Grammy Thoughts.

         After the unfortunate snub that so many of our black artists take every year at the prestigious Grammys. So, many black artists go on accredited for their amazing creativity and hard work. It almost is inevitable that this will happen to several black artists every year.  I am not at all trying to pull the race card but, I think it is truly said that so many of our artists are walked over for the Grammys.  POLITICALLY, I assume record sells qualify your acceptance as an artists. I think this argument is completely unfair.  Underground artists today are becoming more and more popular and the typical radio plays and number singles are getting accounted for less and less. There are so many successful artists who can sell out a venue without having to really be on the radio.  Artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and J. Cole have proved it.  They released MORE free music than they have singles and albums.  Artists today are realizing that the power is in the people and not with the execs. I think that is important to remember, the people have the power.  That is why I think the Grammys is becoming less accountable for the real rewarding of music.  The Grammys has been ruled as a POPULARITY contests.
