The 65th Grammy Awards were back in full swing on Sunday, kicking off a night of music filled with unexpected results, historic triumphs, tributes to artists like the late rapper Takeoff, and the 50th anniversary of hip-hop. However, Snoop Dogg was definitely not happy with the Recording Academy as he recently called out Grammys for snubbing him his whole career.
Tha Doggfather vented his anger on Instagram on Monday at the Recording Academy for never awarding him with a golden gramophone during his illustrious career of 30 years. Snoop shared a tweet that included a screenshot 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 highlighted the fact in his caption that despite receiving more than a dozen nominations over the years, he has yet to be added to that renowned list, having received exactly zero Grammy awards.
“Snoop dogg. 20 nominations. 0 wins.”
Snoop Dogg has received nominations for the Grammy Awards in a number of categories, including 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).
The rapper has also received two nominations for the coveted Album of the Year award for his contributions to Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly and Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream, and his 2014 Best Reggae Album-nominated Reincarnated LP was nominated as well.
