Unable to contain his frustration, Travis Scott went on a rampage and destroyed some chairs at the 2024 Grammy Awards.
According to TMZ, Travis Scott was nominated for Best Rap Album. However, he lost to Killer Mike. Scott quickly addressed his anger about the loss during his on-stage performance of FE!N, My Eyes, and I Know?
While singing the song, Travis Scott was seen throwing around foldable chairs that were near the stage. He also hit some stage props that were surrounding him.
Along with showing some rage, Scott switched up some of the lyrics to the song and sang, “They slept on me 10 times!” This references his 10 Grammy nominations but not winning any of them.
During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Scott shared his excitement for receiving the Best Rap Album nomination at this year’s Grammys.
“This time we just gotta bring it home!” he stated. “It means a lot to me. I love music and I love the Academy. I think some of the most amazing artists and talented artists have achieved that. And as a producer and as a writer and as a musician, I take music very seriously. So I love it. It’s amazing.”
Scott also praised his UTOPIA album before his performance. “If you could have a feeling of utopia for one second, or one moment, or one minute, one hour, things can be calm even though everything else around you is moving at 1,000 miles per minute,” he explained. “And the album is just my trip trying to find that.”
