Oh That’s Why Macklemore Wasn’t Nominated For Album Of The Year

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis released a very bad album last year called This Unruly Mess I Made that both failed to capitalize on their debut’s commercial success and was partially about the “lessons” they learned from their 2014 Grammys controversy over winning almost all of the Rap Album categories and then texting Kendrick Lamar about it.

Now, the Associated Press reports that the duo did not submit their most recent album for contention at the 2017 Grammy Awards, which would explain why they weren’t nominated for anything. Maybe they are learning something! Another explanation: They’re bad! Not that the Grammys are any barometer of taste…

Frank Ocean also did not submit his albums for contention this year.

The Grammys air on Sunday. It will probably suck.
