Travis Scott fans can't take any more Grammy loses.

Travis Scott fans were in an uproar on social media after Killer Mike took home the awards for Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Album at the 2024 Grammy Awards on Sunday night. Overall, the ceremony marked Scott's 10th losing nomination over the course of his career. He's still yet to win.

"Travis Scott deserved this one especially after the grammys disaster of 2018," one user wrote on Twitter. Another shared a highlight reel of LeBron James with the caption: "The Grammys when it comes to always robbing Travis Scott off AOTY." One fan tweeted: "Listen I like it. But I'm telling you right now pretentious whites who 'aren't really into rap' really f*ck with Run the Jewels and Killer Mike. See it with a lot of my festival friends. I liked all the albums nominated and am happy for him. But it's not AOTY IMO."
