Drake hosted the ESPYs last night and took the stage to perform an original song called "Honorable Mention," a B-side to "We Are the Champions," dedicated to all the runner-ups, including himself.
Think back to six months ago at the Grammys when Macklemore and Ryan Lewis won THREE Grammy Awards in the Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Album categories. It pissed a lot of people off, including Drake, who told Rolling Stone that he felt "robbed." Yes, he was robbed, indeed. I'm still listening to Nothing Was the Same and losing sleep over the thought of his new album Views from the 6.
Apparently, Drake is still a bit salty over Macklemore's Grammy wins. In "Honorable Mention," he took the chance to call out Macklemore. "Real talent doesn't always win championships, like real music doesn't always win Grammys," Drake sang while a picture of Macklemore with his trophies showed up on the big screen. *Shots fired*

Drake also took a few jabs at Iggy Azalea and her boyfriend Nick Young, calling them "the poor man's J and B." Nick Young seemed to take it lightheartedly, laughing when the cameras cut to him.
Peep the full song and performance below.
