Grammy nominations continuously find a way to rub people the wrong way.

The Grammys are being celebrated for being more inclusive of the hip-hop community this year after the 2017 nominations were revealed this morning, but not everyone is happy.

"Thick of It" singer Mary J. Blige was another artist who a Los Angeles Times music writer named as being snubbed along with rapper Future.

A Tribe Called Quest received zero Grammy nominations for their latest album, and Q-Tip is really pissed about it. Thank You 4 Your service not getting any Grammys acknowledgement. While Payne was a less likely contender, both Styles and Horan received generally positive reviews for the debut solo efforts, and both achieved a United Kingdom and US No.1 albums respectively. The major categories were dominated by minorities and no white male artists were nominated in the Album of the Year category for the first time in 19 years. "We were the most black-cultured group out. That's what we stood on", he began. "That's what we represented". This f**king album that we just put out, this last Tribe album, it stands with everybody's s**t that's up there. "I don't give a fuck".

And the game they were making was actually being supported by a team in Vancouver and a team in Montreal because of that sub-scale nature.

In a series of Instagram posts, Tip expressed his displeasure with the lack of recognition in no uncertain terms, especially after the group had closed out last year's ceremony.

"We closed y'all show and we don't get no fucking nominations?" the rapper/producer said referencing Tribe's performance previous year shortly after the death of Phife Dog. Y'all don't even give Bob Marley a Grammy. Fuck that! Don't say shit. "Yes, I'm hot! Get off my lawn!". We gon' honor the GOAT LL and shit and give him his fucking nomination and give him his award and shit.

Released a year ago this month, "We Got It From Here..." I'm sick of y'all f*ckin' Grammy ni**as, man!

The Tribe album marks their final album before the passing of Phife Dawg and was released in November of 2016.
