Drake’s Beef With the Grammy Awards
Drake, who has won five Grammys out of 51 nominations, has had beef with the Grammy Awards for a while. In 2017, he called the awards out after he won Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for “Hot Line Bling,” calling it a slight because the song was not traditional rap. That year, he declined to submit his More Life playlist for Grammy consideration.
In 2019, Drake won Best Rap Song for “God’s Plan” and was cut off during his acceptance speech while he was opining about the awards being an “opinion-based sport.” This after Drake turned down the chance to perform at the event.
In 2020, The Boy became angered after The Weeknd’s After Hours was snubbed. In the years since, Drake has refused to submit music. Last year, Drake won his first Grammy in four years despite not submitting music when he earned Best Melodic Rap Performance for his appearance on Future’s “Wait for U” with Tems.
The question remains, will Drake even show up to the event? Drizzy is on the heels of releasing his latest solo album, For All the Dogs, which dropped on Oct. 6. The 2024 Grammy Awards is set to take place on Feb. 4, 2024.
