Apparently, Rick Ross 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. -MTV
