If you mess with Frank Ocean, you mess with Kanye.
Frank Ocean's insanely anticipated dual albums (Blonde and Endless) have been deemed ineligible for Grammy consideration because they were submitted after the award show's September 30 deadline.
Yup, that glorified two-disk panty dropper that made everyone immediately forget for a few moments how bad 2016 is and that we're all subject to crippling student debt has been robbed of its chance to take home the 300 trophies it would have for sure won at this year's show.
Nobody is more furious about this than Kanye.
While doing a show during his Saint Pablo Tour at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Mr. West expressed his anger at the committee's decision, saying,
Yeezy is talking about the scrapped Fame Kills Tour that was supposed to happen in late 2009/early 2010. The incident that Kanye is referring to is how Lady Gaga's single Grammy nomination in 2009 led to her being ineligible in 2010 to receive Best New Artist consideration.
This led to a revision of the rules that allowed Lady Gaga to maintain eligibility.
Kanye is arguing the same leeway should be given to Frank Ocean under the circumstances.
He continued his rant,
YUP! Unless the Grammys figure its shit out, we could be experiencing the show without Kanye, whose Life of Pablo album was arguably the biggest record drop of the year.
Kanye has always been a vocal supporter of Ocean's albums, fangirling about his music to the radio industry as a whole right after both records were released.
West finished up his speech at Oracle with a levelheaded call not to have the Grammy committee be such wet blankets, telling the audience,
DO THE RIGHT THING, THE GRAMMYS!
