Was Drake’s Grammy Speech Cut Short Intentionally? By: Alexis Hollins

After a surprise appearance, Drake must have become too lengthy for the Grammy’s this year, as his microphone was cut off in the middle of his speech. Many sources have been wondering if this was a glitch in the technical system or an intentional cut off by Grammy producers.

After winning Best Rap song for single “God’s Plan”, the rap artist appeared on stage to give his acceptance speech. The rapper left the audience with some powerful words, he referred to this as; “the first time in Grammy history where I actually am who I thought I was for a second, so I like that.” He asked “the kids watching, those aspiring to do music, and all my peers that make music from their heart, that do things pure and tell the truth” to “know we play in an opinion-based sport, not a factual-based sport. It is not the NBA… This is a business where sometimes it is up to a bunch of people that might not understand what a mixed-race kid from Canada has to say… or a brother from Houston right there, my brother Travis. You’ve already won if you have people who are singing your songs word for word if you are a hero in your hometown. If there are people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain, in 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.”

As the artist took a slight pause, producers cut to commercial. Many were wondering if Drake had anything else to say, but when questioned by Grammy producers, he stated that he’d been “satisfied with what he said and didn’t have anything to add”. Sources later state that producers had thought that Drake was finished commenting and did not mean to cut him off. A simple misunderstanding that now has media sources in a frenzy. #NoMoreCuttingOffDrizzy
