Rapper XXXtentacion who was shot dead in June 2108, was rejected from the Grammy’s In Memoriam segment Sunday night. According to a source, representatives for the late rapper requested a number of times that the Recording Academy recognize the artist, whose record “Sad!” was one of the most streamed songs of 2018. We are now finding out the Grammys’ reason for excluding X from their segment paying respects to fallen members of the music family. The rapper’s history of domestic violence cause the show to not include him alongside such acts as AviciI and Mac Miller.
