XXXTentacion Rejected From Grammy "In Memoriam” Segment
 

 
image


"Fans who tuned in to Sunday’s Grammys noticed that x*xTentacion was left out of the “In Memoriam” segment.

According to Variety, representatives for x*x requested repeatedly that the Recording Academy recognize the late rapper. However, the show opted not to include him because of his history of domestic violence.

In December, Academy president Neil Portnow was asked whether the segment would include x*x. “It’s always a daunting task to consider the talented young artists who died this year,” he told Rolling Stone. “We don’t have pre-obits prepared like in journalism but we do leave time every year for an in memoriam and we will be planning that now. I don’t have an answer for you on x*x.”

The 20-year-old Florida native, born Jahseh Onfroy, was shot and k*lled last June during an attempted robbery in Miami. Prior to his death, he was facing several charges related to a 2016 incident in which he allegedly beat his pregnant ex-girlfriend. He reportedly admitted to domestic abuse and other violent acts in a secret recording that was released following his death.

Sunday’s “In Memoriam” segment did include other artists who died in the past year including Aretha Franklin, Mac Miller, and Avicii.

XXX fans took to social media during the Grammys to voice their dismay over his omission."

Is he the only person to be accused of domestic violence out of all the nominated and actual winners(past or present) if not then he should have been up there. I'm not a fan of his music but fair is fair

It was more than accusations.
It was actual felony charges with pictures..... if her account on some of those situations don’t satisfy you.

Wouldn’t even know if they did Michael Jackson when he dead and don’t care.

It’s “their” show and everything is at their discretion. Boycott it if you really care that much about their “unfairness”

Plus those recordings that released a lil after his death of him admitting to all sorts of sh*t

Yes, sometimes these institutions have license to be biased because some artists were way louder than others. They're a brand and need to think of what they put next to their brand in a pragmatic way, some sh*t will fly under the radar and some sh*t won't. Social media woulda done a whole thing if they included him.

I don't watch the Grammy's, haven't in years, but you can't tell me that no other winner or nominee hasn't been arrested, charged or convicted of any heinous crimes.

Last time I checked he was never convicted of anything so idk what your talking about. Sure it's their show and everything is at their discretion, but you telling me no one else has been arrested and charged with any type of crimes(rhetorical)??

Makes them look stupid and biased at the end of the day. Anywho fu*k the Grammys

Basically.
I can't "boycott" some Grammy awards because I don't watch that sh*t anyway.

I wonder if they keep that same energy for white artists though?

don’t think anybody can recall someone with the level of physical violence displayed by x*x being recognized

You made a general statement on case by case individuals with the obvious racial overtone

I never fu*ked with his music but if they're gonna start excluding people cuz of sh*t like this, they're gonna have to start excluding half of America's musicians from the Grammys. Most of these mfs are crazy and have done worse sh*t than domestic violence.

You with your fair is fair.


U think it’s unfair even though you cannot name any other person that’s been included in the death shout outs that got down like x*x.

Just shut up and keep not watching
1. No one has asked me to name anybody else.

2. Fair is fair..if you don't want your organization to look biased stop making it seem like no one that has been nominated ain't been a criminal or been arrested.

3. Suck my d*ck
