Kanye West was among the prominent artists who skipped the Grammys.

Drake, Frank Ocean and Justin Bieber said they didn't show up because they don't believe the award show does a good job representing black and/or young music.

21-time Grammy winner Ye's reps implied that West was also skipping out because he didn't think the show paid proper respect to black artists.

In a new interview with Katie Couric, Kanye's Chicago buddy Chance The Rapper seemed to confirm that as the reason.

"We talked about the Grammys for a long time," Chance said, adding West thought it "didn't make sense" to show up. "I think it's the reason why a lot of people didn't show up," Chance explained of 'Ye's decision.
Should black (and young) artists boycott the Grammys in the future?
