Apparently, [artist id="2000082"]Rick Ross[/artist] has taken exception to being overlooked in the nominations for the 2010 Grammy Awards . The Bawse did not receive any nods for his acclaimed latest LP, Deeper Than Rap, which has received critical acclaim and debuted at #1 on the Billboard albums chart.
Ross responded on Thursday (December 10) via an unofficial remix of Beyoncé’s “Video Phone.” Over the track, he begins: “My paint wet, I ride slow/ The girls sweat, while my AC cold/ Stand-up guy, but my top fold.”
A few bars later, he gets into his Grammy omission.
“What I think bout the Grammys? I think they all haters,” he declares. “What they all think bout the album?/ They think it’s amazing/ What I think about the album?/ I think I’m the greatest.”
This year, the Grammy committee nominated Common’s Universal Mind Control, Eminem’s Relapse, Flo Rida’s R.O.O.T.S., Mos Def’s The Ecstatic and Q-Tip’s The Renaissance for Best Rap Album. Nominees for other rap categories include Drake, Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, Beastie Boys, Nas, Fabolous, Kanye West, T.I. and the Lonely Island.
Since the release of the LP, Ross has been keeping busy with a slew of remixes, both unofficial as well as those sanctioned by his peers such as Diddy and the Clipse. His group Triple C’s released its Custom Cars & Cycles LP in October and he has been steady with guest appearances alongside the likes of Gucci Mane , Red Café and his good friend DJ Khaled.
Meanwhile, Ross also has been working on his next LP, Teflon Don. That project is due in 2010.
