Kanye West will finally be rewarded for all of his hard work at this year’s Video Music Awards. After over 30 nominations and countless innovations in music and culture, the rapper and visionary is set to receive the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
The G.O.O.D. Music leader is being recognized for his contributions to the music video in particular and surprisingly, this will only be the third time he will accept anything on the VMA stage… Well, four if you count the whole Taylor Swift thing.
Luckily, both Swift and MTV have forgiven him as his creativity continues to soar.
Well deserved, Kanye.
