Great news for Yeezy! Kanye West will receive the MTV’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. The rapper, songwriter, producer and fashion designer (whew, that’s a lot of titles!) will have the lifetime achievement award bestowed upon him at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards in honor of his profound body of work in music, fashion and art.
