Drake shouts out Vanessa Hudgens, Ludacris, and his dad at Billboard Music Awards

Drake used his second acceptance speech of the night to show gratitude to friends and family and tie up loose ends with former foes.

On his way to hopefully breaking aa Billboard Music Awards record, Drake used his speech to show gratitude to friends and family while tying up any loose ends with former foes.

While accepting his second Billboard Music Award of the night - Top Billboard 200 Album, for Views - Drake brought up a nameless friend who refused to support him publicly out of a fear of looking "thirsty."

"We’re all here on earth for a limited amount of time, we gotta show love while we’re here," Drake said.

From then on, he used his time on stage to formally resolve past disputes with Ludacris, shoot his shot at Vanessa Hudgens, thank Lil Wayne for opening doors for him and other artists, and express gratitude to Nicki Minaj for the two being able to keep their friendship intact. He closed his speech with a shout out to his dad.

Watch the speech below.
