BET Still has love for Kanye West

20 Sep

BETKanye West’s MTV stunt looked as if it had cost West a great and growing career. Throughout the remainder of the award show, West was booed any time that he was mentioned.

The backlash against Kanye has been tough. Artists such as Pink! have expressed their displeasure with the rapper. Fellow rapper, 50 Cent, even offered to give Kanye a black eye if he ever tried that on him. Things have been so tough on Kanye West that President Obama called him a “jackass.”

In the midst of all of this, Jay-Z spoke in defense of Kanye West. Jay referred to the rapper as “super-passionate.” Since that time, things have cooled down a bit for West, but the displeasure and discontent for him is still there.

Despite all of this, BET still feels that Kanye West is deserving of some of their hip hop awards. Kanye West is leading all other hip hop artists with nine nominations at the BET Hip Hop Awards. This is followed by seven nominations from Jay-Z and Lil Wayne and six from T.I.

Someone out there is still down with Kanye West, so the healing can begin.

    It’s time to teach this narcicist a big lesson. Don’t buy his albums and don’t show up to any concert he’s in. Not forever – but he needs to be taught a lesson. He’s not as great as HE thinks HE is. We can do easily wihtout him – plenty of other talent just waiting for their shot.

    I do think the president said it best – although I doubt the mic was supposed to be on – – – JACKASS. Perfect descripton for Kanye.
