A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip Enraged Over Grammy Snub

(Radio.com) A Tribe Called Quest did not get nominated for a GRAMMY and Q-Tip is not pleased. The hip-hop group's final album with the late MC Phife Dawg, We Got it From Here' Thank You 4 Your Service, was released last November, making it eligible for the 2018 awards presentation.

In a series of Instagram posts, Tip expressed his displeasure with the lack of recognition in no uncertain terms, especially after the group had closed out last year's ceremony. "Y'all f—– busted y'all a– to try and get us out there and perform! You think a n—- wanted to f—– go out there and perform after I lost my man? We closed y'all show and we don't get no f—— nominations? The last Tribe album? My man is gone! We been doing this s— for f—— years!"

"Y'all think it's some sort of caveat because this is the first time that no white man was nominated in no major categories and s—? We were the most black cultured group out. That's all we stood on. That's what we represented. This f—– album we just dropped. This the last Tribe album. It stands with everyone else's s— that's up there." Read more here.

Jay-Z Says '4:44' and Beyonce's 'Lemonade' Began As Joint Album

(Radio.com) According to Jay-Z, his Grammy-nominated album, 4:44, and his wife Beyonce's smash Lemonade record started out as a joint collaboration between the two artists.

The revelation was made during a new Jay-Z interview with the New York Times, where the rapper said that their marital issues spilled over into studio sessions. "We were using our art almost like a therapy session. And we started making music together," the rapper revealed. And then the music she was making at that time was further along. So her album came out as opposed to the joint album that we were working on."

JAY-Z went on to say that the songs the pair worked on together eventually became a jumping off point for both albums. "We still have a lot of that music. And this is what it became," he explained. "There was never a point where it was like, 'I'm making this album.' I was right there the entire time." Read more here.

Singled Out: Gisto's OMW and Pure Energy

Vancouver Hip-hop/reggae artist Gisto is releasing his new album "OMW" tomorrow (December 1st) and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the title track and "Pure Energy". Here are the story:

"OMW": The song "OMW" was written in response to a breakup of a long and toxic relationship. I was disillusioned and my pride was hurt but faced with my vulnerability, I was brought closer to my true self. I realized the blessing I found by cutting out that kind of detracting negative energy. Music has always been my medicine and now I had the chance to focus the intention on myself and say "I'm on my way everything out of my way. Written and recorded while exiling myself to a remote mountain studio in the Kootenays. I surrounded myself with good friends away from the city and negativity I left behind.

Shortly after that, I was invited to perform with my homie Emotionz at the Bamboo Bass festival in Costa Rica. There I met Glovely and we shot the video for "OMW" on Jaco Beach. I met so many other great artists and creative people there and the video perfectly captures the trippy adventure we had together. Looking back if it weren't for all the challenges I would have never got to the place I am now, which is just a point on the journey "OMW".

"Pure Energy": as written and recorded while in an altered state of consciousness. I was suddenly aware that everything around me including myself was just vibrating molecular energy, and through some sort of string of awareness, we're able to create and sustain this sort of thing called "reality". It made me realize everything is connected and although "I'm a light in the tunnel, I would be nothing without the darkness and struggle". The lyrics and message of the song appeared in my mind as a whole thought. It's about being self-aware of our true nature as subjective beings with this objective awareness. enticing me to let go of the constructed Narrative of good and bad and try to see things for what they truly are knowing good and bad are symptoms of each other. Written and recorded in my studio in Vancouver B.C. on a beat that I had built a few days prior it became a favorite of all my woke fam and I knew I had to put it on my new album.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!

This Year's Biggest Grammy Nominations Snubs

(Radio.com) The annual GRAMMY nomination announcement is always a highly anticipated event, but this year's nominations left some a little puzzled.

One Direction alum Harry Styles' self-titled debut album wasn't able to generate any nominations. Pop princesses Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, and Katy Perry were also left off this year's GRAMMY nominations list.

With Kesha finally bursting back onto the music scene with her impassioned album, Rainbow, many expected her to rack up the noms, but the "Praying" singer only got two.

Ed Sheeran's Divide album also seemed destined for a slew of GRAMMY nods, but the release only received nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Album. Those two categories (Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Album) are also the only GRAMMY nods for Lady Gaga this year for her album, Joanne. Read more here.
