Say What Now?!
It’s no secret that Drake isn’t a fan of the annual award show! In fact last month, he and a few other celebrities were very vocal about NOT attending!
WHY?! Because MANY believe that the ‘Grammy Award Show,’ isn’t in touch with the younger generation, growth, and culture! All of which young money rapper Drake addressed in his recent interview with DJ Semtex on OVO Sound Radio.
This was the MOST talked about interview of the weekend!
Not only did Drake make reference to his recent beef with philly rapper Meek Mill [saying they would NEVER be friends], he also said that he DOES NOT want the trophies for his 2017 Grammy wins!
“Even though ‘Hotline Bling’ is not a rap song, the only category they can manage to fit me in is a rap category. Maybe because I’ve rapped in the past or because I’m black. I can’t figure out why… I won two awards last night– but I don’t even want them, because it just feels weird for some reason.”
[The interview was recorded on at the beginning of Feb. and released this weekend!]
Drake goes on to say:
“We’ve been conditioned to think that this is the true award for our accomplishments. All I’m saying is, to kids that will be coming up in the future that might not get championed, that’s okay too. You’re dealing with a bunch of people that are just people, at the end of the day.”
We understand his stance on the matter, but to NOT want the trophies is a bit far! It’s no secret that Drake dominated in 2016! So we say, take the grammy’s and add them to the growth of your accolades! There are MANY desiring to be where he is now! #NeverForget
