Kanye West was not in attendance for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards but that didn’t matter, Ye’ ended up having a big night anyway snagging three awards landing him at the number 5 spot in most awards ever won by a male in Grammy history at 21.
Kanye was nominated six times and landed three big ones with Best Rap Song with “Ni**as in Paris”, Best Rap Performance for “Ni**as in Paris”, and his last one of the night being Best Rap/hip-hop Collab with “No Church In The Wild” which featured Jay-Z, The Dream and Frank Ocean on Watch The Throne.
For those of you wondering why Kanye West wasn’t at the Grammys, Yeezy spoke against the Grammys back in December in Atlantic City saying
“How many Grammys do we have? … Eighteen Grammys. All in the black categories, though. But nonetheless, 18. I love Maroon 5, but when I lost Best New Artist to Maroon 5 … you know what I mean? Or when ‘Watch the Throne’ and ‘Dark Fantasy,’ neither of them got nominated for Album of the Year, you know what I mean? Or when ‘N—-s in Paris’ didn’t get nominated for Record of the Year, you know what I mean? So don’t expect to see me at the Grammys this year, you know what I mean?!”
Did you want to see Kanye at the Grammys? Does he have a point for not attending? (Reply in the comments)
