“They are only nominating me in the rap category probably because I rapped in the past or maybe because i’m black” Drake added.
Drake thinks that his hits are pop songs but they are never acknowledge as such. ” I want to be like Michael Jackson, I want to be like the artists I admire” Drake says, who missed the Grammy awards ceremony as he was touring in Europe.
