A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip Enraged Over Grammy Snub

A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip Enraged Over Grammy Snub”

Grammy nominations were released today, and as happens every year, people were quick to point out artists snubbed by the Recording Academy.

Check out Q-Tip's videos below.

"Y'all think it's some sort of caveat because this is the first time that no white man wasn't nominated in no major categories and s-?"

This morning (Nov. 28), the 2018 Grammy nominees were announced and Black Twitter was all happy since so many Hip-Hop acts, like Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino, got blessed with numerous nominations. That's all we stood on. "That's what we represented", Tip said. Despite releasing one of the better received hip-hop albums of the year, Tribe's final group album, We Got It From Here. "Respect to everybody who's nominated and all of that, but whatever". I'm sick of y'all f*cking Grammys n*ggas, man. Y'all f*cking get us to get out there to perform a year ago as coons and sh*t and y'all don't give us no f*cking nomination? "We been doing this [expletive] for [expletive] years!" he continued. For that album? For that album? For that album? I'm exhausted of biting my tongue all the f**king time and being all nice and s**t. Yes, I'm hot. Get off my lawn.

"None of y'all rap n-ggas don't say shit". Y'all don't give us no f*ckin' nominations.

He then went on to list all of the legendary artists that the Grammys failed to recognize with nominations and awards, including Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix. Marvin [Gaye] only got f*ckin' one. Led Zeppelin ain't.... You know what, y'all ni**as is corny! We gon' honor the GOAT LL and shit and give him his fucking nomination and give him his award and shit. Y'all see what the f*ck we do over there.

Tip went on to stress the importance of ATCQ's album while pleading that y'all not fall for the "diverse" Grammy's jig since being Black is what his group stood on.
