The rapper gives his inputs on the producers discussing his absence from the award show this year.
Frank Ocean‘s album ‘Channel Orange’ won some serious categories at the 2013 Grammy Awards. In a recent podcast with Rolling Stone Now, Grammy producer/writer duo – Ken Ehrlich and writer David Wild respectively, voiced their opinion on the rapper’s decision to opt out of submitting his 2016 album ‘Blonde’ due to his “faulty 2013 performance” at the award ceremony.
The two spoke about their difficulties while working with the rapper on his performance, stating that the performance was “faulty” and the rapper did not understand that his vision “would not be suited for TV.”
Ocean took to his Tumblr account to slam the producers of the show as well as criticize the fact that Taylor Swift’s “1989” won Album of The Year over Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp A Butterfly.” Read his full statement here:
This odd choice of voting was highlighted when Adele’s album “25” won Album of The Year over Beyonce’s “Lemonade.” Solange Knowles took to Twitter to lend her support to the singer as well as her sister’s snub from the win. Even Adele took matters into her own hands and reportedly broke her Grammy into two to share it with the “Hold Up” singer.
Cultural bias can shove it with humans like these existing on the planet.
