Drake Calls Out Grammy Awards Organizers Following Latest Snubs

On Sunday night, Drake took to his Instagram Story to express his disappointment with the organizers of this year’s Annual Grammy Awards at the Arena in Los Angeles following the latest announcement of winners at the revered awards show. The rapper shared a video of himself speaking on stage at the 2019 Grammy Awards, where he received a Grammy for Best Rap Song for “God’s Plan.” However, this year, Drake lost in all four categories in which he was nominated, including Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance, and Best Melodic Rap Performance. Drake’s post has since been widely shared and has sparked a conversation about the fairness and transparency of the Grammy Awards.

This is not Drake’s first issue with the Recording Academy. He has criticized the organization for classifying “Hotline Bling” as a rap song and for snubbing The Weeknd’s “After Hours,” among other grievances. In his Instagram post, Drake expressed his frustration with the situation. He captioned the video clip with the following message:

“All you incredible artists, remember, this show isn’t the facts; it’s just the opinion of a group of people whose names are kept a secret (literally, you can google it),” “Congratulations to anybody winning anything for hip hop but this show doesn’t dictate sh*t in our world.”
