Kanye West vs. Justice: 2006

YES! The glorious start of a most glorious tradition. Kanye West lost best video during the Euro VMAs to Justice for their totally freaking awesome low-budget "We Are Your Friends" remix clip. But, of course, West was pissed because he felt the more expensive video, his own "Touch the Sky," deserved to be treated better. Mid acceptance speech, he took center stage and let his two cents rain on the crowd. "This video cost a million dollars, fam. I had Pamela Anderson. I go jumpin' across canyons and shit. Aw hell no." He went even further by claiming, "If I don't win, the award show loses credibility." Oh Kanye, never change.
