Drake, who is a five-time Grammy winner, recently mocked the 2024 Grammy Awards. The rapper expressed his dissatisfaction with the Grammys and took a dig at them. This is not the first time he criticised Grammy Awards 2024. Back in 2019, Drake in his acceptance speech for Best Rap Song said that the awards show do not represent the true value of music.

Drake did not attend this year's Grammy Awards. Instead, he chose to performe elsewhere. However, he took to his Instagram handle to pen a note about Grammy Awards 2024. He wrote, "All you incredible artists remember this show isn’t the facts it’s just the opinion of a group of people who’s name are kept a secret… (literally you can google it). Congrats to anybody winning anything for hip hop but this show doesn’t dictate sh*t in our world." Drake has always mentioned that artists should not measure their success with trophies.

Drake was nominated across four categories at this year's Grammys, along with 21 Savage, for their collaboration album Her Loss. It was nominated for Best Rap Album, Best Rap Performance, Best Melodic Rap Performance, and Best Rap Song, but it lost all four. Drake has boycotted the Grammys for several years, either refusing to submit his music or withdrawing his nominations.
