Kanye West only got two Grammy nominations, and they were "only" in the rap category.  And you just KNEW he wasn't going to stay quiet about it.

Kanye went off during a gig in Phoenix on Tuesday night.  He said, quote, "Can I talk my [crap] again?  I'm 36 years old and I have 21 Grammys.  That's the most Grammys of any 36-year-old.

"Out of all those 21 Grammys, I've never won a Grammy against a white artist.  Now let's bring it back to the Michael Jackson days when he couldn't get his video to be played because he was 'urban'.

"So when the Grammy nominations come out and '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?

"Did they think that I wouldn't notice?  Do they think that, someway, I don't have the power to completely diminish all of their credibility at this moment?"

Then he said he'd rather get NOTHING than those two nominations . . . quote, "When you see me talking about what people are doing when I say 'marginalized', when I say 'boxed in,' when I say, 'hold back,' when I say people are afraid of the truth, that's one example right in front of you.

"And people come to me and they congratulate me on those two nominations . . . [Eff] those nominations!  It's all but only patronizing.  It's only patronizing.  Don't patronize me . . . I would have rather had NO nominations."

No Need to be thankful you're still slightly relevant in this business Kanye... sheesh
