Drake won the top prize Thursday night at the mtvU Woodie Awards, held at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas.
The rapper received the Woodie of the Year prize, which is presented to an artist who “owned” the past 12 months. He was not there to accept, as he’s currently touring the U.K.
In addition, Beyoncé was awarded the Did It My Way Woodie for unleashing innovative ideas in the music biz. That’s in recognition of the surprise release of her self-titled album in December.
A$AP Rocky and Skrillex won the Best Collaboration Woodie, for “Wild for the Night.”
You can watch the Woodie Awards Sunday night at 8 p.m. Eastern time on MTV.
