Rapper Kanye West was performing a gig at Revel in Atlantic City last night (December 29) when he decided to take a dig at the Grammys, after he lost out to Maroon 5. Kanye was performing his track Clique, when he decided to mix things up a bit with a little rant about a few things.
West started by having a little dig at the media, stating that they try to portray him in a bad way, “They’ll try to tell you Kanye’s so crazy, so deranged… I ain’t crazy, I’m just not satisfied” He then moved on to take a pop at the Grammys.
Kanye continued, “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 “Ni**as 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?!”
It will be interesting to see whether Kanye West actually sticks to his word and does boycott the Grammys in 2013, as he has been nominated for no fewer than six of them and is almost certain to take home at least one Grammy for his awards collection.
