Jay-Z said that the industry had come a long way since Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff boycotted the Grammys in 1989 over the rap awards not being televised while accepting the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award with his 12-year-old daughter Blue Ivy at his side.

“And then they went to a hotel and watched the Grammys,” Jay-Z said. “I am not even sure I get it. It was not a very successful boycott.

Despite DMX having two successful albums that year, the rapper and entrepreneur claimed that he too abstained from the 1998 Grammy Awards because he was not nominated.

“I’m just saying, we love y’all, we love ya’ll, we love y’all, and we want y’all to get it right,” Jay-Z said. “At least get it close to right.”

He also talked about Beyoncé, his wife, not taking home the Album of the Year trophy.

“I don’t want to embarrass this young lady, but she has more Grammys than anyone, and never won album of the year,” he said of Beyoncé. “Even by your own metric that does not work. Think about that, most Grammys, never won album of the year, that doesn’t work.”

“Some of you are going to go home tonight and feel like you’ve been robbed.” “Some of you may get robbed,” he said. “Some of you don’t belong in the category.” He continued that “When I get nervous I tell the truth.”

“Outside of that we got to keep showing up,” “And forget the Grammys for a second. Just in life.”

“Just keep showing up,” he added. “You got to keep showing up until they give you all those accolades you feel you deserve. Until they call you chairman, until they call you a genius, until they call you the greatest of all time. You feel me?”

Jay Z is renowned for speaking his mind when it comes to being honest, and he was visibly disappointed that Beyonce had received a pass for the award.
