Popular rapper, Drake on Sunday night decided to use the opportunity to receive an award for the Best Rap Song to express his feelings about the Grammy Awards.
The rapper has always been plain on how he feels about the award. In fact, he has been absent from several Grammy ceremonies.
‘The Fire in the Booth‘ rapper who was billed to perform at the show, showed up but only to be presented with the award he had so much criticized.
Drake did not fail to make everyone present at the ceremony to see that every artiste is a winner whether they receive an award or not.
He said: “We play in an opinion-based sport, not a factual-based sport. The point is, you’ve already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you’re a hero in your hometown. Look, if there’s people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain and snow, spending money to buy tickets to your shows, you don’t need this right here. You already won.”
Surprisingly, the mic got cut off at this point, leaving Drake’s speech incomplete.
However, recent reports are that according to a Grammys representative, the mic was not intentionally cut off.
“During Drake’s speech, there was a natural pause and at that moment the producers did assume that he was done and then cut to commercial. However the producers did speak with Drake following his speech and did offer him to come back on stage to finish whatever his thoughts were. But Drake said he was happy with what he said and didn’t have anything to add,” the producers said in a statement, as reported by Consequence of Sound.
