Many viewers and fans strongly believe the Recording Academy did it on purpose, but a representative for the Grammys clarified that producers did not intentionally cut him off but were under the impression that he had finished his speech.

“During Drake’s speech, there was a natural pause and at that moment the producers did assume that he was done and then cut to commercial,” said Sunshine Sachs’ Michael Samonte. “However the producers did speak with Drake following his speech and did offer him to come back on stage to finish whatever his thoughts were. But Drake said he was happy with what he said and didn’t have anything to add.”

The rapper took to social media to joke about the situation. He posted a picture with the envelope that read he won the category with the caption, “Too raw for TV.”
