Rapper Lil Wayne was honored with the Songwriter of the Year prize at the Broadcast Music, Inc. R&B/Hip-Hop Awards on Friday.

Lil Wayne won the trophy at the music industry event which celebrates the songwriters, producers and publishers of the most-performed R&B/hip-hop songs of the previous year.

Rap duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis picked up an award for Song of the Year for their track "Can't Hold Us" and teen star Zendaya received the Social Star accolade for using social media to showcase her music. Her category was voted by fans via Twitter.com.
