illuminati runs the grammys lol

  • sam snead

    It was criminal that MBDTF did not get nominated but I can't stand this guys personality, its not like he doesn't get any recognition and has not been really successful but the way he acts its like he has never blew up

    • sam snead

      I never said I did get to dictate how he acts dickhead, I just said I don't like his personality and he is an attention whore. I like him behind the boards more than as a rapper anyways but thats my opinion and we all know about those. Plenty of people still don't like Vick and he has not done anything in 2 years

    I don't blame him, though. Watch the Throne or MBDTF should have at least been nominated.

      @ You Sir are a faggot you should probably kill yourself, you shitty music listening douche. If you think that Kanye killed hiphop, then slice your fucking ears off and shove a dick in your ass, because you saying Kanye killed it means that you're don't have a problem with ACTUAL shitty rappers like Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Soulja Boy, Riff Raff, Lil B, Chief Keef, etc. Stop listening to music and work on ways to get off of this planet.

      Alright bros, that was a great circlejerk, we didn't get off fast enough though, we'll plan for a quicker time next time. And yes Mortis, we would love to. I would have been offended if you didn't ask.

    • Mortis

      Lance, whoa OMG. I can't wait! My penis is literally throbbing right now-NO, it's PULSATING for your saliva. Thank you for making my day! Can I spread my cheek holes though so you and Deek can take turns shooting loads into it? That would be awesome. =)

    • Deek

      Lance? What the fuck? You and Mortis are becoming best friends? What happened to us? Well, I guess Mortis does know how to put a finger in your ass better than I do, dudemacho. It's alright, all three of us will have a circle jerk in five minutes, both of you, meet me in the treehouse. Mortis, don't forget to bring the stereo and your Pitbull cd.

    • Lance

      Bra, you come over, use my mom's dildo in the bathroom, and this is how you disrespect me? Come on, Mortis, I thought we were becoming best friends, remember when you told me that your dad raped you, and you cried on my shoulder, while Usher was playing in the background? I mean this shit happened all in a span of 10 minutes of you showing up. Now, you're using my brother, Daniel's computer, on this site acting like you're a hardass? Not cool brew.

    • Mortis

      Does your friend Lance have 1 ball and steroids? Perhaps he can shoot you in your ass with the jizz with his needle dick

    • Deek

      Good one bra, hey me and my buddy Lance are going to meet up and listen to Flo-Rida if you're interested. We need another white friend with a 5 year old sense of humor to hang out with us, and you seem like the perfect fit dudebro.
