On Saturday, a day before the VMAs, a worried Drake told MTV News, "I might have to tell Macklemore like, 'Yo, I'll buy that trophy off of you if he beats me.' I really want one bad."
Drake went up against Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kendrick Lamar, ASAP Rocky, and J. Cole in the Best Hip Hop Video category.
He continued, "'Started From the Bottom' was like my first time stepping up as a director, getting a director's credit with Little X. I couldn't ask for a better moment. I need the trophy for my house, period--even if somebody else gets one I might buy it off them."
Macklemore did end up winning, but Drake hasn't made any public attempts to reach out to him yet.
