Illegitimate or not it still is the biggest music awards show out, just like the oscars are ******** but people still watch and revere them.
But this is what I'm saying. If you're going to go out there and tap dance for "the man", then don't complain about it later. Take a real ******* stand.
Don't play the game then decide you want to riot an hour later because Beyonce didn't win the award you thought she should have.
Seriously....think about how ridiculous that is
. Let's be real. He threw a fit. He might not have even had an issue with the Grammys before that (hence performing...twice). But he should have. Yet he was still there.

This is my other point. This is something ALL adults have to do. Censor yourself in the moment if that moment isn't appropriate. Especially if what you're going to say is misguided and misinformed.
Or how about this....THINK before you speak and act. So you don't do something foolish.....and then follow it by saying something foolish.
**** was really a bad look across the board. Especially after admitting he hadn't heard Beck's album. This is what rubs people the wrong way.
And again, the fact that people enable this kind of behavior is insane to me. And that's probably why this dude never learns.
Admitting what he did on Breakfast Club is the only reason we're still discussing it, but at this point it's really a dead issue.
On the Vic front, I believe that joint was big overseas and got some love on like MTV Jams or some **** here in the US. But didn't do much here beyond that. Before that he was on some Pharcyde type ****.
