AceShowbiz - Snoop Dogg has expressed his disappointment at the Grammys. The "Drop It Like It's Hot" rapper has called out Grammys as he has been nominated for 19 times but he has never won any.
Turning to his Instagram page just hours before the ceremony began, the 50-year-old rapper, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., sarcastically thanked Grammys for giving him numerous nominations. "Grammys. 19 nominations no wins thanks," he wrote in the caption of a clip from his private flight.
In the quick selfie video, Snoop told those at the awards ceremony, "Y'all have fun at the Grammys." The "Gin and Juice" spitter went on to say, "19 ... I guess I'm 0 for 19," referring to his 19 nominations since his solo rap career started back in the early '90s. He later asked his fans, "How do you feel about that?"
Many of his famous pals and fans cheered on him in the comment of his post. "Black-ish" actor Deon Cole wrote, "You alone matter! Nuff said." Music producer Shawty Redd commented, "They did us like that with sexual seduction smh this s**t crazy‼️"
One fan said, "You don't need that to be the GREAT SNOOP! You got our support and LOVE you already the biggest winner. They will regret it one day!" Another reassured him that "2pac [Tupac Shakur], Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Snoop, Biggie [Notorious B.I.G.], Bob Marley and Diana Ross all have no Grammys ... but are still legends." Someone else said that "Grammy's are overrated" as "the fact you haven't won easily proves this."
A separate fan pointed out, "That's why we have NAACP and BET awards and Hip Hop Award shows FOR US." Another Instagram user penned, "They already choose who wins before they even nominate. Only desperation looks at such things as clarifying achievement. It for the sheep if you ask me, respectfully." A different loyal supporter told Snoop to "hold his head up" as he's "winning everyday."
