Lil Wayne Earns 3 Nominations At The 2023 GRAMMY Awards (And 2 More)

Lil Wayne Earns 3 Nominations At The 2023 GRAMMY Awards - And 2 More

The nominations for the 65th Annual Grammy Awards have been announced and Lil Wayne has received a total of three.

Wayne was nominated in the “Song Of The Year”, “Best Rap Performance” and “Best Rap Song” categories all for his work on DJ Khaled’s “God Did” single, which also features Rick Ross, JAY-Z, John Legend and Fridayy.

Both Khaled’s God Did and Jack Harlow’s Come Home The Kids Miss You albums are nominated in the “Best Rap Album” category, and Machine Gun Kelly’s Mainstream Sellout project is nominated in the “Best Rock Album” category. I believe this means that if any of these albums win, Weezy will receive a Grammy award as he is featured on them.

For the ceremony, the 2023 GRAMMYs will be taking place February 5th from the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California. You can see what competition Tunechi has after the jump below. Good luck Tune!

Throwback Thursday: Lil Wayne Talks Christmas, Stacey Dash, The Boondocks, Fame & More

As it is #ThrowbackThursday today, we can check out a Lil Wayne interview with 97.9 The Box radio station in Houston, Texas from back in 2007 around Christmas time.

In the conversation, Weezy talked about his passion for rap, his tattoos including getting Jay Z’s “Lucky Me” song title tattooed on his neck and lyrics from the verse on his leg (he used them at the end of “Mr. Carter” too), creating his “Gossip” track, what he wanted for Christmas, what presents he bought his daughter Reginae Carter for Christmas, and much more.

Tunechi also discussed being too famous and how that effects his privacy, the white cup, his relationship with Karrine Steffans aka Superhead, what New Year’s resolution he had, appearing on “The Boondocks“, Stacey Dash, his thoughts on the GRAMMY Awards, and revealed his favorite collaborations at that moment in time were Natasha Bedingfield’s “Love Like This” remix and Playaz Circle’s “Duffle Bag Boys” single. You can hear the full convo below that even includes Tune spitting a verse from “A Milli“!

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.”
