We play in an opinion-based sport, not a factual-based sport. This is a business where sometimes it’s up to a bunch of people that might not understand what a mixed-race kid from Canada has to say .. 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.Drake
Drake is having one of the greatest runs in the history of hip hop. The Toronto artist has admirers of his music from two different genres, but he is best known for his rap hits. Tonight at the Grammys he received yet another accolade to his long list. He won best rap song.
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 that. You already won.Drake
Drake has seemed to ruffle a few feathers with his speech that puts the validity of the award ceremony into question. Time magazine had a certain reaction that was unexpected.
It seemed that Drake had more to say, he was cut off both on the telecast and live in the theater. Drake has been nominated for dozens of Grammys in his rap career, but has only won four, including this year’s prize. The last time he attended the Grammys was back in 2013. His album Scorpion is also nominated for Album of the Year. And although he did end up dropping by this year’s ceremony, he reportedly declined to take on a performance slot.
