Drake Wins BMI Urban Award For Songwriter Of The Year 2012

Last night Drake won the BMI Urban Awards for Songwriter of The Year. This has been his second time winning award in a row. Drake wasn’t present at this award show, but Birdman and T-Minus accepted the award on his behalf.

“Both Drake and Lil Wayne tied with songwriter credits each on seven songs that rank among the year’s most-performed tunes. Among the credits helping Drake claim his second consecutive songwriter of the year are the hits “Aston Martin Music,” “Headlines,” “Moment 4 Life” and “What’s My Name?” Lil Wayne’s credits include several co-writes with Drake (including “She Will”) plus “6 Foot 7 Foot,” “How to Love,” “Look at Me Now” and “Motivation.”
