Frank Ocean Says Not Submitting for Grammys Is His 'Colin Kaepernick Moment'


Frank Ocean opened up about his decision not to submit his latest albums ‘Endless’ or ‘Blonde’ for Grammy nominations in a rare interview with the New York Times.

Of his decision, he says

 “It just doesn’t seem to be representing very well for people who come from where I come from, and hold down what I hold down. I think the infrastructure of the awarding system and the nomination system and screening system is dated. I’d rather this be my Colin Kaepernick moment for the Grammys than sit there in the audience.”

In addition to his thoughts on the Grammys, Frank opened up about what he’s been up to in the four years since ‘Channel Orange,’ why he didn’t do much promotion after the release of his albums, his love life, traveling the world, and more.
