KXIP vs KKR Live Score

A Tribe Called Quest's final album, We Got it from Here...

The rapper then goes on to accuse the Grammys of using the group for a performance at 2017 Grammy Awards but not showing them love this year.

The Weeknd's "Starboy" was released in 2017 to critical acclaim but the record, which features the hit title-track, only earned one nomination for Best Urban Contemporary Album. Thank You 4 Your Service featured guest appearances from stars including Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar and Andre 3000 among others.

"Y'all Grammy n-- ... y'all... f- y'all", Q-Tip says.

"We closed y'all show and we don't get no fucking nominations?" the rapper/producer said referencing Tribe's performance a year ago shortly after the death of Phife Dog.

"We were the most black-cultured group out-that's all we stood on", Q-Tip says. That's all we stood on, that's all we represented. The last Tribe album? "I don't give a fuck". Vince Staples, who failed to receive a nomination, blasted the show as well in since-deleted tweets.

Swift's sixth album reputation - the best-selling record of 2017 - was not eligible for the 2018 Grammy awards (it will be for 2019), but could have received a nod for the album's first single "Look What You Made Me Do". You think a n- wanted to f--' go out there and perform after I lost my man?

One Direction fans were upset to find that three One Direction members - Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Liam Payne - had been ignored in the nominations. And in several videos posted on his Instagram page, Q-Tip didn't hold back as he slammed the organisation for not recognising their album We Got It From Here.

Grammy nominations were released today, and as happens every year, people were quick to point out artists snubbed by the Recording Academy.
