From Queen Bey to jazz upstart Kamasi Washington, Grammy 2016 snubs ruined the days of musicians from all sides of the industry.
Grammy nomination snubs are nothing new. From Prince’s “Purple Rain,” to the tectonic-shifting “Is This It” by The Strokes, vastly important albums have been either ignored or pushed to lesser categories by the clueless voting committee.
