Drake, Childish Gambino and Kendrick Lamar Shot Down Grammy Performance Offers

Drake, Childish Gambino and Kendrick Lamar Shot Down Grammy Performance Offers According to producer Ken Ehrlich, the artists were all offered individual performance slots, but declined the invitations and may not even be attending the Grammys.

Their absences will be a hard blow to the award show as the three artists hold 20 nominations collectively, in major categories such as album of the year, record of the year and song of the year.

Ehrlich believes the artistsโ€™ refusal to participate is indicative of an ongoing problem with the lack of diversity present at the awards show.

Ken Ehrlich, via 'New York Times' The problem runs much deeper, with multiple artists citing a white-washed system that fails to represent black artists.

In 2017, Drake joined Frank Ocean and Kanye West in boycotting the Grammys, with Ocean opting to not even submit his albums for award consideration.
