Rapper Drake’s Speech Cut Short After Undermining The Grammys

At the recently concluded 61st Grammy Awards, rapper Drake won the award of ‘Best Rap Song’ but to the shock of revellers, he surprised  them when he made a point saying that big musical awards ceremonies such as the Grammys are essentially meaningless

“We play in an opinion-based sport, not a factual-based sport,” Drake claimed and continued 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. 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.”

When he tried to continue, Drake’s microphone was cut off in the arena and on the telecast.He later wrote in an Instagram caption saying “Too raw for TV.”

However according to a Grammys representative, producers did not intentionally cut off Drake. They said in a statement that 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 spoke with Drake following his speech and did offer him to come back on stage to finish whatever his thoughts were although he said that he was happy with what he said and didn’t have anything to add
