Kanye West wins first gospel Grammy for Jesus is King months after posting video peeing on award

KANYE West won Best Contemporary Christian Music Album at the 2021 Grammys for his album Jesus is King.

The big award show win comes just months after the rapper, 43, posted a video that appeared to show himself peeing on a Grammy Award trophy.

The strange video came after he had hit out at the record industry, and put record label Universal on blast, alleging he had signed over 10 contracts with the label and that they had tried to "bury him alive."

To win his latest award, Kanye beat out Hillsong Young & Free, Tauren Wells, We the Kingdom, and Cody Carnes.

In the September video, someone was seen peeing on a Grammy placed in a toilet bowl, and Kanye captioned the tweet: "Trust me, I won't stop."

Kanye's win for Jesus is King marks his first gospel Grammy and his 22nd win at the award show.

It's also his first trophy from the Recording Academy in eight years.
