After renowned artistes such as Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd, Halsey, Teyana Taylor and Elle Goulding slammed the 2021 Grammys for different reasons, it is now multiple award-winning rapper Lil Wayne who has questioned the Recording Academy for neither involving him nor inviting him for the award ceremony.

The 38-year-old rapper, who has won a total of five Grammys including the Best Rap Album for ‘Tha Carter III’ in 2009 and Best Rap Performance in 2017 for ‘No Problem', took to his official Twitter account and questioned the reason for the snub. "As an artist, when I see da Grammys coming up & I’m not involved nor invited; I wonder. Is it me, my musik, or just another technicality? I look around w respect & wonder competitively am I not worthy?! Then I look around & see 5 Grammys looking bak at me & I go to the studio."

Social media users did not waste any time to come up with their answers where a majority of them called him out for supporting President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential elections. Speaking on the same lines, one user posted, “Lost all respect....TRUMP SUPPORTER....” Another expressed, “To be fair, you haven't done anything Grammy worthy since Carter 3, but thats my opinion. Alot of the artists with noms this year ain't deserving either so, i wouldn't even sweat it. Just make music because you love to make music or don't do it at all.”

One user added, “Love your music but you betrayed your people for the white man. Hope you get that pardon you was seeking. Sad!” One individual tweeted, “A Grammy is not what you should be worried about. Why You stood on stage with trump is what you should be thinking about real talk. That was a slap in the face on so many levels. Zero respect.” Another added, “Trump has your Grammy sell out. I’ll Never buy your music again ...Hopefully Trump’s 74 mill voters will.” One person said, “Isn’t that guy Lil Wayne the guy who was stepping all over the American flag in the floor? Yeah, that’s why you weren’t invited!”



 



 



 



 



 



 

The ‘A Milli’ hitmaker faced a lot of heat when he met Donald Trump before the elections in October 2020, and it appeared as if he supported him, which did not really go down well with many. The Young Money boss had posted a picture of him and Trump on Twitter where both of them can be seen posing while giving thumbs-up. He had captioned the pic as, “Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”



 

Lil Wayne had name-dropped Trump earlier in songs such as ‘Racks on Rack,’ rapping, “get money like Donald Trump,” and had extended his support for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton back in 2016.

On the work front, the hip-hop icon dropped his 13th studio album ‘Funeral’ in January 2020 followed by mixtapes ‘No Ceilings 3- Side A’ and ‘No Ceilings 3- Side B’ in November and December 2020 respectively.
