KRS-One explains why he turned down Grammy’s Hip Hop 50 Show invitation


KRS-One says Grammy ‘ignored' hip hop for 49 years

Legendary rapper missed out during Grammy Academy's 50 and as it turns out, he did get an invitation from 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 ? 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.”
