Denzel Curry Wins 2023 Grammys Rap Nominations

Denzel Curry has called the Grammy Awards his nominations in the 2023 rap categories.

The Florida rapper took to Twitter on Tuesday (November 15) to share his unfiltered reaction to the nominations immediately after they were announced. Denzel felt his own album, Melt My Eyez See your futureamong many others, deserved to be nominated for Best Rap Album, but saluted Kendrick Lamar and Pusha T for their inclusion.

“Glo Rilla deserves it,” he began. “But for The Rap Album Category I can literally name 10 other albums that were actually good congrats to kdot and push but all the other crap came now… This money crap at the end of the day so if that’s what it comes down to I gotta get my bread up. In the words of the late great Kimbo Slice Man I gotta get a bread.”

He continued, “My album literally hung with one of those albums that was nominated for a Grammy and I still got robbed. All my homies that came out with Top Notch solid albums this year Got Robbed. They don’t care the culture. They only care about building the big companies.”

Denzel Curry went on to name albums from Joey Bada$$, Freddie Gibbs, Earl sweatshirt, JID, Smino, redveil and others who argued that the quality of their respective work deserved to be recognized.


“N-ggas worked they ass and y’all give an award to half ass shit. Smino should be nominated. JID should be nominated. Joey Bada$$ should be nominated. Redveil should be nominated. Freddie Gibbs should be nominated. Kenny Mason should be nominated. But Is n-ggas not mainstream enough?”

He added, “Saba should be nominated. Kenny beats should be nominated. Earl Sweatshirt should be nominated. Those are my thoughts. And Key Glock should be nominated too. The Scamy nominations.”
