(GEMS RADIO)– Quavo is the latest artist to join the anti-Grammy stance. The rapper likes J. Prince’s idea of boycotting the Grammys and setting up a new rival show the same night of the Academy event.
Quavo is Exited
Speaking to TMZ at the Los Angeles International Airport, Quavo seemed excited about J. Prince’s ideas
“Let’s do it. We need to make our own rules for those who appreciate the real shit that’s going on in the streets, that appreciate the culture, that appreciate the best new artists. Instead of a freshman class, we need like best new artist in the street whenever they come out. We couldn’t go on freshman class ’cause we was a group. Just shit like that, all these little stipulations … we the creators.”
Actions by the Recording Academy to axe Kanye West from performing at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards have continued to cause a stir in the Hip Hop community.
The Game was first to join the Academy’s blasting. The second was Rap-A-Lot’s J. Prince, who condemned Grammys for their stance and encouraged The Weeknd, Drake, and Nicki Minaj to join him.
In an Instagram post, J.Prince wrote, “HIP HOP VS. THE GRAMMYS: @champagnepapi, @kanyewest, @theweeknd, @nickiminaj. The powers that be will be mad at me about this one but FUCK EM! I love the culture! The seed is planted … let’s water it!”
Awards Set for April 3rd
The 64th Grammy award is set for April 3rd at the MGM Grand Arena. Kanye, who was set to perform at the award show, was banned after he displayed “disturbing online behavior” where he targeted his ex-wife’s boyfriend, Pete Davidson.
Mr. West is up for five awards from his Donda album, also set for the Album of the Year award. It is yet unclear if Kanye will be attending the event. But if he chooses to, he can walk on the red carpet and accept awards at the livestreamed premiere and the main show. His acceptance speech, if he wins, should be something for the books.
