During his dynamic performance at the 2024 Grammys on Sunday (February 4), Travis Scott took the opportunity to address what he perceived as a snub from the prestigious awards ceremony.
La Flame showcased a captivating medley of tracks from his album UTOPIA, including a fiery rendition of “FE!N” alongside Playboi Carti. In a spontaneous moment, he ad-libbed the phrase, “They slept on me 10 times,” alluding to his 10 nominations without securing a win.
The Houston native’s frustration was palpable as he concluded his set by energetically smashing folding chairs against the ground. Whether this was an act of genuine frustration or simply a theatrical element of his high-energy performance remains unclear.
Travis Scott’s exclusive nomination at the event was for Best Rap Album, where UTOPIA competed against Nas’ King’s Disease III, Metro Boomin’s Heroes & Villains, the collaborative effort Her Loss by Drake and 21 Savage, and the eventual winner Killer Mike’s Michael.
Following the announcement of the Best Rap Album winner, Scott took to X (formerly Twitter) to express his displeasure, posting a raised eyebrow emoji. This bold move by the artist adds a layer of intrigue to the aftermath of the Grammys, leaving fans and critics alike buzzing about his outspoken stance.
