Drake Slams The Grammys: ‘This Show Doesn’t Dictate S—‘

February 05, 2024

Drake, who has an antagonistic history with the Grammys, took to Instagram right before Sunday evening’s ceremony to make it clear he was not interested in keeping up with the winners. “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,” he wrote on his Instagram Stories. Congrats to anybody winning anything for hip hop, but this show doesn’t dictate shit in our world.”Drake wrote the message over a clip of him giving an acceptance speech at the 2019 ceremony, during which he called into question the very need for a Grammys ceremony at all. “We play in an opinion-based sport, not a factual-based sport,” he said at the time. You’ve already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you are a hero in your hometown.
