Has Kanye West been pulled from Grammy line-up? The Game hints rapper's racist rant at Trevor Noah was last straw
The Game, who collaborated with Ye on the song ‘Eazy’ seemed agitated asking on Instagram 'When will the BLACK entertainers, athletes' understand
Multiple Grammy-award winner Kanye West was supposed to perform at the 64th edition of the Grammys this year but looks like it is not happening anymore. It is rumored that his racial online rant against Trevor Noah might be the reason behind it. Kanye’s good friend The Game took to Instagram over the weekend to share a detailed post regarding the same. Getting all furious at the award ceremony, The Game revealed that Kanye West has been pulled from the coveted show.
The Game, who recently collaborated with Ye on the song ‘Eazy’ seemed agitated asking on Instagram “When will the BLACK entertainers, athletes, actors, producers, writers, directors, media, etc… figure it out”. He also added a thinking emoticon in the end of the text image he shared. The news comes a day after Kanye was banned from posting on Instagram for 24 hours after sharing a racial post against Noah. For the uninitiated, Noah is hosting this year’s Grammys that are all set to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 3, 2022. A petition also surfaced on the Internet recently where many asked Kanye to be dropped from Coachella 2022.

Has Kanye West been pulled from Grammys?
Sharing a lengthy post with his more than 12 million followers on Instagram, The Game stated, “Time & time again they show us that they only want to STEAL the culture, not allow you to ever be their equals. In a more than obvious move for reasons of minuscule actions…. The Grammys have at the last minute decided to pull @kanyewest from performing on the show as if we didn’t know it was coming.” He continued, “Could be because @trevornoah is hosting and there was a conversation held amongst his team & the academy that led to the decision or because Ye’s account was suspended just days ago for reasons unknown especially in a world where all the negativities of the world can be found on the same app with no repercussions or suspensions.”
The rapper added, “We’ll just say it’s all of the above & a continuous disrespect for us & all that we have brought to the table in entertainment, media & sports over the last 100 years especially. Speak your mind in this country for yourself, family or your people & you’re ostracized immediately & if you push them hard enough they will stop at no ends to try and put an end to you as a whole.” He then said, “I for one, have never been scared to speak my mind even understanding what the consequences may be. I can’t sleep at night knowing I was quiet about issues burning holes in my heart or narratives incorrectly pushed by the mass agenda to create a mind set that the person at hand is krazy or has issues internally that are beyond repair. I say all this to say, I’M WOKE….. & while I am.”
He added, “Lemme remind you that Colin Kapernick still isn’t allowed in the NFL, lynching just became a federal hate crime in 2022 & you can now not be discriminated from employment because of the way you decide to wear your hair…. GEEZ thank you massa for allowing us to slowly progress as a race 100 years at a time after all that was STOLEN from us. The Game concluded, “I’m sure I’ll be the next account suspended for speaking freely on an app created for us to equally share as humans lol. Hella shit be a joke everywhere you turn these days… but let’s keep playing their game until one day somebody WAKES us ALL the f%#! Up!!!”
Kanye West's issues with the Grammys
Kanye has been boycotting the Grammys since 2015. He rushed to the stage after Beck’s ‘Morning Phase’ won Album of the Year over Beyoncé’s self-titled album. He had performed “fourfiveseconds” that evening along with Paul McCartney and Rihanna to express what he really feels about the award show. After Beyonce’s loss Kanye told the press, “The Grammys, if they want real artists to keep coming back, they need to stop playing with us. We aren’t going to play with them no more. Beck needs to respect artistry, he should have given his award to Beyonce”, as reported by Hollywood Life.
‘Grammys need Kanye West more than he needs them’
Social media users dragged Grammys minutes after The Game dropped the bomb on Instagram. “Grammy pulled Kanye West for Trevor Noah? What impact/influence has Trevor Noah made in the music/entertainment industry thst warrants him getting chose over KANYE WEST? Not one thing!! These attempts at trying to keep someone like Kanye quiet and push a narrative is crazy”, said one fan as another posted, “Kanye was really gonna grace the stage at the Grammy’s after boycotting them for years and they pull him. Talk about fumbling an opportunity to try and build your credibility back. Terrible decision making.”

But I can't find a single one of them.” Another posted, “The Grammys thought pulling Kanye West's performance was stopping s**t. We got Coachella and Rolling Loud coming up.
