Kanye West disses Radiohead

He reckons Thom Yorke snubbed him at the Grammy Awards

Kanye West has criticised Radiohead for supposedly snubbing him backstage at the Grammy Awards.

During the making of a new documentary, the rapper, singer and producer told filmmakers that he considers the Oxford band one of the groups who rival him creatively.

However, according to Reuters, he was hurt when the band ‘snubbed’ him backstage.


West explained: “So when he performed at the Grammys, I sat the fuck down.”

His comments have reportedly been cut from the edition of VH1‘s ‘Storytellers’.

The Grammy Awards, which took place on February 8 2009, saw Radiohead perform ‘In Rainbows’’15 Step’ with the University of Southern California Trojan Marching Band.

West teamed up with Estelle to perform her Number One single ‘American Boy’.
