The 2015 Grammy nominations for best rap album released earlier today.
Obviously, those six albums–while satisfying the general public–aren’t necessarily what the Hip-Hop establishment considers 2014’s best efforts. Sure, they might’ve sold the most or done whatever it is the recording industry considers successful nowadays, but several of those albums noticeably lacked critical acclaim that would make them proper candidates. So it goes.
However, one 2014 album that was not only a critical darling but a radio smash that many thought would receive at least a nomination was YG’s My Krazy Life. It didn’t. YG and the album’s producer, DJ Mustard, weren’t having it.
In response to the Grammy’s slight, YG dropped the Los Angeles Leakers-tagged track “2015 Flow,” which can be heard below. Complex notes that YG recorded it in response to the snub, but the rapper has given no indication on social media if that’s the case.
If it makes the Los Angeles emcee any happier, TSS did bestow him a 4.5-cig rating earlier this year. Even if the worth of My Krazy Life is lost on Grammy voters, hey, we at least enjoyed it.
