An interesting night of humbleness for the Grammy’s. Rapper Drake took home the award for best rap song of the year.
There was some amazing honesty, as Drake told fans at home, and those in the crowd you don’t need this award, you’ve already won in life if you’re here.
“I want you to know, we play in an opinion based sport, not a factual-based sport. This is not the NBA where at the end of the year, you’re holding a trophy because you made the right decisions or won the games.”
“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, my brother Travis,” he continued. “You’ve already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you’re a hero in your hometown.”
“If there’s people who have regular jobs, who are coming out in the rain and the snow, spending their hard-earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don’t need this right here. I promise you. You already won,” Drake added of the award, getting out a final “But” before they cut his microphone for dropping truth bombs.
Drake spoke from the heart, and while I’m not a huge fan of his music, this was as real as you’ll see all night at the Grammy’s, another fake liberal love fest where they congratulate and pat each other on the back while the “little people” watch on TV.
I’d like to commend Drake for speaking from the heart, and saying what many of us in middle America were truly thinking about the Grammy’s.
