Snoop Dogg thanks Grammy for 19 nominations without a win
American rapper Snoop Dogg has sarcastically thanked the organisers of the Grammy Awards for nominating him 19 times without a win.
“Y’all have fun at the Grammys…19… I guess I’m 0 for 19,” he said, referring to his 19 nominations since his solo rap career started in the early ’90s.
The 50-year-old rapper, who was not nominated this year, took to his official Instagram page hours before the 64th Grammy award on Sunday to express his disappointment at the Grammys for being nominated 19 times without winning an award.
“Grammys. Nineteen nominations no win thanks,” the ‘Drop it like it’s hot’ hitmaker wrote in the caption of the video clip from his private flight.
“How do you feel about that?” the 50-year-old rapper further asked his fans.
Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr, was six times nominated for the ‘Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group’.
Two times, the legendary rapper was nominated for the ‘Best Rap Solo Performance’ category of the awards and ‘Best Rap Song’ four times.
Also, he was nominated for the ‘Best Rap/Sung Collaboration’ two times, ‘Album of the Year’ two times, with ‘Best Reggae Album’, ‘Best Rap Song’, and ‘Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals’ once each.
Aside from Snoop Dogg, other notable artistes like rapper Nicki Minaj with ten nominations, D.M.X. with four nominations, including a posthumous nomination at the 2022 Grammy awards.
They include Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G., and The Game, who lost out to The Black Eyed Peas for the ‘Best Rap Performance’ award back in 2006, Katy Perry with 13 nominations.
Others are country singer and ‘The Voice’ judge Blake Shelton with eight nominations, rapper Busta Rhymes, nominated 12 times and legendary singer Diana Ross, who was first nominated at the seventh annual awards ceremony in 1964 for ‘Baby Love’.
She was nominated nearly every year from 1970 to 1982 without a win until she eventually received a lifetime achievement award from the Recording Academy in 2012.
