Jay Z made three historic moments last night: The first time he took his daughter Blue Ivy on stage to receive an award, received the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award and called out the Recording Academy for never having given his wife, Beyoncé, the ultimate award despite her numerous Grammy Awards.
“Obviously, it’s subjective because you know it’s music and it’s opinion-based. I don’t want to embarrass this young lady, but she has more Grammys than anyone and never won Album of the Year,” the Brooklyn-born rapper began.
“She has more Grammys than everyone and never won Album of the Year,” Jay Z continued. “So even by your own metrics, that doesn’t work. Think about that. Most Grammys never won Album of the Year. That doesn’t work.”
But Jay Z didn’t end there, he went in hard, spitting some honesty and getting an audible reaction from the crowd.
“But outside of that, we got to keep showing up. Keep showing up until they give you all those accolades you feel you deserve,” Jay Z ended.
