The rapper wasn't present for the ceremony's first award.

Drake's 2016 has been his biggest year so far. In fact, it seemed like Drizzy was on top of everything imaginable this year — at least, until the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards. Sunday night (Aug. 28) we learned there is one thing Drake can't handle, and that's New York traffic.

After Diddy announced Drake won best hip-hop video at the 2016 VMAs, he revealed the Toronto MC was unable to take the stage to accept the award because he was "stuck in traffic." That might be a VMAs first.

Hot tip for Drake: Take the subway next time you're in New York. It's almost always faster.
