Last year at this time, Nicki Minaj was celebrating her three Grammy nominations for “Best New Artist,” “Best Rap Album,” and “Best Rap Performance,” but this year she’s pissed.
The “Freedom” rapper has officially found herself on the despised “snubbed list.” Nicki Minaj made her Grammy debut last year, but this year, she will not get the opportunity to offend the Catholics two times in a row.
We can’t really put a finger on why the “Moment For Life” rapper wasn’t nominated this year, but maybe, arriving on the Grammy red carpet with a Pope impersonator or her down right terrifying performance of “Roman Holiday” has the Academy not wanting to see Ms. Minaj for years to come.
After receiving word that the Roman Reloaded rapper didn’t get a nomination for “Best Rap Album,” Nicki’s co-manager and longtime manager of Lil Wayne, Cortez Bryant, hopped on Twitter to share his disgust, stating:
“Congrats to @LilTunechi and @Drake and @Hit_Boy on their Grammy Noms butttt they was on some bullshit for not nominating @NICKIMINAJ”
Nicki Minaj’s manager isn’t the only manager calling foul over Grammy snubs.
Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun has thrown a flag on the play, after the “Right Here” singer’s Believe album failed to charm the Academy this year.
Despite not being nominated this year, Nicki Minaj’s YMCMB family members Drake and Lil Wayne received five nominations collectively. Drake picked up three nominations, while Lil Wayne picked up two.
Nicki Minaj’s re-release album, The Re-Up, was released on November 19 and is currently available at selected retailers.
