Watch Jay-Z interrupt Kanye West: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tocw6thZyns
Jay-Z pulls a Kanye on Kanye! Hey guys, welcome back to ClevverMusic. The 2012 BET Awards were held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles last night, hosted by Samuel L Jackson. In the first award given of the night, The Throne duo Kanye West and Jay-Z won “Best Group”, and Kanye got on stage to accept the award on their behalf.
But part way through Kanye’ acceptance speech Jay-Z came out on stage to accept the award with Kanye, and revealed he was in fact in attendance and the crowd went wild. Rumor has it that these two don’t get along anymore, but at the last second Jay-Z decided to come out from backstage to accept the award with Kanye. Jay was at the show supporting wife Beyonce who was also nominated for awards.
And it got better from there. Later in the night, The Throne received another award for “Video of the Year” for hit “Otis”. This time, both guys came on stage to accept the award, but it was Jay-Z who got the last laugh. Jay said his thanks first, then Kanye started to do his, but Jay-Z spoofed West’s infamous interruption of Taylor Swift’s MTV VMA acceptance in 2009. As Kanye started to talk, Jay-Z jumped in saying, “Excuse me Kanye, I’m gonna let you continue.”
