Kanye West Rants About Grammy Voting & Tells Music Critic to Shut Up


ABC/Randy Holmes

Kanye West makes it hard to keep up with his rants.

On Wednesday afternoon, the rapper unleashed another Twitter tirade about his issue with the Grammy Awards and revealed that he wanted to meet with Grammy President Neil Portnow. “I think the Grammys are super important!!!” West wrote, “I know so many cool artists whose hearts have been broken by the politics including mine. We need to fix this.”

West continued, “I feel the Grammy awarding system is way off and completely out of touch.” The rapper then declared: “If I’m not at the show next year then there is no show.”

After saying that A$AP Rocky’s “LSD” video deserved recognition, Kanye questions why Future was also shut out. “You like your black people a certain way also. You wouldn’t have Future perform and that man owned the clubs last summer,” he wrote, “First order of business. We the people need to see Future at the Grammys. We need to see Young Thug at the Grammys. Not just me and Jay [Z] in a suit.”

Prior to unleashing on the annual music ceremony, West also called out Bob Ezrin, a veteran music producer who wrote a negative review of The Life of Pablo.

“Has anybody ever heard of Bob Ezrin???” he tweeted on Tuesday. “What the f*** does he know about rap…I’m tired of old people that have no connection with anything trying to comment on music! Do something relevant… Please don’t speak on me bro ever again!!!”

Meanwhile, Ye concluded that he’s actually in a happy place despite all his recent rants. “I’m happy and free and proud and confident. I’m not crazy. I’m free,” he wrote. “It’s a beautiful time. I love my friends. I love my family. I love people. The human race.” 

He also mentioned that he has a “new album coming this summer.”
