Drake Cancels Performance at Grammys Nominations

Rep says Would You Like a Tour? schedule is complicated.

The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live! - Countdown to Music's Biggest Night will have to go on without Drake, reports TMZ. The rapper dropped out of the LL Cool J-hosted event due to "scheduling complications" with his Would You Like a Tour? his rep told the site.
