Last night, Drake took home the award for Best Rap Song at the 2019 Grammy Awards for his track "God's Plan," beating out fellow nominees Jay Rock (“King’s Dead” and “WIN”), Eminem’s “Lucky You,” in addition to his "SICKO MODE" collab with Travis Scott.

The Toronto rapper ended up delivering one of the most notable speeches of the night, addressing aspiring artists and downplaying the importance of awards like the Grammys. Soon after he threw low-key shade at the awards, his mic was cut off and there was a commercial break.

Drake began his speech by saying, “I want to take this opportunity while I’m up here to just talk to all the kids that are watching this that are aspiring to do music, all my peers that made music from their heart, that do things pure and tell the truth… We play in an opinion-based sport, not a factual-based sport.”

He went on to share his thoughts on the importance of devoted fans, “you’ve already won if you have people who are 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 and snow, spending money to buy tickets to your shows, you don’t need this right here, you’ve already won.” Shortly after, he was cut off. Check out the clip below.

Drake, along with Childish Gambino and Kendrick Lamar, declined to perform at this year's awards.
