Kanye Jokes About The Kardashians In BET Honors Acceptance Speech


While Kanye is probably still trying to understand why it to BET so damn long to honor his musical brilliance, the “Yeezus” rapper is making headlines for his Visionary Award acceptance speech. It always surprises us how Ye’, somehow, manages to squeeze in a mention about his wife Kim Kardashian’s beauty, body or dating history when he actually should just be talking about his genius.

“They say white girls go out and get a rich black dude. But my wife dated broke black dudes. So it’s not about the money,” he joked. When Ye wasn’t being Kim’s number one fan, he dropped gems like: “You can’t be the kid in the back of the classroom with black nail polish. U have to smack the sh*t out of people with your creativity.”

Dame Dash was on hand to present Ye with his award. In case you don’t remember, they were at odds ever since Dame expressed he was a “little tight” at the super producer. While, they seem to be on decent terms, Dash left us feeling a little awkward after he used his introduction time to tell the audience hoe he still has “emotional” problems with Ye.” He also said, his “history with Kanye is I didn’t respect him as a rapper because I was around the greatest rappers … but he has courage.”

Uhm. Ok.

In other Kanye news, the Yeezus rapper is scheduled to spend his birthday chatting with Ellen Degenres, who accidentally announced, on her website, the name of Kanye’s forthcoming album saying, “he has a new CD coming out called ‘Only One.’” Before you get all praise Yeezus, it turns out  Ellen simply made a mistake.

A rep for Kanye said,

“Only One” is the title of ‘Ye’s first album single, which is an ode to his late mother Donda West and his daughter North West.
