Drake Says "Hold On, We're Going Home" Is Not Hip Hop, Accepts VMA For "Best Hip Hop Video"

Drake: "Rappers, better luck next year."

Although Drake was not able to attend the MTV VMAs, where the rapper-singer won the "Best Hip Hop Video" award for "Hold On, We're Going Home," the emcee delivered his acceptance speech while on tour with Lil Wayne. 

In his speech, Drake thanks God, his mother and Lil Wayne. He also responds to critics who said "Hold On, We're Going Home" was not a Hip Hop record. 

"I know this is a Hip Hop award," Drake says in the concert clip, "and I know a lot of you are frustrated like, 'this is not a Hip Hop song.' And you know what? You're right. I tricked you all. Rappers, better luck next year."

The category also included the following videos: Eminem's "Bezerk," Childish Gambino's "3005" Kanye West's "Black Skinhead" and Wiz Khalifa's "We Dem Boyz."

    Name Mos Def's last hit. Does he even have a hit? lol

    "Better singers: Andre 3000, Cee-Lo, Bone Thugs, Mos Def, Missy Elliott, Kanye West, etc." Andre sounds gay. Cee Lo sounds like he's gurgling cat piss. Bone Thugs were gangsta rappers. Mos Def was more lyrical than Drake, but couldn't construct songs to save his back child support non paying ass. Missy Elliot was annoying as fuck, and Kanye used Auto Tune to hide the fact he had no range.

      Not true, not true, they still sing in their records, Mos Def can make a song, Missy ain't annoying, and Kanye has more range than Drake, who also used AutoTune.

      Fuck you, son. Hannah Montana was Miley Cyrus' magnum opus, her best work in her catalog. Growing up in the hood, we used to wake up 8 in the morning, grab our bowls of cereals, turn on the tube to Disney and sing the theme song, "Best of Both Worlds". Before we went to school, Mom made sure we never forgot our sequined Hannah Montana lunchboxes. At night, before we went to sleep have niggas huddled up 6 in the bed(3 at the foot, 3 at the head) and we would ask our mothers to read us a bedtime story, and they would hand us our Hannah Montana dolls to cuddle with. You know, with the pink guitar. Miley has more creative talent and imagination than you do in your anonymous pinkie.

      There is no metaphor in her riding the wrecking ball. Miley's an artist with zero talent or originality and she will never be the next Madonna.

      If thinking outside the box means shaking your ass and running around either half-naked or full naked, then almost every female artist is thinking outside the box.

      If Miley Cyrus can ride a wrecking ball without falling or tipping over, then that should tell you it's a metaphor referring to how well she can ride the dick. She's an artist of omnipotent and unlimited talent. Miley is on her way to becoming the next Madonna.

      No, it's because of the opposite. MTV doesn't care about talent, only popularity.

    Drake is dope when he wants to actually flow. But lately, this motherfucka being such a damn pussy. NWTS was such a soft album, you can't even call it hip hop. Drake better grow some balls and bring some heat on the next album, otherwise he might as well not even call himself a rapper, that bitch a singer.

    drake is a genius. he knows what the fuck he is doing. he raps in order for people to call him hip hop, but makes R&B type songs like "hold on, we're going home" and people still nominate him for hip hop because they really can't place him anywhere else. same with others like nelly, ja rule or kid cudi. all you old hatin ass niggas should just accept that hip hop has changed for the better and drake is leading the way.

      "In the United States, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling more than 79,200 copies in its first week, becoming one of the lowest selling albums of 2013.

The album also marks Eminem's 1st No. 9 album.[104] In its second week the album dropped to number two, selling 210,000 more copies.[105]" How can his album debut at #1, while also being his first #9 album, then drop to #2?

      Since you wanna talk sales, let's talk sales. There's many rappers who've sold more and quicker than Drake. NWTS is NOT the fastest selling album of 2013, that title goes to Eminem for MMLP2, which sold more than 2 million to date. Aubrey still has some catching up to do. Even so, sales doesn't make an artist better.

    • drake runs rap

      sorry, but no one sells albums quicker than Drake. NWTS was the fastest selling album, selling 1.3 million copies in 2013. I'd like to see your favorite rappers sell that amount of records in that fast amount of time.

      Drake basically told other rappers to go hard or go home, and judging by the way they're slacking off in the rhyming department, he might be right. Sales are decreasing year after year, and pretty soon, if they don't step their game up, Uncle Sam gonna repossess all their awards, their houses, everything they used to work for.
