Drake Takes Top Honor at 2014 mtvU Woodie Awards
Although Drake couldn’t make it out to the event, the crowd was in for a surprise when Lil Wayne accepted the Woodie on behalf of the ‘Trophies’ creator.
Chance the Rapper walked away with the Best Video Woodie for ‘Everybody’s Something,’ while A$AP Rocky, along with Skrillex,’ received the Best Collaboration Woodie for their track ‘Wild For the Night.’ And due to the unconventional release of Beyonce’s self-titled LP, she was awarded with the first-ever Did It My Way Woodie, an award that gives props to “pioneers who challenge tradition and unleash innovative ideas.”
“Thank you so much to mtvU for this Woodie Award for Best Video. It means a lot,” Chance the Rapper said as he accepted his award. “Thanks to Austin Vesely for directing it and to all the independent artists out there.”
