Now that Kanye West is finally getting the recognition from the fashion industry he always thought he deserved, it’s time for the music industry to follow suit – and MTV is ready, willing and able. The controversial and oft-polarizing rapper is set to be honored at this year’s Video Music Awards. Yeezy will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award this year, which makes sense considering the rapper has rolled out more than a few iconic videos in his time.
We’re sure Kanye will come dressed to the nines to collect his honor. In the meantime, MTV has released a short video announcing West as the recipient of the award, which you can see above.
Six years ago, Kanye famously interrupted Taylor Swift as she collected her VMA for Best Female Video – this sounds like a great opportunity for Swiftie to exact sweet revenge.
