Fans petition Grammys to acknowledge Mixtapes

On May 8, fans started a petition, focusing on “Ridiculously talented artists who are releasing free mixtapes and projects that are not getting the recognition they truly deserve…,” according to Change.org.

Examples such as Chance the Rapper’s well-known mixtape “Acid Rap” is an example of talent not appreciated.

The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences thinks otherwise, stating,”In order for an artist to be eligible for a Grammy nomination their music must be commercially released in general distribution in the U.S.”

The petition needs less than 8,000 people to join for their voice to be heard.
