Frank Ocean on GRAMMYs: 'Artists like me aren't represented well'

Frank Ocean has opened up about deciding not to submit his latest album Blonde for GRAMMYs consideration in a new interview with the New York Times. 

The "Novacane" hitmaker failed to submit his record Blonde and his visual album Endless on time out of protest because he doesn't feel that the awarding body represents or acknowledges people from a similar background to himself:

"That institution certainly has nostalgic importance. It just doesn't seem to be representing very well for people who come from where I come from, and hold down what I hold down."

Frank Ocean added: "I think the infrastructure of the awarding system and the nomination system and screening system is dated. I'd rather this be my Colin Kaepernick moment for the Grammys than sit there in the audience."
