6:06 AM PT -- A rep for Ultimate Rap League tells TMZ ... Drake helped to broker the deal between Ultimate Rap League & Caffeine TV so that more people could view the battles. We're also told he wasn't drunk, but simply joking and flirting with a friend.
Drake was feeling it Saturday night, with a little help from a beverage.
Drake hosted a rap battle Saturday night in Long Beach, and he may not have been 3 sheets, but surely at least 2!
He was at the "Til Death Do Us Part" show, and as he chit-chatted with Nunu Nellz, it doesn't take an alcohol expert to see ... Drake was under the influence and having a blast. He wasn't in costume, but Drake's famous enough to be himself. Yeah, that doesn't really make sense.
