Kanye West may be leading this year’s Grammy nominations, but he was snubbed for Album of the Year. Yeezy is up for seven Grammy awards but is noticeably missing from perhaps the most import award of the night.  While in Chicago for the “Watch the Throne” tour Yeezy took the time to tell him hometown crowd why he thinks he was snubbed. Watch what he said after the jump.


“Something I figured out earlier today—because you know, everybody came to me last night like, ‘Congratulations!’ because you know I’m leading the Grammy nominations. Like we always do it at this time,” he said. “But, people focus, they say, ‘You ain’t have Album of the Year or Record of the Year.’ But I figured out though, that’s my fault for dropping Watch the Throne and Dark Fantasy the same year. I should have just spaced it out a little bit more. But don’t worry, because me and Hov gon’ keep on making shit.”
