Lil Wayne has called out the Grammys for apparently neglecting to invite him to the upcoming 2021 awards ceremony.
Taking to Twitter, Wayne explained the snub had led him to wonder whether he was “not worthy” of being involved in the event.
“As an artist, when I see da Grammys coming up & I’m not involved nor invited; I wonder. Is it me, my music, or just another technicality?” he said.
“I look around w respect & wonder competitively am I not worthy?!”
Despite his doubts, Wayne went on to reveal the reason he realised that he is not the problem.
“Then I look around & see 5 Grammys looking bak at me & I go to the studio,’ he concluded.

Lil Wayne is certainly not the first artist to have spoken out against the Grammys in the wake of the 2021 ceremony and nominees announcement.
Most notably, The Weeknd took aim at the awards for failing to nominate him despite the success of his 2020 album After Hours.
“The Grammys remain corrupt… you owe me, my fans and the industry transparency,” he said back in November.
Meanwhile, Justin Bieber was left less than impressed after being nominated in the Pop category instead of R&B for album Changes.
“For this not to be put in that category feels weird considering from the chords to the melodies to the vocal style all the way down to the hip-hop drums that were chosen it is undeniably and unmistakably an R&B album!” he said in a statement.
