Kanye West declares he’ll skip GRAMMYs if Frank Ocean is not nominated

Never one to mince his words, rapper Kanye West made another announcement at a concert following last week’s admission that he and fellow rapper Jay Z are not in the best of terms. During a stop in Oakland while on his Saint Pablo Tour the rapper made a case for his friend and singer Frank Ocean taking an example from pop artiste Lady Gaga. “Gaga wasn’t nominated for Best New Artist, right? But they wanted her to perform at the show; they wanted her to open. So the Grammys secretly changed something about the nominations in order to nominate her, in order for her to perform in the show. Now, Frank Ocean, on the other hand, is very vocal that his album wasn’t nominated for the Grammys, right? Since he’s vocal, no one wants to say nothing about it,” he continues, “If his album’s not nominated in no categories, I’m not showing up to the Grammys.”
