Kanye West vows to boycott the 2017 Grammys if Frank Ocean doesn't get nominated

Kanye West has threatened to boycott the 2017 Grammy awards if Frank Ocean doesn't get nominated for his two albums Blonde and Endless. Speaking during his show in Oakland, California, West said:

“The album I listen to the most this year is Frank Ocean’s album. I’ll tell you this right now, if his album is not nominated in no categories, I’m not showing up to the Grammys. As artists, we’ve got to come together to fight the bullshit.”
This comes as it was reported neither Blonde nor Endless were even entered for the Grammys before the 30 September deadline, despite being eligible for inclusion.It is also believed to have been a conscious decision by Ocean and his team.

  1. Kanye West can not pressure the nomination committee to give awards to who ever he likes. Kenye West will come and go, we have seen plenty of them to rise and fall. I hope the nomination committee remains independent and unbiased.
