Soap2day – With hits like "What's My Name?" and "Gin and Juice," Snoop Dogg has sold more than 23 million albums in the United States and 35 million albums around the world. However, he has never won a Grammy, which is surprising. Now, after all the talk about the 2023 Grammy Awards, the rapper has spoken out about how upset he is that he has never won a Grammy.
On Monday, February 6, the 51-year-old took to social media to criticize the Recording Academy for not recognizing his music. He named Jay-Z, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, and Pharrell Williams as the five rappers who had won the most awards.
He then said that, even though he had been nominated for many Grammys, he had never won one. "Snoop dogg. 20 nominations. 0 wins, "In the caption, he wrote.
Snoop, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., has been nominated for the most awards of any rapper who has never won one. Like Tupac Shakur, the Notorious B.I.G., Nicki Minaj, DMX, Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, and Pusha T, he ended up in jail.
Officially, the musician from Long Beach was nominated for 16 Grammys over the course of his career, including twice for Album of the Year. His most recent nomination, for Album of the Year, was for his work on Kendrick Lamar's "To Pimp a Butterfly" studio album, which came out in 2015.
With 24 wins, Jay-Z is the hip-hop artist with the most Grammys in history. The Recording Academy, on the other hand, has given him a lot of trouble over the years. Recently, he talked about how he felt about his wife Beyonce Knowles losing Album of the Year to Harry Styles even though she had won many other awards.
In an interview for Tidal on Monday, he said, "I take myself out of the process and hope they just get it right." "I finally thought, "Oh, it's just a marketing thing." You went and made an album, which could help you sell more copies."
Jigga still thinks that "Renaissance" by Bey should have won Album of the Year. ""Look at what it's done to the culture," he said. "Look at how the world's energy has changed. In the club, they play her whole album. I don't think I've ever seen anything like that. Everything, like, in the whole place?! Each remix is great. Everyone is motivated. It has given people ideas. Every new version is better than the last."
The rapper kept saying things like, "We don't get these joints from anyone. We just find them on the street... It makes people more creative. You know how Danger Mouse's 2004 mashup project, "The Black Album had The Grey Album"? The one with Radiohead? It was called "Jaydiohead" and was made by Minty Fresh Beats in 2009. When it just makes you want to make something, that's an album. That's definitely Album of the Year. It's a must."
