Denzel Curry had time today.
Shortly after the The 2023 Grammy nominations have been announced for Best Rap Album, Curry expressed his frustrations on Twitter. The nominated albums are those of DJ Khaled God made, The future I never loved you Jack Harlow’s Go home you miss the kids by Kendrick Lamar Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers, and the Pusha T It’s almost dry.
In a series of tweets, Curry first praised GloRilla before explaining why his album Melt my eyes, see your future should have been named.
“Glo Rilla deserves it but for the rap albums category I can literally name you 10 other albums that were actually good kudos to kdot and push but all this other shit comes bruh… This shit about the money at the end of the day so if that’s what it comes down to I’ll bake my bread In the words of the late great Kimbo Slice Man let me have my bread.
Curry continued, “My album is literally tied to one of the albums that got nominated for a Grammy and I still got robbed. All of my homies who put out solid Top Notch albums this year got robbed. They don’t Don’t care about culture, they only care about building majors 2000 TFS LEARN TO SWIM MELT MY EYEZ LUV LETTER SICK There is also more $OUL PUPPY SOLD SEPARATELY Niggas worked hard and y’all put a price on half ass shit.
He concluded that several of his peers should be nominated, including Smino, JID, Joey Badass, Redveil, Freddie Gibbs, Kenny Mason, Saba, Kenny Beats, Earl Sweatshirt and Key Glock.
Curry has previously criticized mainstream artists. He previously commented on Drake and Kanye West album coversclarifying in a interview with twirl that they shouldn’t make mediocre albums with the resources they have.
“I was looking forward to the Drake album, because Drake always has something. But then when you get them albums, you’re like, ‘What the fuck are you doing?’ “Said Curry. “We don’t even really need to talk about Kanye West, it’s Kanye West. But for [Kanye and Drake] go out and go against each other and make it work with the resources they have. These are the same producers that I have trouble contacting because they don’t see the return. You have all these resources and you have all made substandard albums. I had limited resources and made a great one. This shouldn’t happen.
