On Monday afternoon (March 15), Weezy tweeted “Fuk the Grammys”.
It’s unclear exactly what prompted the New Orleans rhymer to post, but he’s not the first artist to oppose the coveted awards show in recent weeks.
Last week a report from The New York Times claimed that The Weeknd to boycott the Grammy Awards moving forward after the Recording Academy failed to name their No.1 album Billboard 200 After hours or his Billboard Hot 100 # 1 album “Blinding Lights.” Due to the secret committees, I will no longer allow my label to submit my music to the Grammys, “the crooner told the publication in a statement. Abel called the Grammys last November as well.
Weezy F. Baby can now be added to the list of artists who have called the Grammys without excuse such as Jay-Z, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Frank Ocean and Tyler the creator.
While Wayne doesn’t feel the Grammys – to say the least – he’s walked away with a few gramophones throughout his career. It has been nominated 24 times and won five of 24: Best Rap Solo Performance for “A Milli” (2008), Best Rap Performance by Duo or Group for “Swagga Like Us” (2008), Best Rap Song for “Lollipop” “(2008), Best Rap Album for Tha Carter III (2008) and Best Rap Performance for “No Problem” (2017).
Tunechi also made her Grammy award-winning stage debut in 2008, performing “Swagger Like Us” with TI, Jay-Z, MIA and Kanye West. He took the stage a second time that evening to perform “Tie My Hands” with Robin Thicke and then participated in a medley of “Big Chief” and “My Feet Can’t Fail Me Now” with Thicke, Allen Toussaint and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band in homage to Lil Wayne’s hometown and the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
