Travis Scott remarked, "They slept on me 10 times!" during his Grammy performance following his latest loss for Best Rap Album.

Travis Scott brought out Playboi Carti at the 2024 Grammy Awards on Sunday night for a performance on his songs "Fein" and "My Eyes." In doing so, he brought rage-filled energy to the stage alongside flamethrowers and strobe lights. While on stage, Scott shouted, "They slept on me 10 times!"

The performance came after Scott lost the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album to Killer Mike's Michael. Other nominees in the category included Metro Boomin (HEROES & VILLAINS), Nas (King’s Disease III), and Drake & 21 Savage (Her Loss). It marked Scott's 10th losing nomination over the course of his career. He's still yet to win. Unsurprisingly, his fans were furious with the result. "Travis Scott deserved this one especially after the grammys disaster of 2018," one argued on Twitter.

Best Rap Album wasn't the only honor Killer Mike took home at the ceremony. He also won Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance with his track “Scientists & Engineers." It's the first time he's won a Grammy since 2003, when he took home Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for his work on Outkast's “The Whole World.” The night wasn't all positive for Mike. After accepting his awards, he was seen being taken out of the venue in handcuffs by police. The arrest reportedly stemmed from a misdemeanor battery charge regarding an incident that took place outside the Crypto.com arena. Check out Travis Scott's performance at the Grammys below.
