Although Macklemore & Ryan Lewis might not have been able to attend this year’s People’s Choice Awards, that didn’t stop the duo from winning Favorite Hip-Hop Artist at the ceremony Wednesday night (Jan. 8).

With the success of their debut LP, ‘The Heist,’ which has received seven Grammy nominations, the duo is kicking off 2014 with a bang. And this is just another cherry on top of their musical sundae.

The duo competed against Drake, Jay Z, Kanye West and Lil Wayne in the category.

Aside from winning the award tonight,┬áthe ‘Thrift Shop’ artist recently made a little boy’s dream come true when he met six-year-old AJ Huwangbo on Jan. 6. Huwangbo was diagnosed with a life-threatening heart condition, but that didn’t stop him from meeting his hero, Macklemore.

The Seattle native also earned a big honor this week from The Source. The hip-hop publication named the rapper “Man of the Year.”
