 Drake Hosts Junos; Goes Home Empty Handed(AllHipHop News) Hip-Hop star Drake hosted the Juno Awards in Toronto, Canada last night (March 27th) at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

While a variety of rappers snagged Juno Awards, Drake was not one of them.

Despite having garnered six nominations for his album Thank Me Later – more than any other artist – Drake went home empty handed.

The rapper’s Thank Me Later lost the Rap Recording of the Year category to rapper Shad, who won for his album TSOL during the non-televised portion of the Juno Awards.

Justin Bieber, who did not attend the awards, was one of the night’s big winners, taking home two awards for Pop Album of the Year and the Fan Choice Awards for his album My World 2.0.

K’Naan took home a Juno for Single of the Year for the remixed version of his song “Wavin’ Flag,” which was recorded to benefit victims of the earthquake in Haiti, while doubling as the theme for the 2010 World Cup.

Arcade Fire snagged a total of four Juno’s for their album The Suburbs, which won Best Album, Best Alternative Album, Best Group and Best songwriter for the single “Ready to Start.”
