Drake Reportedly Cancels BET Awards Appearance

Despite 12 BET Awards nominations, Drake reportedly not present at the annual awards show.

According to RadarOnline.com, Canadian crooner/rapper Drake will reportedly be a no show at the 2013 BET Awards, which takes place today (June 30) in Los Angeles.

“Everything is in flux. The producers are all pulling their hair out,” a source revealed to RadarOnline.com earlier today.

Drake's name was also left out of the package shown at the top of the awards show, which introduced the various performers and presenters at this year's BET Awards. The Toronto rapper is nominated for 12 awards, the most of any artist this year.

The Young Money artist has notoriously feuded with fellow singer Chris Brown who opened the awards show with a performance that included a surprise appearance from Young Money rapstress Nicki Minaj. Both Brown and Drake made headlines last year when they were involved in a nightclub brawl at W.i.P. in New York City.

In the year since the W.i.P. fight, both artists have exchanged words via diss records and interviews. Most recently, Drake commented on his feud with Brown possibly ending “really badly” during an interview with GQ magazine.

    drake is a homo and the BET awards is a show for half life retards. rap music sucks and so does all of urban music. the industry is a walking corpse that appeals to the biggest low lives on the planet. OMG drake didn't show?! who gives a fuck. listen to something from another time and let's get back to our own lives.

      IN MY OPINION RAP NO LONGER BELONGS TO THE STREETS! THE INDUSTRY OWNS IT NOW..EVERYBODY TRYING TO MAKE IT MAINSTREAM JUST DOES IT FOR THE MONEY NOT THE CRAFT...REMEMBER THAT THERE IS OTHER ELEMENTS TO HIPHOP..AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM HAS BEEN IGNORED. RAP IS NO LONGER A CULTURE OF THE STREETS. A RAPPERS MAIN GOAL IS TO LOOK AND DRESS LIKE AN OLD RICH WHITE GUY. FOR REALS. WHERES THE REAL HOODS AT NOT THESE FAKE RAP ACTORS. JUST LIKE THE WHITES TOOK ROCKN ROLL THE HOOD NEEDS SOMETHING NEW...GIVE UP RAP!

    For the past 2-3 weeks I have been watching bet and on the website, never did they mention drake performing nor was he advertised being there. After watching the show there was no A listers with the exception of the 30 seconds Mariah performance. In other words BET can't afford DRAKE

    As an accountant for YMCMB, I would like to inform all of you what happened. A rich Persian family living in Beverly Hills offered Drake 10 million to perform at a private party in their mansion this evening. This is the highest fee for any performance EVER and proof that Drake is the best musician of all time.

  • Drake runs rap

    Drake is too good for these irrelevent wack niggas drake don't need to perform at some ghetto black trash award filled with a bunch of low class ignorant bottom feeder niggas. Drake runs rap fact

    • Ja Rule Gang

      dont know bout him but Ja Rule 10 million sold I-N-C

    • fuck drake

      @thetalk your ass is likely under the age of 18. that explains your horseshit FOLLOWER mentality. selling out shows & records is no longer associated with talent, it hasn't been for nearly a decade. drake's a canadian child star pussy faggot bitch who makes "music" for 10 year old white girls, young money caters to skinny jean wearing homos and they make pop music. fuck awards, they dont mean shit and they no longer represent the celebration of actual talent and artistry. so i'll say it again...FUCK DRAKE! what you gonna say? call me a hater? i have no swag? i'm jealous? he's got money? those are the usual conjectures your generation comes up with.

    • thetalk

      Drake running this game selling out shows and selling like crazy. True talent can't be ignored. He didn't show up and he still won awards. What they gona say next?

    • fuck drake
