While accepting the award for best rap song for “Gods Plan,” Drake used his speech to address aspiring musicians, kids and his peers, who he described as making music from the heart and doing things that tell the truth. The Grammy winner started by characterizing music industry awards as “an opinion-based sport, not a factual-based sport.”
He went on to differentiate the night’s wins from success in arenas like the NBA where at the end of the year you earn a trophy because “you made the right decisions or won the games.”
Continuing, Drake emphasized that walking away with a Grammy is not indicative of an artist’s success. Instead, it’s the “people who are singing your songs word for word, if you’re a hero in your hometown.” If that’s the case, he said about the Grammys trophy, “You don’t need this right here, I promise you. You already won.”
Towards the end of his speech, the rapper took a pause and was then seemingly cut off before finishing. (A backstage source said he was offered to continue his speech after the break, but said he was done).
