“Grammys we need a hip hop show for real… Ans real mcs(sic),” he wrote, captioning a picture of the ‘Thrift Shop’ hitmaker Macklemore and other rappers behind him.

Snoop noted Macklemore, who last year won four Grammys, has more golden gramophone trophies than big names in rap like Tupac Shakur, Notorious B I G, DMX, Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, Run DMC, Kendrick Lamar, Public Enemy and Snoop himself combined.

Dogg has never won a Grammy although he has been nominated 16 times.

The ‘Gin & Juice’ hitmaker is not the only rapper who has expressed disappointment over the Grammys in the past few days.

The R&B star also had some words for them after his ‘Trigga’ and the hit singles off the album didn’t get nominated in any category.
