Announcing the Best Rap Artist nominees included Drake, Fetty Wap, Wiz Khalifa and Silento however, Ludacris was left to fill-in-the-blank when it was time to say Future’s name.
The pair have had a rocky relationship since calling off their engagement in August of 2014 due to Future‘s alleged cheating, which he denies and was previously engaged in a custody battle over their son.
