JAY-Z put his Dr. Dre Global Impact Award to use on Sunday night.

JAY-Z is catching attention on social media for taking a sip of D'Ussé out of his Dr. Dre Global Impact Award at the 2024 Grammys on Sunday night. During his acceptance speech, he made a joke about his daughter using Grammy Awards as sippy cups when she was younger. Afterward, the cameras caught him using the award to drink from.

"Thank you very much. I used to say it was a sippy cup for Blue, but Blue's grown up now she doesn't take sippy cups," he said on stage. "And she has her own Grammys." Blue Ivy joined him for the acceptance speech.

JAY-Z also criticized the Recording Academy with his speech by noting that Beyonce has never won Album of the Year despite being the winningest artist in Grammy history. “I don’t want to embarrass this young lady, but she has more Grammys than everyone and never won Album of the Year,” he said. “So even by your own metrics, that doesn’t work. Think about that. The most Grammys; never won Album of the Year. That doesn’t work. Obviously, it's subjective because it's music. It's opinion-based. Some of you are going to go home tonight and feel like you've been robbed. Some of you may get robbed-- some of you don't belong in the category. When I get nervous, I tell the truth. But outside of that, we gotta keep showing up. Forget the Grammys for a second, just in life. Just in life, you gotta keep showing up. You gotta just keep showing up until they give you those accolades you feel you deserve until they call you chairman, until they call you a genius, until they call you the greatest of all time. You feel me? Thank you."
