Drake called out the Grammys on his Instagram Story, on Sunday night, as the latest ceremony took place at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. In doing so, he shared a clip of himself speaking on stage at the Grammy Awards in 2019. The message comes after he lost in all four categories in which he was competing including Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance, and Best Melodic Rap Performance.

"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)," he captioned his post. "Congrats to anybody winning anything for hip hop but this show doesn't dictate sh*t in our world."
