Tip slams Grammys for not nominating A Tribe Called Quest

ABC/Randy HolmesA Tribe Called Quest emcee Q-Tip voiced his shock on Instagram Tuesday after learning the group didn't receive any Grammy nominations for their sixth and final album, We Got it from Here.

Despite critical and commercial success with his 2017 release Starboy, The Weeknd only received one nomination at next year's Grammys, for Urban Contemporary Album. "That's what we represented", Tip said. I'm sick of y'all f*cking Grammys n*ggas, man. Y'all f*cking get us to get out there to perform past year as coons and sh*t and y'all don't give us no f*cking nomination?

Although Q-Tip's beef with the Grammys feels legitimate, A Tribe Called Quest is probably more the victim of poor timing than anything. This f*cking album that we just put out - this last Tribe album- it stands with everybody else's shit that's up there. While they've been trying to take some initiative to have fair representation of everyone throughout the years but the fact of the matter is, the Grammy's use an album's commercial success to define who gets included in their nominations instead of the critical success. "I don't give a fuck". I'm sick of y'all f*ckin' Grammy ni**as, man!

Respect to everybody who's nominated and all that, but whatever, I'm speaking for mine. The Grammys will go down on January 28th, 2018 and today we get a look at this year's nominees. Ya didn't even give Bob Marley the fucking Grammy. The last Tribe album? We don't get shit? I'm exhausted of bitin' my tongue all the f*ckin' time and trying to be nice and sh*t. Marvin [Gaye] only got f*ckin' one.

"You mothafuckin right I'm hot", he said. Jimi [Hendrix] ain't got none and shit. "F*ck y'all Grammy ni**as, f*ck y'all!"
