Drake Curses Out The Grammy Awards After Losing All Four Categories

Drake criticizes Grammys after losing all four awards: “This show doesn’t dictate [anything]”

Drake has slammed the Grammys after leaving empty-handed at this year’s event.

On Sunday (February 4), the Toronto superstar took to Instagram Stories to thank his fellow rappers who won, but he also said that the awards event “doesn’t dictate shit in our world.”

“Remember, all you amazing artists, that this presentation is not based on facts; it is only the opinion of a group of individuals whose identities are kept hidden. Literally. He wrote, “You can Google it.”

“Congrats to anybody winning anything for Hip Hop, but this show doesn’t dictate shit in our world.”

Drizzy also reshared his Best Rap Song victory speech from 2019, rejecting the concept of placing music in competition.

He said, “We play in an opinion-based sport, not a fact-based one. This is not the NBA… Sometimes, it’s up to a group of people who may not comprehend what a mixed-race child from Canada has to say. Travis, my Houstonian brother, is right there.

You’ve already won if folks sing your songs word for word, and you’re a local hero. If people with real jobs are going out in the rain and snow, spending their hard-earned money to purchase tickets to your events, you don’t need this right here; I guarantee you, you already won.”

Drake’s joint album with 21 SavageHer Loss was nominated for Best Rap Album, while the pair’s songs “Rich Flex” and “Spin Bout U” were nominated for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance, respectively.

Killer Mike won the first three prizes, while Lil Durk and J. Cole won Best Melodic Rap Performance for “All My Life.”

Drake has previously skipped the Grammy Awards and withdrew from nominations in 2022. He provided no definite explanation for why he dropped out or eventually decided to resubmit his work for consideration.

The OVO hitmaker also blasted the awards event for excluding The Weeknd from nominees after the massive success of his After Hours album in 2020.

“I think we should stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards and just accept that what once was the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artist that exists now and the ones that come after,” said the Grammy winner.

“It’s like having a cousin that refuses to alter their habits. I suggested the other day that @theweeknd was a lock for album or song of the year, among numerous other logical assumptions, and it simply never works out that way.”

He said: “This is a great time for somebody to start something new that we can build up over time and pass on to the generations to come.”
