Why Kanye Ditched The Grammy’s

It was announced on Thursday that Drake, Lil Wayne & Eminem (along with Travis Barker) would be performing at The Grammy’s tonight, but Kanye West’s name wasn’t brought up. AllHipHop‘s hunch is that it’s because they snubbed Kanye’s 808’s & Heartbreaks, even though his song “Amazing” and 4 other songs that he was featured on were up nominated tonight.

Yesterday, Drake told The Canadian Press that Kanye will not be joining them because he might be working on his project, and Travis Barker told MTV he heard pretty much the same thing. That sounds good and all, but he couldn’t have found another time to do that? I understand that it makes sense if they diss what you do, you go back in the studio and do it better, but why tonight? This is the one night out of the year where he’s given a free pass to talk his shit. Plus, he just spent a week chilling out in Paris, why would he have to go back to work immediately? It doesn’t make any sense and I guess it’s not supposed to.

He obviously has his reason, but either Ye’s people or The Grammy’s need to patch this up soon. I think they should have let him give out an award or have some sort of microphone time, at least some sort of chance to help his image, regardless of what happened at the VMAs… because right now it just looks like they’re scared of him.

Then again, they could have very well offered him something other than a performance and he declined, possibly because he really does want to stay out of the spotlight, per what he told Leno a few months ago. All I know is that for the last 5 years, The Grammy’s have been synonymous with Kanye West (for my generation at least,) and sometimes these award shows aren’t really worth watching if it isn’t for the fuckery.

Sidebar: Lil Wayne & Eminem will also be performing Drop The World.

  26. AND WON Says:

  27. AND WON Says:

    MOS DEF GOT ROBBED!!!!!!!

  28. sashaj Says:

    Just to let everybody know im white….and i cant stand taylor swift i hate that bitch

  29. SMH more Says:

    america’s pity party for taylor swift lives on. she better start sending Ye checks for what he did for her career. i realize a lot of people like her and idk, can connect to her music…but she honestly doesn’t have much substance

    kanye’s next album > life

    undeniably

  30. BLESS Says:

    Taylor Swift had the highest selling album this year before the AMA’s Kanye making an ass out of himself incident! So why hate Taylor…she sold 10 million copies of her album “Fearless” and 20 million paid song downloads, more than any artist in country music history. Co-signing Kanye disrespecting this young lady is stupid!

  31. david Says:

    If kanye stole the mic, then is taylor really swift???

  32. Muzzah Says:

    If Ye ain’t there lookin’ fresh and picking up hardware I really don’t see much use watching… the Wayne/Drake/Em performance was hot tho. Travis Barker was goin to work.

  33. bkallday Says:

    that said, that being said and having said that have been said.

    ye make a beat.

  34. tim Says:

    the only reason why kanye doesnt get that much grammy/mtv love is that he’s not that deep into the illuminati, freemason, etc and he probably knows something about michael jackson

  35. Nah Right » Unsung Hero Says:

    […] Kanye was visibly missing from The Grammy’s last night, his mentor was putting on for their city. Among all the fuckery […]

  36. Andrew Says:

    i think he was there but low key like in a booth because he was at the We Are The World Recording the next day
