Fat Joe Explains Why He Should've Won a Grammy Over Chance The Rapper

Fat Joe Explains Why He Should've Won a Grammy Over Chance The Rapper

Fat Joe, who is currently in promo mode for his new book, The Book of Jose, explained to GQ why he should've won that 2017 Grammy over Chance The Rapper.

Joe says that yes, "Chance is a “cool guy,” and all but he “should have won the Grammy” for “All the Way Up” that year over Chance's "No Problem."

“‘All the Way Up’ was bigger. Not only that, if people understood the culture, Remy and I were like Robin Hood and Cinderella,” he said. “They gave it to Chance the Rapper—and for what? I’m not going to be disrespectful, but they gave it to him for a record I don’t even know no more. This is my point. I don’t even know what he beat us with. Do you understand?"

He says the same thing happened years earlier in 2005 when "Lean Back" lost to The Black Eyed Peas' "Let's Get It Started." "Same thing happened to us with ‘Lean Back.’ We lost Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group in 2005 to, what’s these guys? What’s the guy with the girl, Fergie?”
