Despite the fact that Drake had one of the highest amounts of Grammy nominations this year (he had eight, one less than Beyoncé's nine), the Toronto rapper didn't attend the Feb. 12 awards show. While his concert in Manchester, England, was the main reason Drake missed out on accepting his two awards, judging by the latest episode of his weekend show on Apple's Beats 1, he wouldn't have wanted to be there anyway.
In an interview with Britain's DJ Semtex -- which was recorded the day after the Grammys -- Drake expressed his frustration with the Recording Academy for only recognizing him as a rap artist when his songs were actually mega pop hits.
"I’m a black artist, I’m apparently a rapper, even though 'Hotline Bling' is not a rap song," Drake said on the show. "The only category that 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."
