Warning: Video contains explicit language
"Give a black man a chance, man!" So goes the start to Kanye West's backstage rant at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards. The rapper and avid blogger prone to public outbursts has never shied from sharing his unending displeasure with everything ("George Bush doesn't care about black people," "Yoooo, why won't you let me be great!!!"). When West failed to win in any of the five categories in which he was nominated and watched Justin Timberlake perform on the show's main stage while he performed from a hotel villa, West vowed never to return to MTV. He was back the following year.
