Kanye West Wins Three 2012 Grammy Awards
Kanye West nabbed three awards at the 2012 Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 12) in Los Angeles. The rapper-producer won Best Rap / Sung Collaboration for 'All of the Lights,' which featured a slew of artists including Rihanna, Kid Cudi and Fergie.
In addition, Yeezy's 'All of the Lights' was recognized for Best Rap Song and his album 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' won for Best Rap Album. West beat out some major contenders in that Best Rap Album category including Nicki Minaj's 'Pink Friday,' Lil Wayne's 'Tha Carter IV,' Lupe Fiasco's 'Lasers' and himself with 'Watch the Throne,' his collaborative album with Jay-Z.
Unfortunately, West wasn't there to collect his three golden gramophones (where are you Yeezy?), but legendary producer Jimmy Jam, who was a presenter, was happy to accept them for him. "I'm coming home with a lot of Grammys tonight," he joked with the audience.
