Although the Grammys are supposed to recognize the greatest artists and albums from various genres, not everyone can take home a prize — just ask these 10 musicians. These artists have shockingly never won a Grammy, despite being nominated over 10 times.

The artist has the distinction of having the most Grammy nominations without a win, with 17 total nods. Over the course of his career, the artist has earned nods for some of his most classic songs, “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang,” and “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” among others, in various categories like Best Rap Solo Performance, Best Rap Performance by a Duo, and Best Rap Song.

In 2014, he also earned a nod for his record, Reincarnated, in the category of Best Reggae Album, but he ended up going home empty-handed once again. In 2016, Snoop Dogg got his 17th Grammy nomination for his work on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly, which has been nominated for Album of the Year.
