Kanye West may have lost out on some deserving awards in the past, but he didn’t need to cut any speeches short at Monday’s 14th Annual ACE Awards because he was the night’s big winner. The dapper rapper was honored as Stylemaker of the Year for his “personal style and influence on fashion” at the Accessories Council’s event held at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.
“When they make a list of 100 New Yorkers, and I’m not on it, it breaks my heart,” an admittedly nervous Kanye told the audience. “Thank you for this moment of acceptance.”
Before the awards, ‘Ye sat down with Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex for an interview, which will air today at 7 p.m. EST.
