Defiant Kanye Blasts The Grammy Doubters

Subscribe To:

Rap sensation KANYE WEST was defiant when he picked up the Best Rap Album prize at the GRAMMY AWARDS last night (13FEB05) because he is sick of the doubters who were convinced he'd win none of his 10 nominations.

The JESUS WALKS hitmaker lashed journalists who asked him before the ceremony what he'd do if he won nothing, and credited the 2003 car crash that almost ended his life with giving him the opportunity to appreciate every day.

He said, "I had my accident and I found out at that moment that nothing in life is promised except death. If you have the opportunity to play this game of life you need to appreciate every moment.

"A lot of people don't appreciate their moment until it's past.

"I plan to celebrate and scream and pop champagne every chance I get because I'm at the Grammys, baby.

"Everybody wants to know what I was gonna do if I didn't win. I guess we'll never know."

But it wasn't exactly a landmark night for the rapper - he only won two categories of the 10 he was nominated for.
