Last night, Kanye West was honored with the Visionary Award at the 2015 BET Honors. Although it was a well-deserved award, presenter Dame Dash didn’t waste time expressing how he felt about ‘Ye, who, as we all know, was once a part of Rocafella.
Dame’s introduction about Kanye brings back memories of why Rocafella split.
A video honoring Kanye and his work was also shown and it featured Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, and his wife Kim Kardashian.
When ‘Ye accepted the honor, he reportedlytook mild slight shots at Dame, saying:
I understand how it feels to be humbled.
On top of it all, Dame was missing a tooth.
Speaking of teeth, Yeezy recently revealed why he doesn’t smile. Earlier this week, during the Fashion Los Angeles Awards, Kanye explained the reasoning behind his resting stone face:
Back when I was working on Yeezus, I saw this book from the 1800s and it was velvet-covered with brass and everything. I looked at all these people’s photos, and they look so real and their outfits were incredible and they weren’t smiling.
People, you know the paparazzi, always come up to me, ‘Why you not smiling?’ and I think, not smiling makes me smile.
When you see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling because it just wouldn’t look as cool.
It seems like Ye & Kim are on the same page. Stay tuned for the 2015 BET Honors airing February 29th.
