The 6 God gave a special speech when he won the Favorite Artist Award, beating out artists like his Summer Sixteen tourmate Future and Fetty Wap for the honor. "I want to give a big shoutout to my brother Future, and Fetty, of course, for making incredible music. I want to thank Kyla, who’s here all the way from the UK. Without her, I never would have made the song 'One Dance,' so shout out to her."
After that, Drake decided to dig a little deeper and spoke to hip-hop artists in general. "For our genre, I like to keep things exciting and keep making music. Shout out to everybody that’s trying to do the same thing. More Life is coming soon and more chune for your head top so watch how you speak on my name, you know?" he said before pointing at the audience and walking off stage.
DJ Khaled, who was on hand to perform "Do You Mind" at the show, also took a moment to shout out Drake's wins and new album later on Instagram. "Congrats @champagnepapi@amas #MoreLife soon come," he wrote. Drake then on DJ Khaled’s post, "Some bwoy need fi make some song and stop cry" alongside a star and a trophy emoji.
Fans speculated that he was addressing Kanye West who discussed Drake and DJ Khaled's song "For Free" in a recent concert rant. "Khaled and Drake and radio and Doc and [Real] 92.3 and everybody. Is it just me or did you hear that song so many times 'you say you wanna play for free.' Aye, aye. You know what it is, though? Because aye, I love Drake. I love Khaled. But they set that song up, bro," West said during his already infamous rant in Sacramento the other night. Still, others thought that Drake's "watch how you speak on my name" comment was actually a hit at Meek Mill since the pair have been caught up in a public beef in the recent past.
