Drake threw shade at the Recording Academy during his GRAMMY acceptance speech and he got cut off half way through it.
Drake took to the GRAMMYs stage to accept his award for Best Rap Song for 'God's Plan' and he threw some not-so-subtle shade at The Recording Academy by saying the award was basically useless, leading to him being cut off as he spoke.
The rapper had already declined to perform at last night's ceremony but did show up to collect his award, where he made a passionate speech about how success should be measured.
He said: "Look, if there are 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."
"We play an opinion based sport, not a factual based sport...you've already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word, if you're a hero in your hometown."

Grammys: THANKS YOU'RE DONE
The camera begins to pan out and eventually cuts him off as Drake continues to speak, with audiences only able to hear him say 'but' and we really want to know what else he had to say.
Footage has emerged of him laughing about the shade he threw backstage after his speech, so we're pretty certain the digs were intended.
It's been a tough year for The Recording Academy, with Taylor Swift snubbing the show to support boyfriend Joe Alwyn at the BAFTA's and Ariana Grande saying she doesn't give the award any 'weight' despite winning Best Pop Vocal album with Sweetener.
Bro drake got up there and started saying the Grammys are pointless and they cut him off before he could finish LMAOO— We’re all going to dir (@ArshlocR) February 11, 2019
