Jay-Z Wins Dr. Dre Global Impact Award At Grammy

Jay-Z was awarded the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award and used his speech as a potshot against the Grammy organizers.

He talked about the hip-hop greats that came before him – and heavily suggested change at the Grammys history of placing rap on the backburner – or at the very least, not in the televised version of the show.

(This year, there were no rap categories on screen, but two pop, one Latin, one country, and one R&B.)

“We want you all to get it right,” he said. “At least get it close to right,” before switching focus to Beyoncé.

“Most Grammys never won album of the year. How does that work?,” the music Mongol questioned.
