During a hometown performance at Chicago’s United Center last night, ‘Ye took the spotlight from Jay-Z as he addressed getting snubbed by the Recording Academy, which overlooked his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy for Album of the Year.
“Something I figured out earlier today—because you know, everybody came to me last night like, ‘Congratulations!’ because you know I’m leading the Grammy nominations. Like we always do it at this time,” he said. “But, people focus, they say, ‘You ain’t have Album of the Year or Record of the Year.’ But I figured out though, that’s my fault for dropping Watch the Throne and Dark Fantasy the same year. I should have just spaced it out a little bit more. But don’t worry, because me and Hov gon’ keep on making shit.”
Despite not getting nominated in two of the four major categories, Yeezy led the Grammy nominations with seven nods, beating out six-time nominee Adele.
