First of all, thanks to Dr. Dre, said he in the house. He’s somewhere, oh, there he is, Andre Young. Thank you, sir, for all the doors that you open. You know, you showed us that we can be rock stars. Seeing you on the Rolling Stone, obviously, there’s Run DMC with the leathers and the Aerosmith. But when you came out West, you took it to a whole new level. You put us on covers of Rolling Stone, put us around the world. You and Snoop, all that y’all did, all the records y’all broke. So thank you for this honor, honor to accept it. Honor to accept it.

And thank you to the Black Music Collective for all the work that you guys do, scholarships for young creatives. Hopefully, you know, I’m adding to what you guys are doing out here. Obviously, it’s great to have an award for such an icon. How far we’ve come with Will Smith, him, Chazzy CHF, and The Fresh Prince winning their first Grammy and boycotting because it wasn’t televised. And then they went to a hotel and watched the Grammys. I don’t even understand what the wasn’t a great boycott.

But then, in ’98, I took a page out of that book. I was nominated for the Best Rap Album, and DMX had dropped two albums that year. They both were number one. Shout out to DMX. And he wasn’t nominated at all. So I boycotted, and I watched the Grammys. I’m just saying, we just want y’all to get it right. We love y’all, we love y’all, we love y’all. We want y’all to get it right, at least get it close to right. And obviously, it’s subjective. Y’all don’t got to clap at everything. Obviously, it’s subjective because it’s music, and it’s opinion-based.

But you know, some things, I don’t want to embarrass this young lady, but she has more Grammys than everyone and never won Album of the Year. So even by your own metrics, that doesn’t work. Think about that. The most Grammys never won Album of the Year. That doesn’t work. Some of you, some of you going to go home tonight and feel like you’ve been robbed. Some of you may it ra, some of you don’t belong in the category. No, no, no, no, no. I was that. No, when I get nervous, I tell the truth.

But outside of that, you know, we got to keep showing up. Forget the Grammys for a second. Just in life, as my daughter sits and stares at me, nervous as I am. Just in life, you got to keep showing up. Just keep showing up. Forget the Grammys. You got to keep showing up until they give you all those accolades you feel you deserve. Until they call you chairman, until they call you a genius, until they call you the greatest of all time. You feel me? Thank you.
