Kanye West‘s contributions to entertainment have been acknowledged by MTV.
Find out how below…
Mr. West will receive the MTV Video Vanguard Award at this year’s Video Music Awards when it takes place on August 30th 2015.
Yeezus has more than earned this honor, after years of releasing groundbreaking music and accompanying videos that have always pushed the envelope. From “Through the Wire,” to “Runaway” and “Bound 2,” his creative depths have never ceased to amaze us, and some could argue that his videos are complete masterpieces in their own right.
The star will receive the honour before the unveiling of his forthcoming album and after Justin Timberlake and Beyonce nabbed the same gong for their artistic efforts in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
