Snoop Dogg slams the Grammys for snubbing him his entire career.
Snoop Dogg points out he's never won a Grammy Award
Snoop Dogg blasts Recording Academy for snubbing him his whole career.
One day after the 65th Recording Academy’s annual ceremony, Snoop shared an Instagram post highlighting a list of fellow rap artists’ career wins.
On Monday (February 6), The Death Row Records CEO took to Instagram to vent his frustration with the Recording Academy for having never awarded him a golden gramophone throughout his legendary 30-year career.
In his post, Snoop screenshotted a tweet listing the rappers with the most Grammy wins, which included JAY-Z (24), Kanye West (24), Kendrick Lamar (17), Eminem (15) and Pharrell (13).
The West Coast legend reminded folks he has yet to join that illustrious list having received precisely zero Grammys, despite picking up more than a dozen nominations over the years.
“Snoop dogg. 20 nominations. 0 wins,” he wrote along with a sarcastic applause emoji.
Snoop Dogg has been nominated in several Grammys categories including Best Rap Song (“Drop It Like It’s Hot,” 2005), Best Rap Solo Performance (“Gin and Juice,” 1995), Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (“Beautiful,” 2004) and Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group (“”Still D.R.E.,” 2000).
Snoop also has also earned two nods in the coveted Album of the Year category for Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly and Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream, while his Reincarnated LP (which was released under the name Snoop Lion) was up for Best Reggae Album in 2014.
Snoop currently leads the pack when it comes to rappers with the most nominations and no wins, a list that features other overlooked legends such as 2Pac, Biggie, Nicki Minaj, DMX, Ice Cube, Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross and Pusha T. Nas was also part of that group until he snagged his first Grammy in 2021 when King’s Disease won Best Rap Album.
Snoop Dogg recently performed as part of the Recording Academy’s Black Music Collective event in honor of Dr. Dre. Others honored at the pre-Grammys party included Missy Elliott and Lil Wayne.
