As one of the biggest musical events is getting closer, a lot of hip-hop artists are announcing that they will not perform at the Grammy awards.
Names like Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino refused to perform, after being approached. This happens on the premise of the show “alienating” hip-hop stars after they lost in prestigious categories multiple times.
“The fact of the matter is, we continue to have a problem in the hip-hop world,” said Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich. “When they don’t take home the big prize, the regard of the academy, and what the Grammys represent, continues to be less meaningful to the hip-hop community, which is sad.”
Besides them, Ariana Grande also announced that she won’t perform, in the last minute, on February 10, when the Awards are set to take place.
