Rick Ross Calls Grammy Committee ‘Haters’ in Diss Song
Miami rapper Rick Ross was notably omitted from the list of nominees for the 2010 Grammy Awards, and he’s none too pleased. Ross’ album ‘Deeper Than Rap’ debuted at #1 on the Billboard albums chart, despite a vicious feud with rival 50 Cent, who has qualms of his own with the awards.
The Grammy committee, however, nominated Eminem, Q-Tip, Mos Def, Flo Rida and Common for Best Rap Album, and picked Jay-Z, Nas, Fabolous, Kanye West, T.I. and even newcomers Drake, Kid Cudi and the Lonely Island over Ross in other categories.
Last week, the Trilla Bawse leaked an unofficial remix of Beyonce’s ‘Video Phone’ addressing his omission from the nominees. In it he raps, “What I think bout the Grammys? I think they all haters … What they all think bout the album?/ They think it’s amazing/ What I think about the album?/ I think I’m the greatest.” Not exactly Grammy-worthy either.
Rick Ross’ fourth album, ‘Teflon Don,’ is scheduled to be released in 2010. His group Triple C’s just dropped their ‘Custom Cars & Cycles’ record in October.
