Q-Tip Blasts Grammys For Snubbing A Tribe Called Quest
"We have been the most black crop group. That's all we got of foot. That's what we stand for."
A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip was visibly (and audibly) is heated in a series of Instagram videos that was released on Tuesday (28 November).
After the Grammy nominations were revealed and ATCQ the latest (and last) album, We got it from Here ... Thank you 4 Your service was noticeably snubbed, the Hip Hop legend was at the Academy of the Recording of the supervision.
In the first video, the Tip is mentioned that the people who are pointing out this is the first year in Grammy history that there are no white men were nominated in the Artist of the Year category, something that obviously thinks that it is irrelevant.
"You think that it's some sort of caveat, because this is the first time that no white man is always nominated in any of the main categories and shit," Tip says. "We have been the most black crop group. That's all it was. That is what we represent. This fucking album that we just put out this last Tribe album — found with all the other shit that's up there. I don't give a fuck.
"Respect to all those who are nominated and all that, but whatever, I'm talking about mine," he continues. "It is the sick of y'all Grammy fuck niggas. Fuckin' get out and fucking do the past year and close to that shit, and you do not let us make no fucking nominations?"

In a second video, I called the Recording Academy for historically refuse to legendary artists like Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. At the same time, gives a great shout out to the "GOAT" of LL Cool J, who is being honored at the Kennedy Center next month.
"None of you rap niggas don't say shit. Fuck that. Not to say shit. Muthafuckin' right I'm hot. The last shit of the Tribe album. Y'all niggas don't even give us no fuckin' nominations? Y'all don't fuckin' give Bob Marley a fuckin' Grammy. Marvin just fuckin'. Jimi I do not have none and shit
