Drake ESPYS

Drake Host's The 2014 ESPYs: Competing With Chris Brown, Skylar Diggins Kiss and Macklemore Diss!

Last night, Drake hosted ESPN's annual celebration of all things sports, the ESPY Awards. The rapper seemed like a natural onstage, and hosted the awards with ease and total charisma.  

During the show, Drake showed off his acting skills in a series of hilarious skits and monologues. One of the biggest surprises of the night was when former enemy, Chris Brown, made a surprise cameo in The Drake Vs Blake skit, which also featured Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin. 

He also sang some funny songs, including "Honorable Mentions," which included another shot at Macklemore's Grammy wins. The song was dedicated to athletes who haven’t won championships and Drake tossed a photo of Macklemore accepting his Grammy Award up on the big screen behind him, and sang the words, ”Real talent doesn’t always win championships, like real music doesn’t always win Grammys.” 

"Side Pieces" featured guest vocals from Brian McKnight and a "Worst Behaviour" parody about Donald Sterling. In another sketch, he did "Let It Go" from Frozen as Manny Pacquiao. Oh, and he blew in Lance Stephenson's ear....
