Jay-Z to be honoured with NAACP President's Award

Anderson brought his mother onstage with him and dedicated his award to "the woman who raised me in Watts (California) and pushed me to become an actor".

"They said no Jussie Smollett jokes". No one will ever know how much that has meant to me and I will be forever grateful. What a waste of white skin. Do you know what I could do with that light skin? "F-king running Hollywood!".

"What the hell was he thinking?" he continued. You are known as "Jessie" for now on. You don't get the "u" no more. "That "U" is respect; you ain't getting no respect from me".

Jay-z has had stellar career as a music artiste; record producer; record executive and business mogul, having won 22 Grammy awards and sold over 100 million albums worldwide.

Jussie Smollett lost to "Grey's Anatomy" star Jessie Williams in the supporting actor in a drama series category. The event comes just days after all criminal charges against Smollett were dropped. "The latest to make waves about Jussie's actions was comedian Chris Rock, 54, who used his time on the 2019 NAACP Awards stage to says Jussie "[gets] no respect" from him. The decision to drop charges came less than two weeks after Smollett pleaded not guilty to the 16 felony counts he was indicted on earlier this month.

The "Empire State of Mind" rapper was honored with the President's Award during the 50th NAACP Image Awards at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday, and his lady love, Beyonce, was right by his side. I'm honored to be included among all of you and to be a part of a vital, thriving, lovely community.

While Smollett read a prepared statement indicating he wants to get his life back after the charges were dropped, his lawyer Tina Glandian appeared on Good Morning America and indicated they might file a lawsuit against the Chicago police department.
