Drake couldn’t be at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, so when he won for Best Hip-Hop Video, Common accepted the award on his behalf. Drake couldn’t make it┬ábecause he and Lil Wayne are busy running around on the Drake vs. Lil Wayne Tour. At their Boston show, Drake acknowledged the win with a little help from Wayne. Watch his acceptance speech above.

“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! Thank you!”
