Drake Dissed Macklemore at the ESPYs?

by at .

Drake hosted the 2014 ESPY Awards on Wednesday night, and while the show was supposed to focus on the year's greatest achievements in sports Drizzy not surprisingly found a way to focus much of the attention on himself...and his many boring feuds.

First, a sketch featuring Drake and Chris Brown spoofed the fact that the two R&B/hip hop stars once wanted each other dead but are now total besties. 

Later in the show, Drake acknowledged his spat with rival rapper Macklemore in a slightly more subtle fashion:

That's Drake crooning a comedic song entitled "Honorable Mention" dedicated to all the runners-up in the crowd.

Watch the screen behind him when he sings "Real talent doesn't always win championships/Like real music doesn't always win Grammys."

Yes, it may seem that Drake is just saying that Macklemore doesn't make "real music" (which he is), but he's also hearkening back to a weird beef between the two that followed last year's Grammy Awards. 

After Macklemore took home the award for Best Rap Album, he texted fellow artist Kendrick Lamar to express his condolences tell Kendrick that he'd been "robbed."

Drake felt Macklemore's apology was was "wack as f--k" and expressed his opinion that the other rappers in the category (such as himself) should've also been contacted by Macklemore.

So yeah, it was another of Aubrey's epic temper tantrums and he dredged up the beef again for seemingly no reason at the ESPYs. Let it go, dude.
