You’d think that someone who received five whole nominations at the Grammys would be listening to the sweet, sweet sound of their fans cheering, right? But in Kanye West‘s case, sadly not.
The rapper is nominated for a bunch of awards in the rap categories, but fans are brutally mad that he was once again denied a nomination for Album of the Year.
And considering Kanye released one of his most-celebrated and globally adored albums in 2016, – ‘The Life of Pablo’ – they might kinda have a point.

Kanye is going to have most Grammys for a rapper all time after this. But TLOP still got snubbed so I’m mad

Kanye SNUBBED for Album of the year

And as much as Kanye gets on my nerves, there’s no way Views deserves an AOTY nomination over TLOP.

Grammys the same group of people that has robbed kanye of Album of the Year over and over. Y’all can have the Grammys…and Drake.

To whomever wins Album of the Year – KANYE IS NOT GONNA LET YOU FINISH. #AOTY

While Yeezy stans may feel as though their hero is the #1 Most Snubbed Person At The Grammys, Ye certainly has companions. People are also pretty irked that Rihanna was also snubbed for Album of the Year, and both David Bowie and Prince were snubbed for posthumous awards, since both music icons passed away this year.

Justin Bieber earned an Album of the Year Grammys nom over David Bowie. Man…

21 pilots are nominated for more grammys than David Bowie & people are still surprised that trump won
— proud bozo aka bongo (@KurtVomegut) December 6, 2016
if David Bowie loses to 21 pilots the grammys will officially be meaningless

Dear oh dear.
Last year Kanye threatened to not go to the Grammys unless he was promised Album of the Year… despite it not being nominated.
I’m practicing my Grammy Speech. I’m not going to the Grammys unless they promise me the Album of the Year!!!
— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 15, 2016
(He did though. He went.)
Regardless, with this lot of nominations, this makes Kanye West is now the 3rd-most nominated artist of all time, and the #1 most nominated rapper of all time.
