    At one point it was rumored that Kanye was gonna do a tour called "Ye vs the Volcano" I guess he's bringing back that concept this time around.

  • DallasTx_Groveside

    ^ Kanye was using the symobolism of the Parable about Moses on the mount. U call your self GOD kanye west ????
    You r not god Mr west

  • And dre

    Really like this track. Let's hope for more of the same on Good Ass Job.

    I think term 'hater' should be banned from usage, at least for a year. It gives wackness to much room to breathe

  • Rio$

    what's a bet awards? did that ever go to real artists

    SMH bet t-pain or gucci win some shit

  • Lioness

    worst kanye performance ever

  • the shoster

    HOLY SHIT! THE CHAIN!!!! OMG. SO awesome!!

    I think he was making a reference to when Obama called him a Jackass after the "Taylor Swift" incident...it was hilarious hearing President Obama say that.

  • http://BananaStrings That_Josh

    Was Ye wearing a big Jesus piece?

  • http://LFTFL.com LFTFL.com

    What the fuck is Kanye wearing around his neck? is that a medallion of a gold plated version of the King James Bible?

  • http://myspace.com/capcityblue MellowMarsh

    I thought it was just a gigantic version of the pharaoh medallion Nas has with a different chain.

    But yea, this definitely wasn't Kanye's best performance at all. Couldn't tell if there even was a live band, and that corny laughing at the end (yea i know it's in the song) but the way he was acting it out was dumb. but then again, this is the BET awards...

  • mALiZ

    "Lost in translation with a whole f-ckin’ nation
    They say I was the obamanation (abomination) of Obama’s nation
    Well, that’s a pretty bad way to start the conversation"

    He wasnt dissin Obama....stop reaching

  • DallasTx_Groveside

    @BlackCaesar
    Iam 100% right nigga read a fuckin book Its clearly the Ten Commandments story Moses on the mount bro when Moses was getting the commandments but here kanye is "god" (and that big ass jesus chain IS a prop) bcuz he never accends down like Moses did u see in the background were the weather was changeing ? That's the days passing that Moses had to wait on the summit

    Nigga don't try to fuck with me unless u got your info straight thx

  • SLIM64

  • Marksppl

    ....Anyway i don't really like this song I can't wait for the album tho

  • DallasTx_Groveside

    ^If he was Moses he would climb the summit to reach god because that's where he is on top
    .....here ye starts off on top so he's "god" it's as simple as that.
    Iam not beefing iam just telling y'all what it is and I fuck with kanye he's a dope rapper.

  • mmkayy

    kanye wasnt gr8 but it was far from wack..

  • VTP

    Keyshia Cole fucked up that B.O.B. song "Airplanes". That's what happens when you try to steal the spotlight and you can't perform worth a shit live.

  • King Geezy

    They bogus as hell for doing J. Cole like that. Show the Allstate sign 30 seconds into his performance and cut to commercial 1/3rd through the first verse. smh Fuck BET!

  • http://www.pornhub.com WorldCrysis

    TI really fucken sucks live. Real talk. Bring out a hype man to give yourself time to breathe.

    Same shit was during grammy swagga like us performance. Poor little skinny bald TI in big-ass glasses gasping for air

  • Chew

    http://relevantmusictoday.blogspot.com/

    I think Kanye was feelin' himself a little too much though. I still really like the track, because it's an interesting perspective of what Kanye has upon the world that shunned him as quickly as they accepted him.

  • http://espn.com Derek Jeter

    Anybody else notice Prince walking out during his own tribute? Ouch!

  • http://twitter.com/realmikeyfresh mikeyfresh

    breezy killed that shit i think he got his female fan base back with that one.

  • lxlnethinglxl

    performances were nice. B.o.B was lookin kinda like lupe on his. still pretty dope all around

  • RockyLockridge

    ^^yea cb crying worked like a charm
    the crowd were like "punched who?..aww hes so cute"

  • smh

    1.
    @DallasTx_Groveside
    FAIL its a fucking VOLCANO not a mountain so that just shuts up everything you said

    2.
    @WorldCrysis
    you are a fucking hater dude, first you call kanye a nobody (becuase you dont understand obama nation line) and if kanye is a nobody wtf does that make YOU.. a piece of shit hating behind a computer and then you hating on tip and i aint even a tip fan

    3.who in the fuck at bet edited this shit they fail, they up there blocking out words that wasnt even curse words

    4.they did j.cole wrong as hell, showing the all sate sign for most of his perfromance then cutting to commercials, same way mtv did wale and cudi last yr and lupe the yr before that fuck mtv and bet

    5.the VOLCANO (*cough DallasTx_Groveside cough*) and the screen in the back was dope but ye voice messed the performance up he sounded weird

  • smh

    @Derek Jeter
    damn he did shit i would of too trey songs was doing horrible that shit sucked really badly

  • http://espn.com Derek Jeter

    Chris Brown killed that shit but that was a bitch cry he was doing. That was no man cry that's for sure. It's one thing to get emotional but he took it a little too far.

  • j

    Did J. Cole perform? If so upload it pleasse

  • MADDMIKE

    what happened to j.cole?

  • kingdarius

    chris brown murdered that performance but went a lil overboard with tha cryin shit...........he cant thank BET for saving his career tho

  • http://www.pornhub.com WorldCrysis

    @smh

    first of all it is not the right logic to move attention from kanye to me. "kanye is a nobody" he is definately not a nobody, but he is not THAT big of a deal, and yes i got that line, and that is exactly why it felt so unnatural and awkward and everything. He does not hold any weight as a social activist what so ever and stands for nothing (unless you count himself and narcissism) and will not be remembered 10 years after his death for him to make those claims.
    you saying "you say kanye sucks....who are you!!" is like drinking piss and making excuses that some other people actually not only drink piss but also eat shit. It is retarted and demonstrates lack of any debate or logic skills on your side.
    3rd, TI DID sick live. he performed exactly HALF of the song, because he was gasping for air half his lines. Meanwhile before mentioned kanye didnt stumble once. and dont even get me started on eminem.

    you are one of the reasons term "hater" should be banned from existance

  • kingdarius

    i meant CAN thank BET

  • http://www.pornhub.com WorldCrysis

    I mean TI DID SUCK live

  • robertTHEallen

    chris brown won with this one

    The fuck were BET playing at with J. Cole's performance?

    Whatever, I just laugh with it
    ___Cause today’s fan is tomorrow’s rap critic___
    One day, they giving you the thumbs up
    The next, they telling 9th to go and switch his drums up
    The best is what they expect
    But why they won’t let the music just be what it is
    Is anybody’s guess

    Man, I give two fucks what everyone say, Chris Brown put his heart into that performance. Anyone else couldn't have done a michael Jackson tribute like that. Any if they chose anyone else for the tribute, I bet they would've cried like that too. I cried watching. It ain't about being a punk, it's about having respect for MJ and letting him know you love him. Best performance.

  • Billy

    yea and theirs a new J.Cole verse also in the video also. I saw the video posting in http://jcolefans.com/..

  • SSM31

    What happened with J Cole?

  • Kandice

    Who cares they didn't show J Cole he's garbage
    All that matters is the right artist had the best performnance

  • http://twitter.com/realmikeyfresh mikeyfresh

    didnt see drizzy performance till now.
    hes already a good performer.
    minus the singing.

  • spooky

    I don't really feel they did J.Cole wrong really. They had him in the new artists to watch category, which makes sense. Remember, most people (BET core audience) don't really know who he is. It's not like he has singles out that he could have performed. I mean really, does anyone like Who Dat? Plus he doesn't have a strong team behind him. Jay wasn't there... I don't even know who else is on RocNation?? That's one thing Young Money has going for them. Whether you like it or not, if you know one person on young money, you know all of them.

  • tkends

    J. Cole is THE FUTURE

  • M&M

    @Kandice
    I agree with everything esle expect the Chris Brown part. The man did his shit, big props... R.I.P. Michael Jackson

    @DallasTx_Groveside How is it the parable on the mount, first off, he is on a volcano, not a mountain. How is he god, he's on the volcano, not in the sky. He doesn't cast 10 commandents, there's no ref to the staff turning into the snake, none of that. And Chris Brown kilt it, so anybody hating on him, rly needs to fuck off, MJ was his idol, and his all-time major influence, and I blv they were friends too, so when he finally gets to tribute him after a year, and considering all he's been through, he cried. DOn't give him shit for that

  • Idris

    All the folks speaking hateful aren't fans. You aren't even critics. You just speak out of spite, and it's sad. I'd feel sorry for ya'll, but you just spew evil shit all day. But anyway, I'm happy for everybody, it kinda sucks though that J. Cole didn't get his spotlight. Seems they do this to all the new up and coming artist who aren't in a place like Drake is (i.e Nikki).

    But whatever, B.E.T ain't been shit for a while.

  • The Real JonnieHayward

    Chris Brown was so emotional because he wanted to be apart of the MJ tribute last year but BET rejected him because of the Rihanna incident...MJ was a fan of Christopher's too so it meant alot that he finally got to do this

  • Micah

    it was a king tut piece, white suit the volcano was the red reflecting, wasnt really that serious, he rapped his song POWER dont you think the theme of the song has anything to do with the performance UNDERSTAD the theme of the song THEN apply it to the performance dumbasses, eminem had mic issues or something, nikki fail for lip synching

  • Static

    @Hernandez

    That waz a very racist way to look at that...

    Hernandez< black entertainment..refers to things of african american cultural origin, eminem taking part is like an african american taking part in an italian cooking contest, if ur the best their still gonna let u cook and take part, eminem happens to be great at a music genre originating from african american culture, why cant he do that? shud black ppl not be allowed to take part in a cowboy dancing contest?

  • DatGuy

    Is Ye wearing skinny jeans???

  • FAH-Q

    Eminem had the best performance, he sounded the best live. T.I.'s was pretty damn sick as well, with Travis Barker on the beats. B.o.B always does pretty good live as well.

  • B.J.

    First before any of you got shit to say about my comment, think clearly about the difference between Hip Hop and Rap. To be honest, Hip Hop is what Artists like Kanye West, J.Cole, Jay Z, etc(Not Including Drake) are doing. Rap(Retards attempting Poetry) are obviously commercial artists and therefore do not realize the true essence nor meaning behind the Music Itself, only to be mostly profit and can't see the true nature of music itself. I say Kanye West's performance was really good but Of course you guys may have seen other performanecs and may think that they're the best...however I think that's one of the top for me. Drake just confuses the Hell out of me...I mean you can't even compare him to Lil Wayne because Drake is like a Cyborg, Half Human, Half Robot being under the Influence of Cash Money/Young Money's Poison Music like a Epidemic. Honestly I think Dirty Money just lost me completely...I mean their performance was good in all, but through the years ever since Biggie Smallz died, Puff isn't really doing that well and I mean for the 2Pac Fans and all, I believe that they just need a breakthrough artist like J.Cole or Jay Electronica, Possibly even Wale to make Roc Nation become one of the Greatest Labels ever...since It's obvious that's the best Real Music source itself. Trey Songz...Eh I'm not too much of a Fan but Chris Brown is Cool. Tyga(From young money/cash money) with the video "Deuces" is good but Tyga is just like Drake to me...I think Phonte & 9th Really need to help Drake get back to Real Music and just go sign to another Artist besides Lil Wanye...He's what started the corruption of Hip Hop into Rap and is a disgrace to what Music really stands for...It's just bad music period. Now J.Cole is really good in a way, and I think he just has as much If not better potential than Drake himself no question. Alicia Keys is one of my favorite R&B but I think she's heading for a Rude Awakening of course...I mean she got Drake to do one of her Songs/Videos...That's one thing I never saw her do at all. Overall the BET Awards wasn't exactly what I had hoped for but it was good....that's all...just good and nothing more.
