Diddy fears that the Grammy awards has never truly respected music created by black artists. The mogul played an important role in the development of careers launched by Biggie Smalls, Faith Evans, Lil Kim, Nicki Minaj, Janelle Monáe and Jennifer Lopez and has now revealed that he suspects the Grammys has never given black acts credit for their contributions to Pop culture.
He shared his thoughts during the speech he gave at Clive Davis’ pre Grammy party.
Truth be told, hip-hop has never been respected by the Grammys. Black music has never been respected by the Grammys.
His remark came after some music enthusiasts took to social media to argue that they feel the same after Beyoncé and Jay Z were supposedly snubbed by the ceremony.
