Kanye West’s BET Honors Acceptance Speech

Kanye West was honored at the 2015 BET Honors with the Visionary Award.

From his music to his fashion line and shoes, Kanye is definitely a trendsetter. Kanye admitted that for the first time in his life he understands what it means to be humbled.

But in true Kanye fashion, he had to make his speech about everything except the real reason why he was there.  He even told a story about Kim Kardashian’s late father.

“She told me where her father, Robert Kardashian, walked out and on the side of his Bentley, they wrote, ‘Nigger Lover,’ because Robert Kardashian was the genius that put together the defense team that got O.J. off,  She had never saw her father curse, get mad; he was the most laidback human being. And he went so crazy and tried to chase the people down. And she stood there crying and said, ‘Dad, why are you going so crazy?’ And he said to her, ‘One day, you may have a black child. A beautiful, beautiful, beautiful black child. And it’s going to be hard. You’re going to see how hard it is.’”

Not sure what they had to do with the award but okay…

We miss the old ‘Ye.
