    Sad he wasn’t there.

    because he’s a “safe” black rapper. the visual deserved acknowledgement BUT CERTAINLY NOT the song itself. very p*** poor, political decision.

    Absolutely deserved! This song truly represented where our collective minds (the ones who care about humanity) were at in 2018 with Trump and the nonsense and chaos of it all…not just America, but the WORLD…everyone was talking about this song and visual…it debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100…he should develop an album that houses the song…bold and powerful just like the best of hip-hop! Congrats to this talented brotha! 💯

      Absolute yes for that but the song won´t be remembered in some decades, like it used to happen with Record of the Year winners. Mainstream has gone downhill so that´s not really to be expected anymore.

    A lot of folks didn’t realize the messages inside the track. I say Congrats surely his white wife is apart of his journey..🤷🏽‍♂️
