Earlier today, Wale got on Twitter and complained about not getting any Grammy nominations.
He also mentioned that Kendrick Lamar -- who had 11 nomination -- hadn't returned his phone calls since last time he was nominated.
@JourdanChaTaun ain't answered that phone since the last nomination . I get the Demi lavato treatment from him now. It's hard out here— Wale (@Wale) December 7, 2015
K.Dot's TDE compadre Jay Rock responded to that seeming barb by making reference to Wale's feud with label mate Meek Mill last month.
Wale contacted the Shade Room to clarify that he wasn't trying to diss Lamar, but also understands why Jay Rock may have thought he was.
Ppl will try to stir the pot ... But that's way the "industry is now. I just said I had been [un]able to reach homie for quite some time. But times where people stir the pot it's easy to take things negatively. There's no beef. No way I could even bark up that tree...My business isn't strong enough. I got respect for Jay Rock as he felt like maybe I was slighting ... But I'm very upfront when there's ... "shade."... I'm sorry to inform, but there is none right now. I know people will stir the pot and understand Jay Rock's position ... I answered a fan question with an honest answer .. Hope this clears up some of this."
