The 63rd Grammys Awards recently announced the nominees for the event and there seems to be a lot of artistes who were not pleased with the list.
There are others who decided to remind the Recording Academy of its previous faults with Nicki Minaj being at the top of that list.
The rapper went on her Twitter account reacting to the 2021 Grammy nominations while recalling an award she lost for best new artiste back in 2012.
She candidly said that they gave it to the "white man" Bon Iver, leading to thousands of reactions from Twitter fans.
As for The Weekend, he was angered at not being nominated even for a single award despite a top album that saw several singles top charts according to Brooklyn vegan.
