Even though Blonde didn’t make the awards deadline.

Kanye West is taking his support of Frank Ocean to the next level, saying that he will boycott the Grammys if the queer artist's album Blonde isn't nominated.

The rapper told the crowd at a show in Oakland, California, that "if [Ocean's] album is not nominated in no categories, I'm not showing up to the Grammys."

Ocean's Blonde, which came out this year, has been praised by critics. However, neither the album nor the accompanying visual album Endless were submitted for Grammys consideration by the deadline of Sept. 30.
