Drake On VMA: Says He Won A Hip-Hop Award For A Non-Hip-Hop Song (Video)
Twenty-four hours after Common accepted Drake’s 2014 MTV Video Music Award for “Best Hip-Hop Video,” the Toronto superstar was able to properly receive his medal. The Young Money Cash Money superstar spoke while on tour with Lil Wayne in Boston, Massachusetts. Delivering fans the speech he was unable to in Los Angeles on August 24, Drake acknowledge that the Nothing Was The Same single, “Hold On, We’re Going Home” was not a deserving win.
“I know this is a Hip Hop award,” Drake said in the clip below, “and I know a lot of you are frustrated like, ‘this is not a Hip Hop song.’ And you know what? You’re right. I tricked you all. Rappers, better luck next year.”
The nominees who lost to the multi-platinum star included Childish Gambino, Kanye West, Eminem, and Wiz Khalifa.
Think Drizzy was throwing shits, or just Champagne Papi poppin’? Do you think, by 2014’s definition, “Hold On, We’re Going Home” is a Hip-Hop song?
