Kanye: I'll boycott Grammys

FOX News

Kanye West says he'll boycott the 2017 Grammy Awards if the organizers don't bend the rules and include his pal Frank Ocean's latest album for nomination. West has been vocal in his support for Ocean's long-awaited album, "Blond," released in August four long years after his breakthrough, "Channel Orange." The critically acclaimed work was released before the Sept. 30 deadline for nomination at the 2017 Grammys, but it appears it won't be nominated for any gongs. Because it wasn't submitted for consideration by Ocean's label or management. MTV reports that it's unclear whether the oversight was intentional or not, but either way, it seems Ocean's team is at fault.

The four-part miniseries, nominated for a music film Grammy, sought to chronicle the different yet deeply intertwining lives of billionaire music moguls Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre. It was a wildly fascinating look into the rise (and falls) of both men separately -- and together -- with candid interviews from the subjects. Along the way, the film became a who's who of contemporary music, with many of the players traced to Dre or Iovine.
