Travis Scott and Jay-Z both took shots at the Grammy Awards while on stage at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on Sunday.


During his performance of his track with Playboi Carti "FE!N," Scott called out the Recording Academy over the fact that he's never won an award.


His album "UTOPIA" was nominated for Best Rap Album on the night, but lost out to Killer Mike's "MICHAEL."


“They slept on me 10 times,” he said, referring to his 10 career nominations but zero wins.



Jay-Z, meanwhile, was unhappy with the fact that his wife, Beyoncé, has never won Album of the Year.


The "Crazy in Love" singer, who is the most successful artist in Grammys history with 32 wins, wasn't nominated for the prize this year, but has been so four times in the past without a win.


“We want y’all to get it right,” Jay said as he collected the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award.


“Obviously it’s subjective because, you know, it’s music and it’s opinion-based," he added. "But she has more Grammys than everyone and never won Album of the Year!”


“So even by your own metrics, that doesn’t work," he said. "Think about that. The most Grammys, never won Album of the Year. That doesn’t work."



This isn't the first time Jay has hit out at the Grammys.


In 2018, the "Hard Knock Life" rapper was nominated for eight awards, including Album of the Year for "4:44," but went home empty-handed.


Later in the year on his collaboration with Beyoncé, "APESHIT," he then rapped: “Tell the Grammys fuck that 0 for 8 shit.”
