Drake calls out Grammys during acceptance speech CNN - Mon 11 Feb 06:47 GMT
Drake had a message for musicians and the Grammys on Sunday.
"I want to take this opportunity while I'm up here to just talk to all the kids that are watching this, aspiring to do music," Drake said.
"This is a business where sometimes it's up to a bunch of people who might not understand what a mixed race kid from Canada has to say or a fly Spanish girl from New York or anybody else, or a brother from Houston right there, my brother Travis [Scott].
But my point is you've already won if you have people 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, in the snow, spending their hard earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don't need this right here.
Longtime Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich told The New York Times last week that Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino declined to perform during the event.
