Ever since the Taylor Swift incident at the 2009 MTV Awards, we haven’t seen Kanye West at an awards ceremony. He was noticeably absent at the 2010 Grammys. In fact Kanye’s been keeping a low profile since the incident, which saw him become public enemy number one and coincidently pull out of his tour with Lady Gaga.
But with the release of his new album Good Ass Job looming, and new single “Power” being leaked on the net to rave reviews, it seems Mr West is finally ready to make his grand return. The outspoken rapper is set to take the stage on June 27 to perform live at the 2010 BET Awards.
Kanye is nominated for two BET awards including Video of the Year for “Run This town” with Jay-Z and Rihanna.
The rapper has been doing some low-key gigs recently. On Tuesday he performed at 3 different high schools in the Chicago area for part of the Kanye West Foundation’s annual Stay in School event and he also made a surprise appearance at a Manhattan nightclub for a listening party featuring songs from his upcoming album Good Ass Job.
I love Kanye’s music, but music aside he’s made some bad choices. I think people will be willing to forgive him now though, granting his curved that big ego a bit. Only time will tell.
