According to Variety, a rep for the Recording Academy confirmed the decision was made by Drake and his management and the motivation is currently “unclear.”

The 35-year-old rapper was nomimated for Best Rap Album with Certified Lover Boy and Best Rap Performance for his song “Way 2 Sexy” feat. Future and Young Thug.

With the elimination of Drake from both categories, the Recording Academy will resume voting with the remaining four nominees instead of extending the nomination to the projects with the 6th most votes.
