Drake accepted the award for Best Rap Song at last night’s Grammy Awards ceremony and his speech is making headlines.
The “God’s Plan” rapper took an unorthodox approach to his acceptance speech — reminding artists that they don’t need a Grammy for recognition. Whether he meant to devalue or diss the Grammy Awards is unclear, but whatever his intentions — that was enough to get him cut off.
“We play in an opinion-based sport, not a factual-based sport,” Drake said during his speech.
“Look, if there’s people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain, in the snow, spending their hard earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows — you don’t need this right here, I promise you.” Drake said during his speech. “You already won.”
That was right before the Grammys abruptly cut away from Drake’s speech. The crowd cheered loudly and it seemed he was starting up another thought when his mic was suddenly cut off. Watch below.
