Frank Ocean shuns Grammys

Story highlights

  • Ocean released his “Blonde” album which year
  • Kanye West vowed to boycott if Ocean wasn’t nominated

which’s because the singer decided not to submit his long awaited sophomore album, “Blonde,” for consideration.

Ocean, who rarely grants interviews, told the brand new York Times which despite having won two Grammys in 2013, he’s not interested which time around.

“which institution certainly has nostalgic importance,” he said. “which just doesn’t seem to be representing very well for people who come via where I come via, along with hold down what I hold down.”

Ocean pointed to the fact which only a few African Americans have ever won the Grammy Album of the Year award.

“I think the infrastructure of the awarding system along with the nomination system along with screening system is actually dated,” he said. “I’d rather which be my Colin Kaepernick moment for the Grammys than sit there from the audience.”

In October, West took a moment out of his concert while in Oakland to say he might boycott the Grammys if Ocean’s album wasn’t nominated.

“The album I listened to the most which year is actually Frank Ocean’s album,” West said. “I tell you what, if his album’s not nominated in no categories, I’m not showing up to the Grammys.”
