Lil Wayne Speaks Out About The Grammy Awards For The Second Time In 3 Months

Lil Wayne Speaks Out About The Grammy Awards For The Second Time In 3 Months

Yesterday afternoon (March 15th), Lil Wayne took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the Grammy Awards with a simple tweet:

“Fuk the Grammys”

There is currently no word on what made Weezy tweet this message; whether it was due to not getting an invite to the annual awards show or not receiving a nomination (his Funeral album was nominated in the “Best Recording Package” category, but unfortunately didn’t win).

This is not the first time that Tunechi has spoke out against the Grammys as just a few months ago in December, Tune tweeted this: “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.”

Lil Wayne Funeral Album Has Been Nominated At The 2021 GRAMMYs

The nominations for the 63rd annual GRAMMY Awards, which will be airing on January 31st on CBS, were announced yesterday and Lil Wayne‘s latest album, Funeral, earned a nod.

However, it is not Wayne that earned the nomination; it is art directors Kyle Goen and Alex Kalatschinow, who are the designers behind the official artwork for Funeral.

In the “Best Recording Package” category, Funeral will go up against other art directors for their work on Coldplay’s Everyday Life, Grouplove’s Healer, Caspian’s On Circles, and Desert Sessions’ Vols. 11 & 12 projects.

Do you think Kyle and Alex have a good chance at winning the “Best Recording Package” award? The name flip on ‘lilwayne’ and ‘funeral’ was dope!

Lil Wayne Talks Funeral, Tyga, Favorite Song, Dropping More Mixtapes In The Future & Compilations From Young Money

Emmanuel Maduakolam from HYPEBEAST Radio‘s “MIC/LINE” series chopped it up with Lil Wayne while promoting his new Young Money collection with fashion brand American Eagle on the rooftop of New Design High School in Manhattan on July 15th.

During their conversation, Weezy spoke on his new clothing line, what drew him to collaborate with American Eagle, being “embarrassed” but also “very grateful” for Tyga’s “Lightskin Lil Wayne” music video, motivation, not having a favorite album of his own, the latest song he records will always be his new favorite song, being excited for his Funeral album, sports, and shared advice for new music artists.

Tune also revealed that the night he won 4 GRAMMY Awards is the most fun he has had so far in his career (but he cannot remember it), he will not stop recording and releasing mixtapes even though he believes tapes are not that important in hip-hop anymore, why he remixes other artist’s beats on his mixtapes, and Young Mula will always drop compilations in the future.

You can listen to the full interview, which even included Tunechi mentioning Tyga is still on YM and that the Funeral title of his new album does not mean what you think it does, after the jump below!
