Roddy Ricch Disses ‘Lame’ Kanye West for Slamming the GRAMMYs?

Published: Monday 15th Mar 2021 by Rashad

With mentions in the categories of Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Rap Song, and more, Roddy Ricch entered the 2021 GRAMMYs as one of the night’s most nominated acts.  But much like Jhene Aiko, Chloe x Halle, Doja Cat, and others at the same showing, multiple nominations didn’t translate into any wins.

The snub didn’t leave Ricch bitter, he later revealed, and the stance of gratitude is one he’d wish older emcees would adopt.

“They gon’ give the award to whoever they gon’ give the award to and that’s gon’ be what it is. It’s just an award at the end of the day,” he said.

Not long after taking to the GRAMMY stage to crank out a unique showing of ‘Rockstar’ alongside DaBaby, the 22-year-old took to social media to slam his Hip Hop forerunners for not appreciating the acknowledgement the Recording Academy has given them – a feat that he suggests reflects poorly on the entire genre.

Hear it from his mouth inside:

“I be really wanting to talk about a lot of the ni**as that’s in the industry, like, a lot of the Black artists, the older ni**as who been doing all this shit for so long and they be hatin’ on all the young ni**as,” said Roddy. ‘Certain sh*t shouldn’t be tolerated.’

The rapper – who was nominated for 6 trophies at this year’s ceremony – later took aim at Kanye West as the ‘Gold Digger’ hitmaker has made headlines for his rants against the GRAMMYs.  Most notably, he uploaded a video of himself urinating on the golden gramophone in late 2020.

Ricch never called Kanye by name, but fans immediately believed the reference was directed at the Chicago hitmaker.

“And this year this ni**a just pissed on that sh*t. Like, how you think that make the world look at my accomplishment, ni**a? I did all this shit and you pissin’ on sh*t. That sh*t be lame. I don’t really like that sh*t,” Ricch said.


At writing, West has not responded to Ricch’s criticism.

Surprisingly, Kanye – despite his vocal displeasure with the Recording Academy – won an award at last night’s ceremony.  Click here to read more about the historic achievement.

    Kanye isn’t all there anymore, but Roddy Snitch has some nerve. I don’t even know any Roddy Snitch fans. Disgusting and disgraceful. This would be like if Selena Gomez dissed Lady GaGa. Respect those who came before you, b****.

    Roddy is right.. like if y’all don’t care about the Grammys.. why do artist keep submitting their music if they don’t care about winning.. stop submitting it to the grammys and let others who care and want to win get a chance to win..

    Roddy Rich is a Grammy winner already he won in BEST RAP PERFORMANCE for Racks In The Middle in 2020. But yes unfortunately this past Sunday he didn’t win any additional Grammys.

    These young artists are so disrespectful which is why very few of them are able to stay around and be as impactful as a Kanye West. This Roddy dude could’ve given his opinion without all the extra ish.
