The King of the South brings the streets something new to contemplate, having recently expressed his thoughts on hip-hop and the Grammys. According to the Light em up trapper, the culture is being somewhat undermined when it comes down to awards, with individuals failing to recognize potential in the game.
“The hip-hop community isn’t being heard the way it should be. I don’t think it’s enough young urban socialites on the board for us to have a clear voice. You can look at the list of people who’ve never won a Grammy to see that. Tupac and B.I.G. have never won a Grammy, Snoop Dogg has never won a Grammy. That kinda says a lot.”
Not only this, the Atlanta artist now has high hopes for his Hustle Gang associate Iggy Azalea, in winning ‘Rap Album of the Year.’
“It’s whatever is commercial is successful, and whatever plays the most on the radio, which is why I think Iggy is going to win it. I don’t think that’s nothing she has to be ashamed of, that’s something she should be proud of.
Off the list, that’s the only one that has benefited my campaign. I’m rockin’ with who’s rockin’ with me.”
