Rapsody's Eve was released back in August.
The North Carolina rapper was snubbed for her album Eve, which was released back in August. The album wasn't nominated for any Grammy awards, unlike its predecessor Laila's Wisdom, which was nominated for Best Rap Album last year.
Rapsody took to Instagram after the nominees were announced to speak on the album being snubbed.
"Today.....disappointed. Yes. Frustrated...beyond. But, you have to tell yourself the good fight is never an easy one," she said in a lengthy response accompanying the cover art for Eve.
"...the acknowledgment for your craft indeed feels amazing!! I haven't been nominated for much but what I have I’m thankful for. There’s so much power and weight in numbers, nominations and awards....we artist know what that does for our exposure; and for the many, validation. And you want people to continue to discover and play and be inspired by the music. That’s what I get excited about anyway. But, hey....we keep on creating."
9th Wonder, PJ Morton, and others wrote supportive comments in response to Rapsody's post.
The Grammys will take place on January 26 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
