Through "Graduation", Kanye West took his fourth win as the album was named Best Rap Album.
Kanye West, as the biggest nominee at the 50th Grammy Awards, brought home the fourth winning through his latest effort "Graduation". The album was named Best Rap Album and is still waiting whether it will also come out as the winner of Album of the Year.
"We basically made this our new place of residence," West said of his win. He also earlier went up the podium to get his statuettes after winning Best Rap Solo Performance for "Stronger" and Best Rap Song for "Good Life" which are both taken from "Graduation". He also shares a nod with Common on the track "Southside" that is named Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group.
Earlier in the evening, the rapper took the stage performing "Stronger" and made it a surprise by having it with Daft Punk. "Stronger" for one thing, is sampling a song from the electronic duo which is called "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger". He later on paid a tribute to his late mother by singing "Hey Mama".
The 50th Grammys is held on February 10 at Los Angeles' Staples Center. The coveted title of Record of the Year is still waiting to be announced at the end of the show.
