Kanye West will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at this year’s MTV VMAs, according to Complex.
We’re sure the rapper-producer won’t be upset about getting the lifetime achievement award, as he’ll be in great company along with Beyonce, LL Cool J, Justin Timberlake, and others.
This won’t be the first time West will touch the Video Vanguard award. He presented it to Hype Williams when the director earned it in 2006— he’s also directed nine of West’s music videos. Take a look at the Hype Williams-directed “Runaway” below.
The MTV Video Music Awards will air this Sunday, August 30 at 8:30 p.m.
