Looks like Ye wasn’t kidding about the whole Frank Ocean thing and it looks like he’s picked up some followers with him too.

Kanye West and Drake were EACH nominated for 8 Grammy awards this year, while Bieber earned 4 nods. Ye stated in the past that if Frank Ocean, who arguably dropped one of the best albums of the year with Blond, wasn’t nominated than he would boycott the prestigious award show. Turns out Frank didn’t even bother submitting his work for consideration this year because he like many artists feel like the awards ceremony is completely outdated.

According to TMZ, a big reason Kanye is skipping is because he feels that every time he loses (mind you he’s got 21 Grammy awards), it’s to a white singer and Ye doesn’t think the voting members will look passed that this year either.

Drake on the other hand is busy on his Boy Meets World Tour throughout Europe and won’t be able to make it out to the awards ceremony. (It’s not like they even air the hip-hop awards portion anymore besides maybe for “Best Rap Album” like they did with Kendrick last year).

Bieber feels the Grammy’s are irrelevant and don’t recognize younger talent in 2017. Everyone has their reasons so we’ll see how this plays out and if these 3 will be getting any awards.

Sources close to TMZ say there’s no real animosity or anger like there was with the #OscarsSoWhite, but a lot of artists think the Grammy’s are an irrelevant show because they don’t appreciate the newer generations. Thinks could change though, but right now it’s looking like 3 of The Grammy’s biggest draws won’t be there.
