According to reports, Kanye’s team has submitted his music for rock nominee consideration.
Sources close to West tell us his team at Def Jam submitted Kanye for “Best Rock Song” and “Best Rock Performance” for his song “Freeee (Ghost Town, Pt. 2)” with Kid Cudi for a Grammy. The song is one of 7 from the duo’s “Kids See Ghosts” album. We’re told the submissions have already made it through the screening process and were sent out on the first round ballot to voters. If Kanye’s submissions snag enough support in the first round, they’ll be nominated and up for the awards. (TMZ)
Following its June 1 release, the Ye album easily sold over 200,000 copies in its opening week.
Kanye West zooms to #1 on this week’s HITS Top 50 chart with his seven-song Ye (G.O.O.D./Def Jam), scoring 210k+ all in. Republic’s Post Malone falls just short of another six-figure week with 99k, good for #2 for the platinum beerbongs and bentleys. (HITS Daily Double)
The same week, Kanye quietly updated a lyric off his “I Thought About Killing You” song.
On ‘I Thought About Killing You’, there is a new line that can be heard on the last verse of the song. After “If I wasn’t shinin’ so hard, wouldn’t be no shade,” the rapper now rhymes, “Sorry but I chose not to be no slave.” Interestingly, this change has only appeared on the clean version of the song on almost all platforms — the dirty version of the song still doesn’t feature the line.
