Diddy: “The Grammys Don’t Respect Black Music”

Published: Sunday 26th Jan 2020 by David

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.

Do you agree?

    Right, ok…

    Old ass man trying to get some media attention by looking as though he has something of substance to talk about.

    I’m sorry, but there are tons of unsung and overlooked artists out there who make far better music than Jay and Bee. All you have to do is just let pandora play…Bee nor Jay can’t win them all!

    Umm she has 23 and he has 22. I’m guessing TGJ is throwing their idols names in there, instead of looking at the big picture and recognizing great black artists who have never gotten the recognition they deserved. 2Pac, Biggie, Diana Ross, Nas, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Public Enemy, Bob Marley, Brian McKnight, Rakim, Busta Rhymes, DMX are black artists who have made great, memorable music and classics, but have never gotten a Grammy for their work!

    Beyonce and Jay-Z have gotten awards that they did not deserve. They were never snubbed 🤷🏽‍♂️

      Songs like Single Ladies should not have won best R&B song. She deserved song of the year, but none of those R&B categories.

    Well MAINSTREAM BLACK ARTISTS don’t respect BET and Soul Train award shows (even though Diddy attends them often). STOP begging for white people’s acknowledgment. JayZ and Bey NEED to attend black award shows then maybe the shows will grow with a better budget and up-and-coming artists could rub elbows with the A-listers and receive some gems. STOP BEGGING! SUPPORT YOUR OWN!

    Stop using Beyoncé and Jay Z for examples of being snubbed. Just because they aren’t nominated for everything doesn’t mean that they are snubbed.

    Maybe the genre should cut down on the N-wird, homophobic lyrics and misogynistic content and the grammys might give it a listen.
