"I was surprised, I didn't think I was going to win," he said when asked about winning the award. "That's why we wasn't there, we didn't know, we really didn't know. I got caught up doing some other stuff but I wish I was there."

The A$AP Mob artist also talked about his new award, which he says he believes validates him as one of the best out.

"It feel good, I felt like I was one of the greats," he said. "It's just proven to everyone else now."
