Kanye West Threatens to Boycott the Grammys If Frank Ocean Isn't Nominated [Video]

News

You may have heard this week that Frank Ocean missed the submission deadline to submit 'Blonde' and 'Endless' for this year's Grammys.


Well, Kanye West isn't happy about it. Last night he raved about Frank's album and said that if it's not nominated for a Grammy then he just won't show up.

"The album I listen to the most this year is Frank Ocean's album," Kanye said in the middle of performing the song "Wolves." "I'll tell you this right now: If his album’s not nominated in no categories, I’m not showin' up to the Grammys."

While it may sound absurd, Kanye points out that the Grammys DID change their own nomination rules a few years ago when they wanted Lady Gaga to perform at the ceremony.

Read what Kanye said and watch the clip below.

I don’t know if any of y’all remember, I was supposed to go on tour with [Lady] Gaga. Like about, 6, 7 — a while back. I remember, it was something where she was nominated… She wasn’t nominated for best new artist, right? But they wanted her to perform at the show, they wanted her to open. So the Grammys secretly changed something about the nominations to nominate her in order for her to perform in the show.

Now, Frank Ocean on the other hand is very vocal wasn’t nominated for the Grammys. Since he’s vocal, no one wants to say nothing about it. No one wants to do nothing about it. I’m saying this to y’all, because a lot of people try to make a scene like, ‘I’m so self-centered.’ But the album I listened to the most this year is Frank Ocean’s album. And I’ll tell you this right now: if his album’s not nominated in no categories, I’m not showing up to the Grammys. As artists, we gotta come together to fight the bullshit they been throwing us with. All we need is a fair shot. Let the album lose, let whoever win or lose. My whole point, my purpose, my existence, everything that people try to diss me for is based on just an instant replay plot. Imagine in sports they didn’t have no instant replay plot, and someone could step completely out of bounds.
