why did his label even submit it if he was boycotting The Academy?
Because it has basically become Harvey Mason Jr. playground now. Expanding nominations out of nowhere, meeting with Kanye and potentially promising him nominations, withdrawing Taylor/Jack/Annie’s and Marilyn Manson’s noms after the nominations… They are so shady and corrupt.November 24, 2021 at 8:58 pm #1204604884
And Both of the rep’s for Kanye and Taylor declined to comment LOL
I just hope neither of them goes because this is unbelievableNovember 24, 2021 at 11:54 am #1204603902
From the HDD article:
Insiders say that Harvey Mason Jr. recently went on a goodwill mission to visit with the megastar artist, producer and cultural gadfly, listening intently to his G.O.O.D./Def Jam album Donda. It was thought by these insiders that HMJ has made it a personal goal to bring fellow producer Ye back into the fold.

Do you guys think J.Cole is a dark horse in the Rap Album category? He’s the only artist that showed up in all Rap categories, everybody else missed at least one. I think he seems to have a huge supportNovember 24, 2021 at 4:46 am #1204602974
If Donda wins anything, Hip Hop is dead. Only 2 good songs (Believe What I Say and Come To Life) and others are garbage.November 23, 2021 at 6:35 pm #1204602046
Yeah the H.E.R. hate is so weird. She is über talented and she has never had a slump. She constantly puts out incredibly work. “Hard Place” is still one of my favorite songs ever I discovered thanks to the Grammys.
Of course she’s talented but she has no hype outside of awards season. No critical acclaim, no commercial success. She is overhated but the accloades she’s getting is too much. Snoh Aalegra and Jazmine Sullivan have released better albums than her but she’s winning the R&B category because we all know the Grammy’s.November 23, 2021 at 5:47 pm #1204601929
Harvey Mason is one of the worst things to happen to the Grammys.
I mean, last year we had so many incredible albums. One of the best years of music in recent years. Phoebe, Fiona, Harry, The Weeknd… And the comittee chose bunch of artists that they knew wouldn’t win so that a person that has already won 2 times wins. That was a complete set up.
I also noticed he was smirking when he was reading Kanye’s name during the livestream. Yikes.November 23, 2021 at 5:22 pm #1204601853
I really don’t understand what Mr. Mason was thinking when they expanded the nominees last minute. It only brings up more questions of legitimacy and WHY the field was expanded, and to benefit which artists. It just pushes further the narrative that the Grammys are a shady bunch.
They are though? HDD had reported that Harvey had met up with Kanye and wanted him to be included back at the Grammys in a big way… There’s no way voters willingly voted for him for a panned album
That’s why the general categories got expanded all of a sudden. It’s so obvious that Harvey specifically gathered votes for him.November 23, 2021 at 5:13 pm #1204601831
I love Billie’s album, best album out of the nominees in my opinion. Wouldn’t mind if it wins.November 23, 2021 at 10:54 am #1204600095
Happy for J.Cole, he definitely overperformed.
HitsDailyDouble had reported that Harvey had met up with Kanye and wanted him to be included back at the Grammys in a big way… and now I’m suppose to believe the whole Recording Academy voted for him to get into AOTY despite mixed reviews? And the general categories got expanded all of a sudden.? It’s so obvious that Harvey specifically gathered votes for him. And Kanye was not even nominated for MBDTF for AOTY lolNovember 23, 2021 at 10:29 am #1204599794
Wait wait wait, do you think Harvey campaigned hard for Kanye because he wanted to make it up to The Weeknd lol
Don’t think it has to do with The Weeknd, he just wants to see him there because he’s a cultural icon = ratings. He hasn’t been attending for years and said MBDTF not being nom’ed for AOTY made him depressed. He didn’t even attend that year when it won all these Rap categories.November 23, 2021 at 10:21 am #1204599666
Shady things still happened with the nominees… HitsDailyDouble had reported that Harvey had met up with Kanye and wanted him to be included back at the Grammys in a big way… and now I’m suppose to believe the whole Recording Academy voted for him to get into AOTY despite mixed reviews? All those liberal artists voted for the Trump supporter?
THIS! And the general categories got expanded all of a sudden. It’s so obvious that Harvey specifically gathered votes for him. And Kanye was not even nominated for MBDTF lol This is as shady as they setting Taylor up for AOTY by clearing her way.Not now
