Grammys 2019: Drake cut off during acceptance speech

Drake is releasing two new tracks today (Friday 14 June) to celebrate his team the Toronto Raptors winning their first NBA title.

“Omertá” and “Money in the Grave” (ft. Rick Ross). “THE CHIP TO THE 6!!!!,” he wrote in the post’s caption. SEE YOU 2MRW WITH A 2 PACK LETS GOOOOOO.”

He discussed the Raptors win with reporters post-game, where he claimed that the team and fans “willed this into existence”.

“We manifested this, I told you the first time,” he said. “People like to make memes – make another meme out of this. It’s beautiful.”

Drake has been a contentious subject in the build-up to the NBA Finals, with San Francisco radio station KBLX refusing to play his music.

“Our listeners are in absolute support of the station’s decision to ban all Drake music until the NBA finals are had by Stephen Curry and the Warriors,” KBLX program director Elroy Smith told Variety.

“Drake started it by disrespecting the Warriors. His taunting toward the Warriors must stop.”
