Kanye West pulls a no-show at BET awards

October 12th, 2009 // 55 Comments

Kanye West completely bailed on the BET Hip-Hop Awards Saturday night, according to E! News:

After stealing Taylor Swift’s thunder at the MTV Video Music Awards, the rapper bailed on the Fourth Annual BET Hip-Hop Awards Saturday evening, giving up his nine chances to stage yet another remix-worthy acceptance-speech-crashing moment.

Although in Kanye’s defense, I’m sure he was tired from flying to Norway to explain why he should’ve won the Nobel Prize for apologizing to Taylor Swift. “I’mma let Obama finish, but did you see me say ‘I’m sorry’ on my blog? I wrote it in ALL CAPS! Why won’t you let me be great?!”

    He couldn’t go because his vagina was still sore from the beating Barack gave it.

    He should stay home and cry more often!!!

    I’m not sure what the King of Pop’s problem is these days. It could be the added pressure to perform at even a higher standard now that he’s on top. Kayne has produced many great songs and albums that topping them each time could cause a lot of stress for the mind and body. A rest for the health of one’s self is never a bad thing, Kayne.

    Some static started in the pool hall
    Hit a motherfucker’s face with the cue ball
    Then I met this girl she tried to gank me
    So I smacked her in the booty with M.C. Plank Bee
    Me and my crew out breaking windows
    The bingo the lotto you know I’ll never win those
    Possession is half the law
    I had my routines before all y’all
    Your whole life is coming apart at the seams
    You ain’t nothing but a car thief biting routines
    I’m a city slicker I ain’t no townie
    Right now I wish I had another hash brownie
    Like Ricky always said you’ve got to toke and pass
    Or Mookie’s gonna kick your fuckin’ ass
    You try to take what isn’t yours like a God damn rat
    See personally I wouldn’t want to go out like that

    I’m a writer a poet a genius I know it
    I don’t buy cheeba I grow it Marijuana
    People always trying to get next to me
    I had a beautiful experience on Ecstasy
    Smoked up a bag of elephant tranquilizer
    Because I had to deal with a money hungry miser
    Had a caine filled Kool with my man Rush Rush
    Saw my teeth fall in the sink when I started to brush
    You be doing nose candy on the Bowie Coke Mirror
    My girl asked for some but I pretended not to hear her
    You can’t deny me you always want to try me
    You’re just gonna get your ass kicked
    Homeboy throw in the towel
    Your girl got dicked by Ricky Powell
    The Godfather of Soul is in the belly of the beast
    For smoking that dust at St. Anthony’s Feast

    All the wife beaters and all the tax cheaters
    Sitting in the White House pulling their peters
    Buy my cheeba from the cop down the street
    The only cop with a rope chain walking the beat
    Like a sneaky pouch time bomb tickin’
    Like the beat to my rhyme just kickin’
    Space cake cookies I discover who I am
    I’m a dusted old bummy Hurdy Gurdy Man
    Five-O caught me now I’m going to the mountains
    Said good-bye to my girl my lawyers and accountants
    My mind is kinda rhymin and I think I oughta think
    So I’m rockin all the rhymes and I’ll have another drink
    So the lights are flashing my mind is spinning
    I feel like it is always the beginning
    Of another rhyme I’m rapping M.C.’ing I rock
    You ain’t nothing but a car thief who must be stopped

    You’re a fucking idiot. Kanye is not, or will never be the King of Pop. How dare you even compare him to MJ. Blasphemy. Kanye forgot his roots, can’t even fit in the door with his big-ass head, and is making shit music now. Take a look at his last album …. shit.
    Randal before you speak, think about what youre saying. Aslo … DIACF

  13. KANYE has pumpkins, too

  14. Jooosh

    Kanye doesn’t like black people.

  15. E

    I hope that kanye along with most celebrities go to an island far far away, where they can tell each other how awesome they are.

  16. diddleysquat

    Jeesus, this guy is so transparent!
    Show up CARRYING A BOTTLE at an awards show, have a “spontaneous” outburst, next…..lemme guess,,,,, a big REHAB BULLSH*T story,
    and he triumphantly returns with a story (and CD) to sell.
    God I hope the American public gets smart enough to see through this sh*t.

  17. bob

    Kanye West does not care about black people

  18. Jaime's Presslies

    Nurse: Congratulations, it’s a boy. What are you going to name him?

    Kayne’s Mother: Well lets see. How about we just put some letters together and see what it sounds like.

    Nurse: Ok, how about Eyank? Is that made up enough for you?

    Kanye’s Mother: No. That’s not Douche-baggie enough. How about Kanye. Yep. Kanye.

  19. Hello There

    THAT WENT WAY OVER YOUR HEAD, RETARD

    Kanye? King of Pop? Please. But then again, most pop music is becoming more and more degraded with time. Music these days is so terribly predictable it is almost painful to turn the radio on. Please give my ears something NEW and REFRESHING to listen to! And before you say it, Kanye is not new or refreshing. He takes his ideas from other artists and twists them (kinda like most fiction, and most videogames). No, I am not saying he is the only one who does this…but just saying that he isn’t anything special either. He is just like every other artist (although maybe a bit more of a douche when trashed, hahah).

    Music industry…you bore me.

    I almost wonder, if people studied and appreciated music like they once did…if the industry would be a bit more progressive? In order to fully love something, you should at least understand it.

    Oh, and before I get accused of being a hater…I am not calling any of the music bad, I am just saying it isn’t good. ;)

    #13 IS an idiot. Kanye is a jackass and will not even be a footnote in the history of hip-hop.

  22. holyshit he looks like Mozenrath with that skeleton arm!

    @11 think you’ll find that Alfred Nobel was Swedish, but the Norwegian Parliament appoints the Norwegian Nobel Committee, which selects the laureate for the Peace Prize and that the Nobel Institute is in fact in Oslo, Norway. Honey.

    The Nobel Prize
    Every year since 1901 the Nobel Prize has been awarded for achievements in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature and for peace. The Nobel Prize is an international award administered by the Nobel Foundation in Stockholm, Sweden. In 1968, Sveriges Riksbank established The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, founder of the Nobel Prize. Each prize consists of a medal, personal diploma, and a cash award.
    http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/

    The Nobel Prize (Swedish: Nobelpriset) is a Sweden-based international monetary prize. The award was established by the 1895 will and estate of Swedish chemist and inventor Alfred Nobel. With the exception of the Nobel Peace Prize, the Nobel Prizes and the Prize in Economics are presented in Stockholm, Sweden, at the annual Prize Award Ceremony on the 10th of December, the anniversary of Nobel’s death. The reason Norway distributes a part of the prize is that at the time of Alfred Nobel’s death, Norway and Sweden were joined together in a personal union known as the Swedish-Norwegian Union.[3][4] The award ceremonies and the associated banquets are typically major international events.[2]

    There is a difference between the Nobel Prize (there are several categories) and the Nobel PEACE Price. The Nobel PEACE Prize is the only one which is selected by the Norwegian committee in (funnily enough) NORWAY.

    @28 read your own post – it doesn’t even mention the PEACE prize!

    Kanye should be sentenced to sensitivity training or something. Hopefully he’s retired for good. I’m not the only one who thinks he sucks – this guy wrote it great :

    he should take that bottle, and shove it right up his ass and then break the neck off…. I think you get the picture of what I think of this douchebag of douchebags

  42. Hello There

    “But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.”

    LOL

  43. PropaGanja

    Where’s Kanye West when you need him? “Yo Obama I’am really happy for you, Imma you finish, but Bono is the best peace activist of all time”

  44. With the state that Hip Hop is in today (with the exception of Jay, Common, Kanye, Wayne) I don’t even know why they’re celebrating this once inspirational music turned trash culture….everyone knows that hip hop is now nothing but an audio safari for America’s paying suburbs…

  45. Kanye believes he’s grooming today’s young minds into becoming the history majors of tomorrow. An honorary doctorate degree in history is just a matter of time for this American rapper, record producer, author, singer, and crotch grabber (see picture at start of post). But i think he need more time to make his name in appreciative audience.

  46. Is he serious?!?!? what a knob

  47. Darth

    What was wrong with him?! He did almost lose his shit.

  48. Galtacticus

    He did poke himself good in the shitter.

  49. The Sicilian

    Fuck Kayne.
    That piece of shit isn’t the voice of my generation no matter how many times he calls himself that. He’s done nothing but create drama and i’m sick of him getting away with it. Stop buying his cd’s and call your local rap station your offended.
    He’s a child, a lonely pathetic child who wants somone to pay attention to him.

    Fuck Kayne West. Fake ass wanna be 2-pac.
