Drake who was also present on the night won an award for "Besf Rap song". After winning a Grammy, Drake delivered a passionate speech, telling artists that they've “already won if you have people singing your songs word for word, if you’re a hero in your hometown".
He went on to say, "you don’t need this right here. You already won.” All of a sudden his microphone was then cut off in the arena and telecast.
