Cardi B’s Issues With The Grammys
A few days ago, rap star Cardi B issued a Twitter statement dishing on how she felt about the Grammys organization.
“I do feel that there were some albums, and songs that should have been considered for nominations. Maybe by next year they will get it right. However let’s not forget the Grammys nominated soo many independent black artists this year that don’t get the exposure by blogs, magazines and other awards shows.”

The Grammys has since responded to Weeknd and addressed his headline-generating comments.
