Steve Stoute & Grammy Family Unite

Almost two weeks after Steve Stoute’s diatribe in the New York Times, Neil Portnow, President of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences and The Commissioner issued this statement regarding their new pact:

“The voices of artists and our creative community are at the heart of the missions of the Recording Academy and indeed the music industry itself. Expanding constructive and positive ways to continue to actively incorporate generational and artistic diversity in the Academy’s development and good work serves those important missions. The participation of new and culturally diverse voices has and continues to be a goal which benefits our members, the creative community, and music fans everywhere.

“To that end, we have come together in a collaborative manner to discuss how the Recording Academy can continue to evolve in an ever-changing cultural environment. We invite others who share this agenda to join us in these discussions.”

    How is the headline for this “Steve Stoute and Grammy Family Unite”?

    you act like Steve stoute prompted this move and that the reason for this statement is because of him. it doesn’t even mention his name. like the Grammy committee gives a shit about Steve Stoute and his opinions

    @G — you didn’t read the article. It’s a joint statement from Stoute AND NARAS. So clearly the Grammy committee DOES give a shit about his opinions.

    Yeah go ahead Stoute put out a statement saying you apologize. Yo’ rap is becoming worse than a soap opera. And they wonder why sales are DOWN because its a bunch of men throwing tantrums……….smh are there any adults anymore.

    ^Not saying Stoute is a rapper because I know some intellectually challenged individual is going to think so.

  • sirdouglas

    this is just the politically correct way to brush Steve Stoute off..tThey still dont consider hip hop a true art form… a few years back hip hop was the golden child because of the money, but thats not the case anymore so they no longer care about hip hop. Point Blank! fuck the mnmys they dont determine whats hot or whats good!
