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 because 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!”
