  1. Snubbing black artists is a headline grabber and a way to get views at this point for the Grammys its undeniable who should have won the last 5 years but eyyy, we cry about it and it gives em headlines for, "Let's watch black ppl get pissed off" and well its entertaining, I guess. So at the end of the day…what are you doing to do?

  2. There are many talented artist out there who deserve a shot. You can't just give these awards to the same people year after year. It begins to look like favoritism. Move over Beyonce and Jay-Z. Although your music is good it's time to step aside. Go raise your family and give others a chance.

  3. Jay Z accepting to perform determines him an award. you scratch my back, i scratch yours kind of thing. This shit happens all the time. Birdie says Beyonce did this one year for a reputable award show. the award show practically begged her to perform cause they knew what her star power and value would bring to the annual show. In return guaranteed her an award. Other artists have done this in the past also. im not only getting at Bey.

  4. Probably the only rapper with the most classic album cuts that are non singles in history
