Drake calls out Grammy's during acceptance speech

Drake got cut off during his acceptance for Best Rap Song after he used the time on stage to denounce the idea of the Grammy's.


LOS ANGELES - Drake ruffled a few feathers during his acceptance speech at The Grammy Awards on Sunday.

The rapper won an award for Best Rap Song for God's Plan and he offered a few words of encouragement to fellow artists.

"I want to take this opportunity while I'm up here to just talk to all the kids that are watching this, aspiring to do music," Drake said.

"All my peers that make music from their heart that do things pure and tell the truth, I wanna let you know we're playing in an opinion-based sport not a factual-based sport. So it's not the NBA where at the end of the year you're holding a trophy because you made the right decisions or won the games."

Drake also addressed the race issue during his speech which got cut before he could finish.

"This is a business where sometimes it's up to a bunch of people who might not understand what a mixed-race kid from Canada has to say or a fly Spanish girl from New York or anybody else, or a brother from Houston right there, my brother Travis [Scott]."

But my point is you've already won if you have people singing your songs word for word, if you're a hero in your hometown", he added.
