Drake Awarded The Hal David Starlight Award At Songwriters Hall Of Fame Event

Drizzy gets another accolade for his achievements over the past few years.

Drake has amassed several awards throughout his career, with the latest added to the mantelpiece last night. The Young Money rapper was awarded the Hal David Starlight Award - essentially a best new artist award - during the 42nd Annual Songwriters Hall of Fame ceremony, which took place in New York City, New York.

“Thank you. You’re far too kind,” he tweeted following the ceremony, posting a picture of his award.

Drizzy dedicated the award to his mother, who was in the audience “looking like Barbra Streisand,” and thanked Alicia Keys for giving him his "first placement." He then performed “The Calm” in spoken-word, later joining a band.

Chaka Khan was also given the Howie Richmond Hitmaker Award, while Billy Joel honored Garth Brooks by joining him during a performance of “Shameless.”

    I would normally give congrats to somebody for getting something like this but I took a minute to listen to the "hot" hip hop station on my radio while driving today. When I turned it on Lil Waynes "How to Love" was playing...They followed this with Nicki Minajs new single and then played "Im on One" featuring Drake...So I park the car and walk into best buy. Do a little shopping come out about 45 minutes later and that same Nicki Minaj song is just coming on again. Then 2 songs after that they play "Im on one" again. Its gotta be pretty fucking hard to sell records/get awards if radio stations are only playing your labels music huh?

    "Songwriting award" and anything related to Young Money should not be used in the same sentence.

This nigga wasnt born yo....he was blossomed. When he aint startin pillow fights on tour n pollinatin flowers n shit son stays spittin wit that tenderized Stephen Hawking voice. The niggas heart got a ponytail. Son could probably make you any origami animal you ask him to namsayin. He the type a nigga to sprinkle rose pedals on his bed before he go to sleep n shit. Son could probably frost a cake usin his eyes nahmean. This niggas moms n pops basically got Rick Rolled when the doctor said "Its a boy!" But it aint like Tone wanna see the nigga get torn to pieces by a pack a wolves n shit. If I seen him would the god wanna beat the garnier fructis outta him? I dont kno b. Maybe? By the way the homegirl @FeFeGirlWonder on twitter mighta said it best when she told me Aubrey was a pre-cum baby. Word. Aight peace.
