Newly signed Roc Nation artist T.I. was a guest on DJ Drama’s Streetz Is Watchin satellite radio show on Shade 45 last night (Feb. 27), but the show was stolen by Young Thug who crashed the party a third of the way into the interview giving his opinion on the Grammys.
The highly coveted award show definitely had its signature moments with Kendrick Lamar bringing the house down and The Weeknd doing his thing. But all the Slimes want to know why Thugger wasn’t invited. “I think next year we going on,” YT said. “I had 24 hits on the Top 100. 24 of them was top 5. Why didn’t I [go to the Grammys?]”
He added, “I don’t understand it though. Politics? I want every Grammy. We gonna live through this. I’m telling you I want to go.”
As far as apparel goes, Thug was asked to describe what his red carpet get up would be, and the answer was definitely very “Young Thug.” “I might be barefeeted with $10,000 toe rings on with Fred Flinstone’s dress [that] cost $140,000,” he said, “I don’t care what I might do.”
Before Thugger crashed the party, Tipp dropped some gems including his thoughts on the lack of diversity in the 2016 Oscars. “I feel two things. They are absolutely correct in all of their claims that the Oscars are so white that they disregard the contributions of African Americans or minority talent,” the Kang said. “I also feel like the Oscars cater to a very middle America, upper echelon, sophisticated, who’s who of old motherfuckers in Hollywood. Why the fuck are we looking to them for our recognition? Why are we still looking to them to validate us?”
