Kanye West is scheduled to receive the Visionary Award at BET Honors. We all know Yeezy thinks of himself as a visionary, but say what you want about Mr. West, you can’t deny he’s groundbreaking, creative, and most importantly acts on his visions rather than daydreaming of what could be. Yes, he can be an absolute douchebag at times, but you you know what? He’s allowed to be for everything he’s already accomplished and for what’s inevitably to come. That “give 0 f*cks” attitude, you need that to truly be a visionary.

As PnP reminds us, on one of his rants this summer, he basically summarized who he is, what he wants, and what kind of thinking got him to where he is today:

“I just wanna make something awesome,” he said at the time. “I just wanna be awesome. And I wanna hang around my awesome friends and change the fucking world.”

The show will air February 23rd after being held January 24th. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit National CARES Mentoring Program.
