Finally, Kanye West Wins Award (and is Humbled)

by at . Comments

In a rare moment of humility at the BET Hip-Hop Awards on Sunday night, rapper Kanye West won - and said he was undeserving of - an award.

After winning the Video of the Year award for "Stronger," West took the stage and poked fun the many honors he was passed over for - and was not happy about - at the recent MTV Video Music Awards (also the site of the infamous Kid Rock / Tommy Lee fight and the Britney Spears embarrassment).

"Every time I'm nominated for something I fix my scarf, but then I don't be comin' up," the somewhat egomaniacal fiance of Alexis Phifer cracked.

He then became uncharacteristically humble and said that he thought UGK and Outkast deserved the award instead, for "International Players Anthem."

"I've been waiting for the opportunity to win an award I shouldn't win," Kanye West said, calling the groups to come take the statue from him.

After UGK and Big Boi of Outkast took the stage, they thanked the 30-year-old rapper but then gave the award back to Kanye West, saying that he deserved it. Yes, it was a gigantic love-fest at the Hip Hop Awards!

West, Common and T.I. each won two trophies. T.I. was not on hand to receive his awards or perform because he was arrested over the weekend for planning to pick up some machine guns and silencers his bodyguard had ordered. Standard.
