Rap Queen Nicki Minaj may reign in history books as the overall most-awarded female Hip Hop act ever, but her trophy case remains devoid of a golden grammophone.
Despite nabbing 9 nods over the last decade, 2020 – the year she nabbed her first two #1 hits on the Hot 100 – saw her shut out from the Recording Academy’s recently unveiled list of 2021 nominees (click here to read the full nominations announcement).
The diss isn’t new to Minaj, as she reaffirmed via Twitter just moments ago when she took to the platform to reflect on the first time she was snubbed by the institution.
See what she said:
Longtime fans of the diva know she is referring to the ceremony’s 54th annual edition (2012) when she was nominated for her 2010 debut studio album, ‘The PinkPrint.’
Battling J. Cole, Skrillex, The Band Perry, and Bon Iver for the honor, the latter – arguably the least popular of all mentioned – walked away with the gold.
An upset indeed, see his acceptance speech below:
