Earlier this week, Kanye West received the Shoe of the Year award for his Adidas Yeezy Boost at the Footwear News Achievement Awards. Kanye accepted the honor and delivered an almost 20 minute speech full of jokes and smiles.
Before even beginning his speech, Kanye removed the previous speaker’s notes from the glass podium, so that the photographers could get better photos. Even during an acceptance speech, Kanye is a man with a vision. He then warmly opens up with a joke, saying, “If you don’t like 10 minute profanity-ridden speeches that end with a presidential bid, you can go to the bathroom.”
Though his speech wasn’t completely full of jokes, it remains lighthearted throughout. Kanye went on to discuss his working with designer Phillip Lim, the creative process that went into all of the designs, and balancing fashion while working on music.
Watch the speech full of laughs above.
