Rick Ross and Chrisette Michele were nominated for Best Hip Hop Song and scheduled to perform âAston Martin Musicâ with Chrisette Michele. But when Ross loss to Eminem in the category, he left the ceremony before hitting the stage. It seems Chrisette Michele was rubbed the wrong way about Rick Ross’ actions. Obviously upset, Chrisette turned to her tumblr account for a little old fashioned venting! Check out what she had to say: If this is the way hip hop is then I denounce it. This is not about ego. This is about what I can bring to the world. My life is for the people. I live to give. Itâs my desire to bring life and freedom light and love everywhere I go. Upward mobility in the brown skinned community. Who stands off at an award show because they donât win? An award is winning at being as âstuck in a categoryâ as possible. Congratulations to all the trophy holders who won at being the most like every one else. I could have sworn hip hop was on the come up. But apparently rapping is about venting, bashing, chauvinistic pigging, and EGO. Not cool. Donât LET me start rapping. (album in stores november 30th) They sayâ¦Iâm ecclectic. Iâm underrated. Iâm different. Well If I win an award itâs because I paved a way. Every award Iâve won was new in itâs category. You know why? Because Iâm amazing at being my damn self. Grammy – best alternative R&B song Centric award – Soul Approved Etc. Have u even heard of those categories? Nope. But guess what? You ainât never seen another me. And u never will. No ego here. Why? Because itâs none needed. My award is waking up every morning and CAKING off of what I believe in by the grace of God. LET FREEDOM REIGN – in stores NOVEMBER 30th. Go pick that up. Maybe Iâll call my 4th album âwinners : just like every body elseâ maybe not. I pray with every song I sing Im singing from the bottom of my heart. If all we want is an award for telling our truths, then we really have no true reason. This isnât a competition. This is a stage for self expression and Iâm grateful for the opportunity to live on it. Iâd sing even if nobody sang along. -from the bottom of my disappointed heart. Hip Hopâ¦ Man up. I wanted to be supportive but I canât understand you. I believed in youâ¦ But apparently youâre so high you canât even see what the world needs. Is all hip hop like that? Absolutely not! But some of it certainly is. Let me spit a few bars. Iâm not that kinda hip hop. I rep hip hop too. But not that kinda ego trippin foolery. Chrisette Michele – the girl on that Aston Martin Music recordâ¦ Spread love.
