Kanye Asks ‘White Publications’ Not To Comment On ‘Black Music’
Kanye West, who just released his latest album The Life of Pablo this weekend, is the latest artist boycotting the Grammys. Well, kind of.
At this point, we better get used to ‘Ye hopping on Twitter and dropping some knowledge from time to time. Tonight, he’s letting everyone know that he’s been practicing his Grammys speech tomorrow in hopes of winning Album of the Year. To be clear, he’s not actually nominated for the award. The nominees for this year’s Grammys are Alabama Shakes’ Sound & Color, Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly, Chris Stapleton’s Traveller, Taylor Swift’s 1989 and The Weeknd’s Beauty Behind the Madness.
He goes to say that he made My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Watch the Throne within the same year and he still wasn’t nominated. He then writes, “I made Dark Fantasy and Watch the Throne in one year and wasn’t nominated for either … I will have over 100 Grammys before I die.” Its bold statement and pretty ambitious, but you can’t knock his determination.
In the latter half of his tweets, he addresses his previous announcement about his $53 million in personal debt. He’s actually proud of his debt, which is a welcoming change to tons of millennials who are struggling or unhappy that they’re still paying off their student loans.
You can read the whole thing below. Kanye’s The Life of Pablo is available for streaming on Tidal, but won’t be available for purchase until Feb. 21.
