JAY-Z thanks Dr. Dre during his Global Impact Award acceptance speech




JAY-Z received the 2nd annual Dr. Dre Global Impact Award during last night’s Grammy 2024 awards show to honor his impactful legacy — and brought 12-year-old daughter Blue Ivy on stage to celebrate. “Thank you very much. I used to say it was a sippy cup for Blue, but Blue’s grown up now she doesn’t take sippy cups,” he began. “And she has her own Grammys.”

Then Hov continued his speech by giving Dr. Dre his flowers: “Thanks to Dr. Dre. He’s somewhere here. There he is! Andre Young, thank you sir. All the doors that you opened. Showed us that we can be a rock stars. Seeing you on Rolling Stone. When you came out West, you took it to whole new level. Put us on the covers. Put us around the world, you and Snoop, all that y’all did all these records y’all broke. Thank you for this.”

JAY-Z also used his acceptance speech at the 2024 Grammys to call out the organization by questioning the process behind the voted categories: “We want y’all to get it right. At least getting close to right. And obviously it’s subjective. Y’all don’t gotta clap at everything. Obviously it’s subjective because, you know, it’s music and it’s opinion-based. But, you know, some things — I don’t want to embarrass this young lady [Beyoncé], but she has more Grammys than everyone and never won album of the year. So even by your own metrics, that doesn’t work. Think about that. The most Grammys, never won album of the year. That doesn’t work.”
