Tonight some of the biggest artists in music are coming together for this year’s Grammy Awards, but one person who won’t be in the building is Frank Ocean.
The singer has decided to boycott the event because he feels the awards show snubs a lot of black artists.
Now he’s slamming the producers on Tumblr.

I wish black people would stop caring about the Grammys. They are racist just like the Oscars. Truth be told they were only created to praise white mediocrity. The only award shows I watch are BET and the Image Awards. They are just going to give all the major awards to Adele any damn way.
Exactly and that’s why I will be watching The Walking Dead instead. I will catch Bey’s performance on YouTube. I’m done with the Grammys.
I’ll be watching TWD instead as well. I can’t deal with the Grammys anymore.
I watched RHOA and TWD instead. I’m going off to watch her and Bruno’s performance on YouTube when TWD is over.
Agreed. I don’t even feel like watching. They pull the same stunts every year. I hated when Bey lost to Beck and Kendrick lost to Taylor.
He told the truth but more black artists need to join him. They snub black artists 95% of the time.
I understand why he’s staying at home and I respect his choice.
The Grammys needs to do better. The snubs with black artists has been ridiculous for a long time. The only awards they want to give up is rap and urban awards. Smh.
Rihanna and Beyonce are getting snubbed left and right tonight. This is why they need to stop going to these white washed award shows. What’s the point?
Well Frank spilled the tea because out of 17 nominations between Bey and Rih, they only won 2 and to be frank, Rih didn’t win one at all. Anti is her best album to date so that’s really messed up. And I’m not surprised they didn’t let Bey win anything outside of the urban categories. That’s typical of the sh-tty a-s Grammys. I hope black artists boycott the Grammys from now on but that would make too much sense!
