During this year’s Grammys, it naturally featured the annual tribute to all the artists that have passed away within the last year—however, when Drakeo The Ruler was not included, his family definitely did not appreciate it. Speaking about it to TMZ, Drakeo The Ruler’s brother made it clear that he was not happy that he was not included in the Grammys “In Memoriam” segment during the show.
Drakeo The Ruler’s brother, Ralfy The Plug, said “It comes off as a spit in the face disregarding the facts that we’ve created an entire movement that generated the momentum for underground emerging L.A. artists to have a platform.”
Ralfy continued, adding “Leaving Drakeo out of their tribute and by not giving him any acknowledgment of his existence sums up exactly what we feel the industry has been trying to do. Erase us.”

He wasn’t done and slammed also slammed local law enforcement. “Let alone the reality that we lost my brother, Drakeo The Ruler, the poster child for systematic prejudices against rappers by law enforcement using lyrics against our culture and violating what they call our constitutional rights of freedom of speech- The First Amendment.”
Drakeo wasn’t the only artist that was missing from the Grammys tribute, as fans of other genres pointed out on social media during the show.
