The 2012 Woodie Awards were held Thursday evening in Austin, Texas. The rapper not only left with “Woodie Of The Year”, but also brought home the “Performing Woodie”.

"I've worked so hard every day for the last five years and winning tonight means people recognize what I'm doing…I'm really thankful. This is a huge win for my fans and me," Miller said during his acceptance speech.

The event featured many live performamces including Santigold, Shrillex, Aoki, Chiddy, Lil Jon, and Mac Miller. Miller hit the stage with some of his fans’ favourites such as “Party on 5th Ave.”, “Smile Back”, “Donald Trump”, and “Loud”.
