Drake is dominating the 2017 Billboard Music Awards as he nabbed yet another trophy, this one for Top Billboard 200 Album midway through the ceremony Sunday (May 21) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
In his acceptance speech for VIEWS, Drizzy had a laundry list of thank yous, including Ludacris, who he beefed with around 2011. The two fired lyrical shots back and forth with Luda claiming the Toronto star and Big Sean jacked his flow. There was also apparently a girl involved.
Well, Drake is beyond that now as he thanked the show’s host for his contributions to the culture.
“I wanna say Ludacris, I know we haven’t always seen eye to eye, but I’ve always been a big fan of yours, man,” he said. “I’ve got a love for you. I want to let you know that face to face while we’re still here.”

While that beef was squashed, Drake threatens to start another squabble when he compliments Ludacris’ partner in crime for the show Vanessa Hudgens.
“Vanessa Hudgens, you look incredible tonight,” he declared.
The camera caught Nicki Minaj’s face as she was mouthing “Excuse me? What about me?”
But don’t fear, Barbz. Drake made sure to give proper accolades to his friend(?), who he recently reunited with after Minaj broke up with Meek Mill.
“I wanna say Nicki Minaj, I’m so glad we found our way back because I love you and I could never ever ever see it another way,” the Top Male Artist shared.
Nicki was pleased as she shouted “I love you” back.
Drake will give a special performance at the Billboard Music Awards and he’s still up for several trophies.
