Lil Wayne questions why he wasn't invited to the Grammys: 'Am I not worthy?'
Lil Wayne wonders if he's "worthy" after not receiving an invitation to the Grammys.
The Grammy winner, real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., went on Twitter on Sunday to share his complaints about his disqualification from the upcoming 63rd Grammy Awards in January 2021.
"As an artist, when I see Grammys appearing and I'm neither involved nor invited, I ask myself. Is it me, my music or just another technique?" Wayne, 38, tweeted.
Carter released his thirteenth studio album, Funeral, on January 31st. It debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart but failed to garner a single Grammy nomination.
