Looks like YG got the memo his debut album My Krazy Life isn’t receiving a Grammy nod. In fact, a lot of heavily favored hip-hop albums were snubbed from the 2015 Grammys. Instead of rewarding artistically inclined albums like Freddie Gibbs & Madlib’s Piñata or even Rick Ross’ commercially successful Hood Billionaire, the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS) saw Iggy Azalea’s The New Classic better fit for some (more) recognition. Well, Compton’s YG, being the gangsta that he is, ain’t just gonna sit around and take it on the chin, as he unleashes “2015 Flow,” which targets said award show. Peep YG’s Grammy diss track “2015 Flow” after the jump.
