After his 24 hour instagram ban, a 30k+ signed petition to get him dropped from the Coachella, Kanye has also been pulled from Grammy performance at this years ceremony. The ironic aspect of all this is, the rapper will be allowed to attend the ceremony and receive any award he may win. Yet he cannot perform at the ceremony. Many speculated that this decision came after Kanye’ had some not so nice things to say about Trevor Noah. Trevor Noah is a talkshow host who will be hosting the ceremony. The controversial rapper went on a tirade against Noah after spoke out against his recent behavior.
Roc-A Fella founder and former CEO Dame Dash was approached by TMZ and had an earful concerning the topic. “Kanye don’t give a fuck about the Grammys,” Dash said. “We make our own Grammys. I’m not trying to fit into somebody else’s system. So we just create our own so we ain’t gotta worry about nobody else’s rules.… It’s not for them to judge who’s hot. It’s for us. They really shouldn’t be giving us the awards. We should be giving them the awards. They gotta respect our culture.”
Kanye Pulled From Grammy Performance, But Can Attend
Dame’s statement mirrors what rapper The Game recently posted on his IG concerning Kanye. Game held nothing back with his post.
“Time & time again they show us that they only want to STEAL the culture, not allow you to ever be their equals,” he wrote in the caption. “In a more than obvious move for reasons of minuscule actions…. The Grammys have at the last minute decided to pull @kanyewest from performing on the show as if we didn’t know it was coming.
“Could be because @trevornoah is hosting and there was a conversation held amongst his team & the academy that led to the decision or because Ye’s account was suspended just days ago for reasons unknown especially in a world where all the negativities of the world can be found on the same app with no repercussions or suspensions. We’ll just say it’s all of the above & a continuous disrespect for us & all that we have brought to the table in entertainment, media & sports over the last 100 years especially.”
