Drake Wins VMA For Best Hip-Hop Video
Drizzy's HYFR video with Lil Wayne triumphs over some tough competition...
Despite some tough competition it was Drake who walked away with the Moonman for Best Hip-Hop Video at MTV's Video Music Awards tonight (Thursday Sept 6th).
The video, a toast to Drizzy's black and Jewish background, finds Drake reliving a bar mitzvah. Like his music video, his acceptance speech was personal. He brought up the entire Young Money crew with Minaj and Lil Wayne (who's featured on the track and provides the hook) flanking him.
"Well, first of all, obviously gotta thank Lil Wayne because he killed the song. I gotta thank everybody from Young Money, shout out to Toronto, one time!" he yelled to the crowd.
"The video, it's about being me. Being black and Jewish. I went to this house party one time, and when I showed up there, it was a bunch of kids and I ended up getting made fun of," he recalled onstage.
"I want to dedicate this award to any kid that's ever had a long walk home by yourself, you know what I'm saying? This is to you man for real. We made it."
