Kanye West Says He's Never Won A Grammy Against A White Artist

Kanye West says out of his 21 Grammy awards, he didn't receive any of them when faced against a white artist.

After last week’s announcement of the nominees for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, Chicago rapper Kanye West took it upon himself to share his thoughts on the list of nominees during his "Yeezus Tour" stop in Phoenix, Arizona yesterday (December 10).

Clad in his signature Margiela mask, Kanye seemed less than pleased with his two Grammy nominations, which included nods for Best Rap Album (Yeezus) and Best Rap Song (“New Slaves”). He also drew attention to the fact that he has a total of 21 Grammys to his name, but has never won a Grammy when faced against a white artist.

“They try to trivialize my words and try to make it seem like my importance as a musician is less important than what it is,” 'Ye said. “I mean, we can even take a look at some recent nominations that came out. Now I’m 36-years-old and I have 21 Grammys. That’s the most Grammys of any 36-year-old. Out of all those 21 Grammys, I’ve never won a Grammy against a white artist.”

Following comparisons to Michael Jackson and the late singer’s struggle to break into the mainstream, Kanye said, “fuck those nominations,” in regards to his Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song nominations.

“So, when the Grammy nominations come out and Yeezus is the Top 1 or 2 albums on every single list, but only gets two nominations from the Grammys,” said the rapper. “What are they trying to say? Do they think that I wouldn’t notice? Do they think that some way that I don’t have the power to completely diminish all of their credibility at this moment…People come to me and they congratulate me on those two nominations. Fuck those nominations.”

Joining Kanye in the Best Rap Album category are Drake (Nothing Was The Same), Kendrick Lamar (good kid, m.A.A.d city), Jay Z (Magna Carta Holy Grail) and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (The Heist). In addition to Kanye’s “New Slaves,” other songs nominated for Best Rap Song include A$AP Rocky's "F***in' Problems,” Jay-Z's “Holy Grail,” Drake's “Started From The Bottom” and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis “Thrift Shop.”

Kanye is currently in the process of winding down his "Yeezus Tour," which is scheduled to make stops in Anaheim, California; Detroit; Chicago; and other cities before the end of the year.

So what the hell is he talking about?!?!?!?!?! Thats 10 Grammys won over white artists, Kanye is insane, what he forget they were nominated or something??

  • Justin

    Never listened never will, guessing I'm the reason he won't win against a better artist

  • M

    This man is an idiot. He has very little talent and he has far less brains.

  • john

    Does he realize that it is mainly because his work is of the type that is common among African americans? And, that is why he has not won against a white person? Because there aren't nearly as many white artists in the categories he is in! But then again, even the most obvious things are not obvious to him. I get small laughs out of the circus that is Kanye. He can't understand things, so it must of course be that the whole world is against him or doesn't get how "great" he is. Everyone can have an opinion and here is mine. He can rap, but I am not sure how he thinks that qualifies him to compete with musicians and artists in other categories. Just because he is popular does not make him great or a proven talent. There are plenty of talented people that never become famous.

  • Derrick

    Not true. 2005 he won against the Beastie Boys, and in 2006 he won against Eminem. There may be issues of race here, but his statement isn't true.

    Is he saying that there are no other 36 year olds with 21 Grammys? There may not be any current 36 year olds with 21 Grammys, but I'm sure there are older award winners that have 21 or more Grammy awards.

    I think this dude is talking about the MAJOR categories and he is right. Most of his wins are in the RAP/R&B categories, which 95% of the time the other artists are black. I can see that as being a slap in the face. So you nominate Ye in all these big categories all of the time but he only wins against his other RAP peers and people. If Macklemore and Ryan Lewis win in any of the MAJOR categories they are nominated in I would be pissed. Its all politics. What other black/rap artist has been nominated in the major categories and won recently??? NONE! Ye is the only black artis to consistently be in the categories and never win. Its like them saying well we need to put somebody from the genre in there but they wont win anyway. Thats like going to the super bowl 5 times and losing but winning MVP 4 or 5 times. Hell, if its about his funky attitude and rants then stop nominating him. If Kendrick doesnt win 1 or 2 Grammy's thats another slap. Hollywood and the music game is all political. We have been brainwashed for years. How many Record of the Years and Album of the Years do people in the hood bump?? Ye is the only dude that will speak up. Other artists get happy about getting a nom in their own category. Hell, if I think my album is dope and should be up for a MAJOR award then stand up and thats for all artists. Thats like saying ya'll good but ya'll just some rappers so stick over there. Same thing with these Golden Globe Awards, the Butler was left off and so was Angela Bassett.

  • jaceshadoe

    kanye always finds a way to complain or cry about something....."poor me, everybody is out to get me B/C i'm rich, black, and speaks my mind"............STFU........dude hasn't dropped a decent worth listening album since 200-08ish

  • Al Sharpton

    As emperor of black people, I declare that Kanye West no longer has a right to speak about the struggles of the black community. He could of married a beautiful black woman that already has five kids and lives in the projects but no...he decided to marry a RICH WHITE WOMAN instead. We feel that Kanye West is a traitor to his own people. He's all black black black right during the day and then goes home to his WHITE FAMILY at night. Don't get me wrong, Kanye West is still better then every single white person on this earth (including Eminem, awwwww shiitttt just pissed yall white boys off wit dat 1) but at the end of the day Kanye is no longer a preacher for the black community. The Grammys are still racist thought, and we will be protesting.

  • Dan Torres

    Okusually I don't comment on Kanye's stupid statements, but this might be one of the stupidest things he has ever said in his life, besides the fact that it's completely untrue. Let's look at the facts: In 2005, Yeezy won a Grammy for Best Rap Album for The College Drop Out, beating the Beastie Boys in order to do so. In 2006, Kanye won both Best Rap Solo Performance and Best Rap Album, beating Eminem in both categories. In 2010, he won Best Rap/Sung Collaboration with Jay-Z and Rihanna for "Run This Town", beating The Lonely Island, then finally, in 2012, he won the same award for "All of the Lights", beating Eminem and Dre to do so. He's beat out white people five times, at least. I may have missed some. But hey, while were here, let's see how many times Yeezy's actually LOST to white people. John Mayer in 2005 for Song of the Year Maroon 5 in 2005 for Best New Artist U2 in 2006 for Album of the Year. Linkin Park and Jay-Z in 2006 for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. Green Day in 2006 for Record of the Year. Coldplay in 2009 for Song of the Year. Eminem in 2010 for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. Eminem in 2011 for Best Rap Solo Performance. & Adele in 2012 for Song of the Year. So, out of Kanye's 54 Grammy nominations and his 21 wins, he's only lost to white people nine times. Not even 20% of the time. Chill Kanye.

    as a close friend of Lil Wayne I spend a lot of time with the YMCMB crew. last weekend me and Weezy were smoking weed in the bathroom, while Drake was taking a shit and Nicki Minaj was removing hair from her legs with electric depilator. so we were talking about who is the gayest rapper alive. Kanye, Jay, Eminem or Kendrick Lamar? it was hard to decide. we all know Kanye wears skirts and had sex with french fashion designers, Kendrick had a gay orgy with Black Hippy and Suge Knight. Eminem had a threesome with Dr. Dr and Tony Yayo.... but! we all voted for Jay-Z aka Shawn "I can only fuck Beyonce with a strap-on because I like male body" Knowles. yes, he is the gayest rapper. you ask why? let me tell you. he tried to rape: Bennie Siegel, Frank Ocean, Biggie Smalls, Memphis Blake, Ja Rule, P. Diddy. he RAPED J. Cole, Eminem, Kanye West, Jaz-O and Tyler the Creator... this old ass nigga is an asspirate, notorious gay and rapist. no comment. swag

  • That Crip in His Basement

    What I learn most about white people from reading these mostly white comments, is that they have a massive superiority complex. They're very self righteous and think they're somehow "above" the things a lot of 'black people' choose to rap about. "How dare they talk about the struggles they had to deal with at the hands of white people, how dare they rap from the perspective a person from a white created ghetto, how dare they rap about having a better life after being deprived of anything and everything their whole lives. They should act like hipsters or pick up a dictionary and use big words to impress us. We control this shit and we should dictate what they do, even though they invented and we're just guests" lol That's what you guys sound like to me. White people have forgotten that they're just guests in our house. They have gotten WAAYYYY to bold and comfortable with this shit, look at these comments. They're no longer just buying rappers music for what it is, or accepting it... They actually think they can control it. They feel entitled to our music, as if it's the natural order of the world for them to take what we have. It's kind of unbelievable to me. It's articles like this that remind me why I don't have any white friends.........

    • Informed Civilian

      ...and to claim something is yours just because you discovered/created it, such as you're doing with hip hop is ridiculous and childish. It's also the premise which racism is founded upon. "They aren't entitled to be here, this is our country." "They can't use our schools, we made those!" "You can't be entitled to our music, we made that!" ITS ALL THE SAME. People just don't get it... if you stop seeing race/color. It will stop seeing you.

    • Informed Civilian

      Complaining about race while using pronouns like "they", "our", "your" totally contradicts your whole argument. MUSIC DOES NOT HAVE RACE. YOU CANNOT CLAIM THAT ART BELONGS TO A CERTAIN COLOR OF PERSON. HIP HOP IS COLORLESS. Generalizing a whole population of "white people" as "guests in your house" is extremely ignorant and is actually one of the things that keeps racism alive. You have no white friends because you have this idea that ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE EVIL, and rich and greedy and disrespectful. and YES white people feel entitled to Hip Hop because its FUCKING MUSIC. ANYONE is entitled to enjoy ANYTHING in this world that brings them emotion. COLOR IS NOTHING. Take off your racism lens and see the world for what it is and not what you're told it is. If you continue to see people as white or black they're going to continue to see you the same way... GOOD DAY SIR

      " It's articles like this that remind me why I don't have any white friends..." @That Crip in His Basement No,it's your savage behavior, complete lack of regard for civilized society, primate-like facial characteristics (including big lips,flaring nostrils fur,etc.) and victim complex which cause you not to have any white friends. Stop lying to yourself like it's a self conscious decision you've somehow made not to have white friends. No,the TRUTH is,you desperately WISH to have white friends to boost your self esteem,which after many attempts to conform to society has gotten you NOWHERE. Read a book and stop trying to blame people for your shitty situation. If rap music is your people's last symbol of pride,that says a whole lot about the state of your people. Stop trying to act like you started this when you personally didn't start anything. The only thing your family pioneered was new methods of smoking crack cocaine and frying chicken, no pun intended. Holla back!

      Eminem is nowhere near the better artist, Em is the better rapper by far. Kanye is arguably the best hip hop artist of all time, name another rapper aside from Ye who has 4 (arguably) classic albums. CD, Late Registration, Graduation, MBDTF, they're some of the best hip hop albums of all time and they all sound completely different. Kanye constantly changes his style and innovates, that's what great artists do. For all of Eminem's lyrical skill, most of his albums have covered the same topics. For 5 straight albums, Eminem's first singles sounded exactly alike. on top of that, his production has been severely lacking on his past two albums. Kanye almost never repeats himself.

    Not trying to side with Kanye, but he simply is a man who has endless ambition. While this is probably in his own mind, he feels he is at a point where he wants his competition to be everyone, and wants accolade for winning against anyone in different categories. Not just win in the same two categories against other black artist over and over again. He wants and expects more from everyone.

    Grammies have always been money based, who gives a fuck nigga????? Let the music speak for itself Kanye just mad because he wants to be a part of the billionaire's club that he can't reach yet. Nike only thinks of him as another celebrity endorsement deal, and I can respect that he wants to go beyond that. However, the truth is that your favorite rapper knows that the 1% runs this fucking nation and he just wants a piece of that action. He's a "revolutionary" only for himself and he's trying to protect his "family" in this manner since the only true freedom you'll ever have is if you join the club with Bill Gates and what not. I give props to him because he's smart enough to figure that out and truth be told, little to no blacks have that position of power. However, if he receives what he wants, then what you'll see is him having an impact on our consumerism like Steve Jobs and the Iphone. He'll set new trends and whatnot, but in the end this will do nothing alleviate the world's problems, except give us new shit to purchase. The world needs saving, not more billionaires.

    Arcade Fire is more talented than you Kanye, and they make better music. Get over it

    • mq

      Arcade Fire won in 2011 album of the year. Kanye had no album in that year (MBDTF was released in november 2010, so was elegible for 2012 grammys)

    • YouSerious?

      @Anon...Outkast's album won because of The Love Below, don't kid yourself into thinking that Hey Ya's crossover success didn't win people over. @Drizzy I know it was well-received, but Kanye's work was just bigger and better that year, across the board.

    • drizzy!

      The Suburbs was also highly critically acclaimed! Both albums were.

    • YouSerious?

      But the year Arcade Fire beat out Kanye, who's album had greater critical acclaim? Sales? Relevance to Pop Culture? It was all Kanye that year, but the Grammys refuse to let an outright Hip-Hop album win Album of the Year.

  • Anonymous

    everybody seen ya girls box nigga, stfu!

  • YouSerious?

    So College Dropout won over the Beastie Boys for Best Rap Album in 2005. Late Registration won over Eminem for Best Rap Album in 2006. Gold Digger won Best Rap Solo Performance over Eminem's Mockingbird in 2006, too. Kanye has won against white Hip-Hop artists. However, I think he's more upset over awards like Record of the Year, Best New Artist, and most importantly, Album of the Year. A pure Hip-Hop album has never won. Outkast won because of Hey Ya winning over pop audiences. Lauryn Hill's album was more RnB than Hip-Hop. Kanye should have won Album of the Year when My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was nominated. But he's personalized a prejuice that goes beyond just him as an artist. The Grammys don't respect Hip-Hop. If The Heist wins any major awards over GKMC, then there should be some serious eyebrows raised.

    • YouSerious?

      But the Grammys are based in America. The Heist was not as critically acclaimed of an album as GKMC for good reason too. The stories, beats, and performances in general are superior on GKMC. Also, The Heist is essentially Hip-Pop with its style. Don't condescend when you're not going to put up much for an argument.

    • Anonymous

      the heist was a much bigger album globally. americans dont understand that.

    The grammys are racist, Macklemore is a one hit wonder yet you have artists with deep deep discography, cultural influence, relevance, respect, critical acclaim, top selling albums and they never get any respect, they should call it the KKKrammy Awards.

    Anonymous: White racism is the only racism. Everywhere they go on the planet they bring race-hatred, they take great pride in trying to destroy other cultures like the Herrero, the Native Americans, the Tasmanians and every other culture they come in contact with. It's simply in their nature. If a Black person were to be "prejudiced" (Pre-judge) it would be very wise because based on history white people have been the #1 outside enemy of Black people, these people stripped us of our Gods, our names, our language, our folkways, our mores, and our norms and then raped us, mutilated us, lynched us, burned us and dehumanized us for hundreds of years. Based on that alone I will Pre-judge them the same way I would Pre-judge a venomous snake or a wild boar, I won't allow my natural enemy to lull me to sleep and then attempt to destroy me. ^ THAT'S WUT I'M MUTHAFUCKIN' TALKIN' ABOUT!!!! THAT'S THAT FUCKIN' BULLSHIT THAT FUCKIN' RYAN "SLAVE MASTER" SEACREST IS TRYIN' TO FUCKIN' DO!!!! PERPETUATE THAT FUCKIN' RACISM SHIT BY PUTTIN' OUT AN "ALL WHITE FEMALE RAPPER" SHOW!!!!

    • YouSerious?

      Alright, so what if you met a white person who agrees entirely that institutionalized racism exists and that minorities deserve chances to gain positions of power in our society? If you meet a white person who agrees that the system is fucked up, and he wants to help, what's your reaction? You're making some pretty broad statements about a group of people when you say they're all as sophisticated as animals, although I don't blame you because white people, throughout history, have been involved with some of the worst events. But that doesn't make all people who you identify as white bad people.

    thats true. when the weakest eminem albums and singles like just lose it and the relapse win grammies you begin to wonder on what basis the awards are handed out.

    Kanye shouldn't have a single nomination. Only reason he got good reviews is because they were trying to cater to the hipsters. The album was the worst album I've ever heard in my life.

      I missed the part where he was crying, he simply stated facts and said that he has 21 Grammys but has never won one over a white artist which is damn near amazing if you ask me. Sadly the most sickening of this years Grammy outside of the homo-hop nominee is the fact that they injected a white artist in every single rap category......they want to white wash the culture so bad.

    Eminem is a rapper that many people have said been a pure product of white privilege but he's never won album of the year. Then Black artists like Outkast and Lauryn Hill have won AOTY though....

      GKMC is still nominated for the grammy though, and its just my personal opinion. NWTS just seems more focused , with better production and lyrics. Drake i think did a better job portraying a picture for his album then kanye did for his.
