Ice Cube and his son, O’Shea Jackson Jr., were the first GRAMMY Awards presenters on Monday night (Feb. 15), when they handed Best Rap Album to Kendrick Lamar for To Pimp A Butterfly. It was a pretty touching moment! And it was basically Ice Cube’s only moment of the evening, because he immediately got the hell out of the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

In a Snapchat posted from his car on Monday night, Cube told the camera, “If any of y’all thought I was gonna stay through that whole three-hour bullshit, you’re out your batty-ass mind. I’m back in the car, bitch!”

So, we’ll never know what Ice Cube thought of James Bay and Tori Kelly’s duet, or Meghan Trainor’s Best New Artist acceptance speech. Pity!
