Snoop Dogg Shades Grammys Organizers After Record Nominations Without A Win

The Grammy Awards ceremony was held over the weekend. As usual, it sparked much discussion about which artists deserved awards but were overlooked by the Recording Academy. The coveted Album of the Year award was won by Taylor Swift’s “Midnights.” Still, despite their remarkable works in different categories, many talented artists such as SZA, Beyonce, and Lana Del Rey were snubbed.

Speaking of nominations without wins, it’s worth noting that Lana Del Rey, who has been widely acclaimed for her music, was nominated four times for her album “Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under the Ocean?” and her song “A&W.” She was also nominated for her collaboration with Jon Baptiste on “Candy Necklace.” Still, unfortunately, she did not win any awards, leaving her with 11 nominations without a single win. Similarly, Nicki Minaj, a talented rapper, was overlooked despite being nominated twice this year, bringing her total number of nominations to 12 with no wins.

It is a surprise that Snoop Dogg, one of the most legendary figures in rap music history, has never won a Grammy despite being nominated a whopping 16 times. The ‘Doggfather’ also seemed to echo these thoughts on social media, as he posted an article mentioning his zero Grammies.

This begs the question of whether the Recording Academy prioritises each nominee’s merit and award based on artistic excellence and impact. This is important not only for the artists’ careers but also for the fans who support them. It’s crucial that awards of such grandeur as this become more inclusive, diverse, and representative of the broader music industry.
