"We as a label, Young Money/Cash Money have had an incredible year,' Drake told The BoomBox. "It's great to be here and celebrate it." Decked out in a plum colored Alexander McQueen suit, the Toronto native -- who snagged four Grammy nods, including Best New Artist -- expressed his pride for Minaj, who is nominated with Ludacris in the Best Rap Performance category for 'My Chick Bad.' "Her being nominated for a Grammy is incredible. Its dope for her, I'm very proud. I just remember riding the bus with her, us finding ourselves and finding each other, it's a growing moment, very much like being on Degrassi, itís a moment you never forget."
The night commenced with surprise performances from Wayne, Jay Sean, DJ Khaled and Busta Rhymes.
