Producer Q-Tip took to Instagram where he vented his upset at being missed out – saying: ‘I’m sick of y’all f***ing Grammy n***as man.
You got us to get out there to perform last year and s*** and y’all don’t give us no f***ing nominations? What happened?’
In the series of five videos he went onto express his anger at the awards show – criticising trustees for omitting ‘the most cultured black group out’.
‘That’s all we stood on.
That’s what we represented’ he said.
‘This f***ing album that we just put out – this last Tribe album – it stands with everybody else’s s*** that’s up there.
I don’t give a f*** – respect to everybody who is nominated but whatever – I’m speaking for mine’.
