J Cole Reminds Dreamville Fest Attendees Who Earned Him His First and Only Grammy
J Cole was absent at the “64th Annual Grammy Awards“. The Grammys took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday night (April 3).
The Best Rap Album for The Off-Season, Best Melodic Rap Performance for “P R I D E.I S.T H E.D E V I L” starring Lil Baby, and Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “M Y.L I F E” with Morray was among the four categories in which the Dreamville Records founder was nominated.
J Cole On 21 Savage
While Cole didn’t win any golden gramophones this year, he did make a splash in Raleigh, North Carolina at the Dreamville Festival. Cole performed 21 Savage’s Grammy-winning track “a lot” during his headlining set. Cole, sang on 21 Savage track, informed the audience that the United Kingdom native is responsible for his first (and only) Grammy Award.
“Y’all make some noise for 21 Savage,” he said. “He got a n-gga his first — the only Grammy I ever won was because of this n-gga 21 Savage”.
Kanye West was also nominated for many categories, but did not attend the Grammys. The Recording Academy eliminated Kanye’s performance after his engagement in “disturbing internet activity”. Instead, Ye spent the day with his “lover,” Chaney Jones, celebrating his cousin’s grandmother’s 85th birthday.
