Despite scoring six nominations at the 63rd Grammy Awards, rapper Roddy Ricch went back home empty-handed and this made his loyal fans furious. Taylor Swift and Dua Lipa also had the same number of nods but they were in luck as the former bagged one award whereas, the latter scooped three big awards.

Roddy Ricch was up for Song of the Year for ‘The Box’, Rap Song of the Year for ‘The Box’ and ‘Rockstar’ with DaBaby, Record of the Year for ‘Rockstar’, Best Rap/Sung Performance for ‘Rockstar’ and Rap/Sung Performance for ‘The Box’. The acclaimed rapper, unfortunately, could not win a single award. The 22-year-old hip-hop artist also performed at this year’s Grammys. He floored the viewers with ‘The Box’ and his new single ‘Heartless.’ The Internet left no stone unturned to slam the Grammys as they felt Ricch got robbed.
