“i don’t never wanna be propped up by tearing somebody else down. Seeing Cardi b win a Grammy make me feel like I won. Same with jay rock and Anderson,” he wrote. “I feel for Travis cuz he really deserved that acknowledgment as well, but his moment is way bigger than the awards could say.”
Cole, who’s album K.O.D didn’t receive any nominations, explained how the Grammys took a toll on him during the first half of his career because he felt he needed their validation. He then shared an inspirational that he said sums up how he feels about the award show.
“My heart is at ease knowing that what was meant for me will never miss me, and that what misses me was never meant for me.”
Cole continued to share his thoughts on other artists such as Young Thug, Ella Mai, 6lack and more.
“Seeing Thug get a Grammy incredible. Future too. been deserved. March madness was bigger than the Grammy’s. And congrats Ella mai,” he wrote. “6lack really deserved too, but don’t sweat it my brother. No award show could ever get it all the way right. Especially one that ain’t run by us.”
Cole was nominated for two Grammys last night. Miguel‘s “Come Through And Chill” was nominated for best R&B song while “Pretty Little Fears” by 6lack was nominated for best Rap/Sung performance.
