The Grammy nominations came down yesterday and amid the hype over the nominees, many deserving artists were left out in the cold.
Because we live in a world connected through social networks, these days artists can immediately share their displeasure with preceived snubs and how the media treats them. Today, Jill Scott took a minute to get all up in her feelings about being dissed by the nominating committee.
I get it, for artists who put their heart and soul into their work, they want to be recognized for their efforts…but do they “deserve” it?
Some read Illy Jilly’s tweets as yet another artist who is full of themselves, while others, like Common, offered her words of encouragement.
At the end of the day, however, despite a dope album, the powers that be failed to recognize her efforts, but that doesn’t diminish it’s impact. She’s a winner to me.
