After winning Best Rap Song for “God’s Plan,” hours ago, Drake used his winner’s speech to encourage musicians to work on their craft regardless of the recognition.
All my peers that make music from their heart, that do things pure and tell the truth, I wanna let you know we’re playing an opinion-based sport, not a factual-based sport,” he said. “So it’s 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.

Look, look, if there’s 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 [award] right here. I promise you, you already won.He added.
