Yeezus only scored two nominations this year, and none in the major categories (it’s up for Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song, for “New Slave”), so you would be forgiven for expecting some thoughts from Kanye. Here they are, finally: “Yeezus is the top one or two album on every single list, but only gets two nominations from the Grammys. What are they trying to say?” That is an excellent question.
