Going in with 14 noms, Kendrick walked away with five awards — including Lyricist of the Year, Album of the Year (good kid, m.A.A.d city), and MVP of the Year. Drizzy matched his peer with five, including Best Hip-Hop Video and Track of the Year, both for “Started From the Bottom.”

A$AP Rocky and Jay Z both earned two awards. The Harlem rapper took the Best Collabo for “F***in’ Problems” and Best Hip-Hop Style in a tie with Nicki Minaj; and Jay Z got the Best Live Performer and Hustler of the Year honors.

  1. I am really digging this Drake and Kendrick rivalry alot! I miss the days in hip hop where the best used to clash at the top. I think it is good for the game that this happens and will hopefully lead to an epic battle. Seems like none of these rappers want to battle anymore. youtube.com/watch?v=ifrJUfAzAg4
