Watch Drake’s Opening Monologue + Skit With Chris Brown At The 2014 ESPYs [VIDEO]
Drake continued on his crusade to become the coolest dude on earth by hosting the ESPYs and killing it from the moment he set foot on stage.
Drizzy hosted ESPN’s annual award show and right out of the gate he had no problem making fun of himself as his first joke of the night addressed his reputation as a bandwagon fan. He put the spotlight on Cleveland for a moment by poking fun at Johnny Manziel’s partying ways—and who knew Drake and LeBron James grew up together?
He also poked fun at Dwayne Wade, Prince Fielder, Donald Sterling and Russell Westbrook’s terrible outfits. He even addressed the racial controversy surrounding the Washington Redskins franchise.
Another highlight of the night was the ‘Lance Cam’—where Drake hilariously mocked former Indiana Pacer Lance Stephenson for infamously blowing into LeBron James’ ear during the NBA Playoffs.
All in all, Drake did a great job hosting the ESPYs but by FAR his best moment of the night was the ‘Drake vs. Blake’ skit (below) with L.A. Clippers star Blake Griffin. There was even a cameo from Chris Brown, which pretty much solidified that the two have put their beef over Rihanna behind them and are now BFFs.
Based off of his performance, I see more hosting opportunities in Drake’s future.
