The Throne Wins Best Group at 2012 BET Awards
Congrats to Kanye West and Jay-Z! The Throne reigns supreme, taking home the Best Group trophy at the 2012 BET Awards.The all-white clad West, who had just finished a performance with G.O.O.D. Music, took on the acceptance speech role -- at first. "I'm bad at losing, I'm bad at winning," the oft-arrogant (but usually deservedly) rapper said sheepishly. "I always say the wrong thing. I wish Jay-Z was here to say something politically correct."
As they often do when you're one half of the Throne, West's wish came true. Hov, donning a sharp grey suit, rushed the stage and hugged his pal, delivering the other half of the acceptance speech -- and, ironically, saying something pretty politically incorrect, perhaps making up for West's atypical amount of tact.
"We really worked really hard on this album," Jay-Z said. "We didn't take anything for granted, we didn't rely on our name ... we appreciate everybody," he added. "We appreciate the tour, going from here to Europe to bring you all that good s--- ... er, that good stuff!" Minus one for the censors, who weren't quite quick enough to catch the S-bomb when S. Carter dropped it.
West was a much better sport than he's usually given credit for, giving props to his competition. "A shout out to Maybach Music and Young Money for making this a good competition!"
Yeezy being humble?! That s--- cray.
