Drake feels "weird" winning GRAMMYs for rap: 'I don't want them, it doesn't feel right'
Canadian hitmaker Drake has revealed that winning the Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Rap Song GRAMMY Awards this year may seem like a phenomenal achievement, but he feels "weird" about it because he doesn't consider himself a rap artist.
During the OVO Sound show on Beats 1 recently, he explained that he doesn't want the trophies because they make him feel uncomfortable in this context:
"I’m apparently a rapper, even though Hotline Bling is not a rap song. The only category they can manage to fit me in is in a rap category, maybe because I’ve rapped in the past or because I’m black. I can’t figure out why. I won two awards, but I don’t even want them because it just feels weird for some reason. It just doesn’t feel right to me."
