West, who's competing against fellow rappers in Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song categories, insists that his critically-acclaimed 'Yeezus' album deserves more Grammy nominations.
Kanye West is not happy with the fact that he only scored two nominations at the upcoming Grammy Awards with his "Yeezus" album. The rapper vented his frustration in front of fans who attended his recent concert.
West, who's on his ongoing "Yeezus" tour, visited the U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona, on Tuesday, December 10. During that night's show, Kim Kardashian's fiance insisted that his latest studio effort deserved more nominations.
"I'm 36 years old and I have 21 Grammys. That's the most Grammys of any 36-year-old," he said. "Out of all of those 21 Grammys, I've never won a Grammy against a white artist. And 'Yeezus' is the top one or two album on every single list. But only gets two nominations from the Grammys."
"What are they trying to say? Do they think that I wouldn't notice? Do they think that, someway, I don't have the power to completely diminish all of their credibility at this moment?" he continued.
West, who's nominated in categories Best Rap Album for "Yeezus" and Best Rap Song for "New Slaves", is also apparently mad because his latest studio effort wasn't considered suitable for the prestigious Album of the Year.
"And people come to me and congratulate me on those two nominations. f**k those nominations!" he added.
