Lil Wayne has hardly been MIA from the music scene in 2020, dropping his 13th studio album Funeral in January. The album, which hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart on Feb. 14, was noticeably absent on the 2021 Grammy nominations list.
While the album received a nod for best recording package, it did not receive a single nomination in the general or rap categories.
The rapper took to Twitter on Sunday (Dec. 20) to share his thoughts on the snub, writing, "As an artist, when I see da Grammys coming up & I’m not involved nor invited; I wonder. Is it me, my musik, or just another technicality?" he pondered. "I look around w respect & wonder competitively am I not worthy?! Then I look around & see 5 Grammys looking bak at me & I go to the studio."
