Kanye West Submits ‘Donda’ & Hurricane’ For Grammy Nominations
Kanye West is looking to add to his Grammy collection.
Although Kanye West, or ‘Ye‘ urinated on his Grammy last year, that didn’t stop the rapper from submitting his 10th studio album, ‘Donda‘ and its single, ‘Hurricane,’ which features The Weekend and Lil Baby, for Grammy consideration.
Universal Records sent out a press release today (Oct. 22) naming Album of the Year and Record of the Year as the categories that Kanye West is looking to secure for the prestigious award.
West’s submission is a surprise to many due to the Chi-town rapper’s controversial relationship with the music industry. In addition to urinating on the golden trophy, Ye also went on a rant about his label, comparing the industry to slavery.

On Twitter, he wrote:
“I need to see everybody’s contract at Universal and Sony. I’m not gonna watch my people be enslaved. Im putting my life on the line for my people. The music industry and the NBA are modern say slave ships. Im the new Moses.”
Kanye West continued his rant the next day with,
“We’ve gotten comfortable with not having what we deserve … they allow us to have a little money from touring get some gold chains some alcohol some girls and fake numbers that feed our egos … but we don’t own our masters”
