Rapper Snoop Dogg is the most recent to criticize the Grammy Awards for continually ignoring him.
Tha Doggfather vented his anger on Instagram on Monday (February 6) at the Recording Academy for never bestowing him with a golden gramophone during his illustrious 30-year career.
Snoop shared a tweet that included a snapshot of the rappers with the most Grammy awards, including JAY-Z (24), Kanye West (24), Kendrick Lamar (17), Eminem (15), and Pharrell (13).
The Long Beach native reminded people in his post that despite receiving more than a dozen nominations over the years, he has yet to join that exclusive list, having won exactly zero Grammy Awards.
Spock Dogg. twenty nominations 0 wins,” he wrote beside an emoji of a cheering crowd.
In addition to being nominated for Best Rap Song (Drop It Like It’s Hot, 2005), Best Rap Solo Performance (Gin and Juice, 1995), Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (Beautiful, 2004), and Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group (“Still D.R.E., 2000), Snoop Dogg has also been nominated for Best Rap Song (Gin and Juice, 1995), Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (Beautiful,
Due to his efforts to Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream and Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly, he has also received two nominations for the prestigious Album of the Year award. In 2014, his Reincarnated LP (which was released under the moniker Snoop Lion) was nominated for Best Reggae Album.
Snoop currently tops the list of rappers with the most nominations but no victories, which also includes 2Pac, Biggie, Nicki Minaj, DMX, Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, and Pusha T. Nas was also a member of this group until King’s Disease won Best Rap Album in 2021, giving him his first Grammy.
Rapper Snoop Dogg is by no means the first to attack the Recording Academy. One of the most outspoken detractors is JAY-Z, who even went so far as to call them out on his 2018 song “Apeshit” after his 4:44 album failed to win any Grammys that year.
He rapped on the Pharrell-produced hit song from his and Beyoncé’s Everything Is Love album, “Tell the Grammy’s screw that 0 for eight garbage.”
In a rare interview with TIDAL earlier this week, Hov discussed past problems with the Grammys and said that, given their significance in pop culture, it stings when they get it wrong.
The truth is that we have the Grammys as our ultimate aim since we were little. All we ask is that they do it correctly. We want it, he declared. “Obviously, music is subjective, but you have to aim for the same thing. All we want for is that. Because we adore it so much, all we want is for them to get it properly.
He continued, “I love this shit so much I want them to get it properly for the culture. I wish I could be there when Michael’s explosion finally came to a head. Our memories of the incident will last a lifetime.
On Sunday, February 5, JAY-Z returned to the Grammys stage and joined DJ Khaled, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, John Legend, and Fridayy in performing his well-known, four-minute “God Did” verse.
