[Video] Drake hosts The ESPYS Awards 2014

Drake hosts ESPYS

This was my first time watching all of the ESPYS awards and my reason to be honest is because Drake. He goes down in history for being the first non-athlete to host the awards and it was definitely entertaining to watch; with skits varying with Drake and Blake Griffin, a performance dedicated to “Side pieces” with Brian McKnight, and “Honorable Mentions” for those athletes who couldn’t quite win anything this year!

Shad joins the VERY short list of Arcade Fire, Owen Pallett, and Metric to be nominated for a third time.

Mac DeMarco — Salad Days
Drake — Nothing Was The Same
