YG seemingly addressed his Grammy snub in his new song 'Flow.' But that was actually recorded before Blame It On The Streets didn't get nominated.
Yesterday, on Power 106's Big Boy’s Neighborhood, YG made it clear that he was pretty shocked when Blame It On The Streets wasn't among the six nominations for Best Rap Album. "They not going to give me the Grammy," he said. "They going to nominate me for sure."
Y.G. went on to say that although he thought he would be nominated, he knew he wouldn't win because of where he comes from.
"I know that it has to do with me being from the streets, and representing what I represent, and talking about what I talk about ... I'm the people's champ."
"There's some albums that mine is so for sure better than," he continued, and later added that he thinks he had the best rap album of the year.
Iggy Azalea's The New Classic is the odds on favorite to win and she has become a bit of a punching bag because of this. However, YG made it clear that he wasn't talking about her, whom he "came up with," or fellow Los Angelean Schoolboy Q when he was speaking about albums that his was clearly better than.
The other nominated albums come from Eminem, Common, Wiz Khalifa and Childish Gambino.
Do you think YG had the best album of the year?
