Ever since the Grammy nominations have been released, the Recording Academy has been hit with heavy criticism. Many celebrities including The Weeknd and Nicki Minaj have all voiced their concerns and opinions over it, and now 50 Cent also has something to say.

In a now-deleted Instagram post, the rapper shared a picture of all of the rappers nominated in the “Best Rap Album” category which he wrote in the caption, “They out of touch, this sh*t ain’t it.”

50 Cent, who produced Pop Smoke’s album Aim for the Moon, Shoot for the Stars, has predicted early on that Pop’s album would not be nominated for a Grammy assuming it would be because of the content of the album and his music.

However, “Dior” has been nominated for “Best Rap Performance.” What are your thoughts on the Grammy nominations?
