At last night's CFDA Fashion Awards, a semi-emotional Kanye West presented Pharrell Williams with the 2015 Fashion Icon Award. In typical Yeezy style, Kanye gave a mini-rant about the hardships of making it in the fashion world as a rapper and acknowledged the many style trails—namely skinny jeans and stunting front row at fashion shows—that Pharrell had blazed before him, ultimately paving the way.
Check out an abbreviated clip of Kanye's bite-sized rant and Pharrell's acceptance speech above. For a full transcript of Kanye's speech, visit The Cut.
