The hip-hop man triumphs at the ShockWaves NME Awards 2006
Kayne West has beaten the competition tonight (February 23) to be declared Best Solo Artist at the ShockWaves NME Awards 2006.
The rapper-producer confirmed his journey from being a backroom studio boffin for the likes of Jay-Z to fully fledged star in his own right by scooping the prize at the Hammersmith Palais.
With the success of his recent album ’Late Registration’, West pipped a strong field by gaining the largest support from NME’s readers.
After getting his award from Sugababes, he encouraged the audience to check out his outfit, which included white-rimmed shades, a leather jacket and what appeared to be jogging bottoms!
For all the action from this year’s ceremony stay tuned to NME.COM.
