Looks like Kanye is seeking to change the world, one tweet at a time. In yesterday’s (Feb. 24)  stream of consciousness tweets, Kanye addressed the lack of inclusiveness of the Grammy Awards and the Grammy’s president actually responded.

Kanye Seeks To Change The Grammys!

Kanye’s tweets can range from issues of entrepreneurship, the cost of high education, and even dissing critics of his album. This time Kanye’s rant was about how the Grammy Awards should have included the likes of Future and Young Thug to be more culturally relevant. While these acts may not be the most lyrical acts Hip-Hop has to offer, Future definitely ran the clubs last year and it could be argued Young Thug is a constant in radio play. Kanye asked for a sit down with the president of the Grammys, Neil Portnow, to discuss some of his concerns, and it looks like he might get his wish.

Portnow tweeted Kanye back via the Grammy twitter saying, “.@kanyewest, I’m not on Twitter but just hit me up and let’s have that sit down. – Neil Portnow.” He would also later release a statement saying:

“Kanye West is a creative pioneer who has been recognized and honored by The Recording Academy time and again. “We value his input as a member of the creative community, and our doors are always open to him. I continue to welcome Kanye, personally, to engage in a direct and productive dialogue about the future of music and the important role that music creators play in shaping that future.”

In my Kanye voice, “All positive vibes.”
