The 2014 MTV VMA’s aired on Sunday night live from The Forum in Inglewood, California. Drake was up for ‘Hip-Hop Video Of The Year’ and was able to take the win for the Majid Jordan featured “Hold On, We’re Going Home”.
Due to the fact that he’s currently on tour, Drake was unable to attend the award show so Common accepted the award on his behalf. Last night the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour hit Boston and Drake made an impromptu VMA acceptance speech. Lil Wayne acted as Common and Drake came out and accepted the award from him. “First of all I want to thank God. I’d also like to thank my mother cause I love her very much”, Drake stated. He also poked fun at the fact that “Hold On, We’re Going Home” is actually not a hip-hop song.
