Despite a last minute performance cancellation due to scheduling complications, Drake received three Grammy nominations: Best Rap Performance for "Started From The Bottom," Best Rap Song for "Started From The Bottom" and Best Rap Album for "Nothing Was The Same."

Drake's third studio album, "Nothing Was The Same," debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200, and has sold over one million copies since its release. Tracks such as "Started From The Bottom" and "Hold On, We're Going Home," and his swift-spitting verse on "Versace," have made Drake a consistent force in the 2013 hip-hop game.

In the past, Drake has been nominated for 13 Grammys in categories such as Best Rap Song, Best New Artist and Best Rap Performance. It wasn't until last year's Grammy Awards, however, that Drake won an award from the music organization, taking home Best Rap Album for his record "Take Care."

To see the full list of nominees, head over to the Grammys website. You can catch the 2014 Grammys on Jan. 26, 2014, airing on CBS.
