POP SMOKE’S MANAGER STEVEN VICTOR DISMISSES HIS LONE GRAMMY NOM: ‘WHO IS D SMOKE?’

Pop Smoke’s Manager Steven Victor Dismisses His Lone Grammy Nom: ‘Who Is D Smoke?’

When Grammy nominations were rolled out earlier this week, the late Pop Smoke earned his first with the infectious “Dior” being picked as part of the Best Rap Song category. For Pop’s manager Steven Victor, the nom is a bittersweet moment, as he believes the Recording Academy made a huge mistake when snubbing Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon

“I think the Grammys is cap, bro,” Victor explained in a feature with GQ. “No disrespect, but who is D Smoke? This is an artist—I’m not saying he started a genre, because he didn’t start drill music— but [Pop] bought drill music to the forefront and made it mainstream. He had a huge impact. Forget about whether he passed away, his impact was felt way before that.”

THE 12 GREATEST POSTHUMOUS RAP ALBUMS

Victor details how Pop has the second highest-selling album behind Lil Baby’s My Turn and the story of Hip Hop in 2020 can’t be told without Pop, whose debut has remained in the Billboard 200 top 5 for 20 weeks now. The Victor Victor boss believes Pop should’ve received noms in Best New Artist and Album of the Year categories as well.

 

“This is his only chance to get nominated for these awards,” he said. “So to me, the Grammys is cap. “I don’t know who’s making these decisions. He should’ve been nominated for “Dior” in more than one category, he should’ve been nominated for Best New Artist, he should’ve been nominated for Album of the Year, and he should’ve been nominated for Rap Album of the Year.”

Victor continued to declare, “He should’ve swept the whole thing. It doesn’t make any sense. That kid was incredibly talented, he gave his life to his music, and you can’t at least nominate him?”

Regardless of his feelings about the Grammys, Victor wanted those nominations for Pop’s mother and Pop himself, who often spoke about winning a Grammy Award being one of his goals.

“Especially for his mother,” he said. “Because it’s an acknowledgment. It’s history, right? Regardless of what I want to say about the Grammys, calling them cap and all this other stuff, the fact remains that it’s historical. [Pop] wanted to win a Grammy, because he knew what it meant for his career and his legacy.”

He went on to accuse the Recording Academy of “trolling” with their “far-left”  selections of Freddie Gibbs, Nas, Jay Electronica, D Smoke and Royce Da 5’9 in the Best Rap Album category. Journalist Gary Suarez floated the theory of the Recording Academy mistakenly voting for D Smoke instead of Pop.

 

“They didn’t include any albums that had commercial success,” Victor stated. “I’m not saying that’s the criteria for the Grammys. Lil Baby and Pop Smoke, those were culturally impactful records. You look at the songs from Pop Smoke, they were super relevant with what was going on in our community earlier this year.”

In the stacked Best Rap Song category, 2019’s “Dior” will compete against Big Sean and Nipsey Hussle’s “Deep Reverance,” Jack Harlow’s “WHATS POPPIN,” Lil Baby’s “The Bigger Picture,” DaBaby’s “Bop” and Megan Thee Stallion and Beyonce’s “Savage.”

50 CENT CALLS THE GRAMMYS ‘OUT OF TOUCH’ FOR BEST RAP ALBUM PICKS: ‘GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE’

Pop Smoke was killed during a February 19 home invasion in Los Angeles. His Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon debut album dropped in July and four singles are still holding chart position on the Billboard Hot 100.

YOUNG THUG GETS CRUCIFIED ON TWITTER FOR ANDRÉ 3000 DISRESPECT

Young Thug Gets Crucified On Twitter For André 3000 Disrespect

People are not pleased with Young Thug’s comments on Andre 3000.

Both Thug and the legendary 3 Stacks became trending topics on Thursday (November 26), following a viral clip of Thug talking about him on T.I.’s expediTIously podcast. After explaining he never listened to Dre growing up and had no desire to work with him because he feels the Outkast rapper doesn’t embrace the younger generation, social media had some things to say.

“Young Thug says he hasn’t worked with Andre 3000 because he feels Dre looks down on the new generation. I feel like Thug made that up in his head,” journalist Justin Hunte tweeted.

 

People were also quick to point out that Dre has sung Thug’s praises multiple times, from interviews to stages.

“Back in 2016 at Phife Dawg’s funeral, Andre 3000 personally shouted out Young Thug when talking about the new generation of rappers changing the tide of music. Let this show that EGO is the death of men,” another tweet read.

 

During his conversation with Tip, Thug compared his time with 3 Stacks to his time with Elton John, and noted why the latter was a more ideal experience for him.

“The difference between Elton John and Andre is, Elton John like to kiss ass, [where] Andre likes his ass kissed,” Thug said. “He’s just more of a fan type of nigga, to the point I’m like, ‘Nigga, let’s do music!’ He’s like, ‘N-gga, bet.’ Andre more like, ‘This is his secretary.’”

Check out more responses to Thug’s comments below.

She followed up with more animosity writing, “Black men gotta start doing better when it comes to being a father. My grandfather lame, my father lame, & dis nigga lame. lol and I guess the cycle will just continue. I guess niggas still dealing with the shackles of mental slavery or some shit, back when white men ripped you from your families and beat you to death if you tried to protect them. It goes deep. Shits really sad.”

Walker beamed at the fact she was able to afford to take care of her unborn child but then weighed in more on London and his interactions with the mothers of his other children.

“everyone ghetto. It was all so ghetto. I tried to get him to spend time with his other kids as much as I could. He ain’t want to cause he selfish. I tried to get his baby mamas to let him see the kids, they didn’t want to cause they was bitter & hated me for no reason. I tried to get everybody to just get the fuck along like one big happy family and instead everyone just shit on me. & now I just have the shit end of the stick cause all these mf’s is G H E T T O.”
