KRS-One says Grammy ‘ignored' hip hop for 49 years
Legendary rapper KRS-One missed out during Grammy Academy's Hip Hop 50 Show and as it turns out, he did get an invitation from LL COOL J himself but he rejected it. KRS believes Grammy has been neglecting Hip Hop for the past 49 years.
“So when I got the call, I immediately said nah,” KRS said during a recent interview. “First of all, it's the Grammys? You get no respect here. None. Now we respect your existence, we know you exist. And we know that you're the Grammys and we understand that and we respect that. But you ignored Hip Hop for 49 years. At the 50th year, you wanna call us? You couldn't even call on 47 and gear it up to 50. You wait to the 50th year to call Hip Hop's authentic teacha? Nah, you don't get that privilege.”
