On a series of notes posted to his Instagram story, Drake called on fans and artists alike to “stop allowing ourselves to be shocked every year by the disconnect between impactful music and these awards … “

Drake says the #GRAMMYs are losing their relevance in new Instagram story:

“This is a great time for somebody to start something new that we can build up over time and pass on to the generations to come.”

” … and just accept that what was once the highest form of recognition may no longer matter to the artists that exist now and the ones that come after,” he continued.

“It’s like a relative you keep expecting to fix up but they just can’t change their ways,” he said before claiming that he previously believed that The Weeknd was “a lock” for either Album or Song of the Year: “It just never goes that way.”

Drake clearly wasn’t the only musician who embraced his sentiment: Nicki Minaj reposted his statement to her IG story, too.

And if you were paying attention online yesterday, Nicki weighed in on Twitter regarding her own Grammy grievances as well. Who will be next?

Never forget the Grammys didn’t give me my best new artist award when I had 7 songs simultaneously charting on billboard & bigger first week than any female rapper in the last decade- went on to inspire a generation. They gave it to the white man Bon Iver. #PinkFriday
