Many big artists have had issues with the Grammys in recent years. In 2022 Drake withdrew himself from the nominees’ list and the year before that, the Weeknd expressed his discontent with the Recording Academy, threatening to boycott its future events in protest of the anonymous voting system.
Eminem, a Detroit icon and one of the best lyricists of all time, has also been highly critical of the annual awards ceremony, vowing to “never go to the Grammys again” and accusing them of “stiffing” the artists who actually deserve the win while using their names to get the”selling point” for the show.
Despite declining popularity, it appears that the Grammys are still going strong since they recently hosted the 65th annual event. The show drew a lot of criticism for a variety of reasons, and now Snoop Dogg has joined in the fun.
The 51-year-old iconic rapper threw shade at Grammys via his Instagram post, calling out the award show for never giving him the dub. Snoop shared a picture of the most decorated hip-hop artists with a caption:
“Snoop Dogg. 20 nominations. 0 wins.”

It is no secret that the Grammys have made some questionable decisions throughout the years, particularly in recent ones.
Despite having the biggest album in 2020, the Recording Studion did not include Weeknd in any of their nominations in 2021. Drake expressed his support for his fellow musician on Instagram, writing:
“We should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards and just accept that what once was the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artists that exist now and the ones that come after.”
Another controversial choice made by the Recording Academy this year was to award Harry Styles the “Best Album of the Year” instead of Beyonce. Jay-Z commented on this on Monday, saying:
“The truth is, we grew up wanting to be on the Grammys, and it was our goal and we just want them to get it right. Obviously, music is subjective, but you got to be in the ballpark. That is all we want. We just want them to get it right because we love it so much.”
