    The rap game is all about your aesthetic. What you do, how you do it, how you look and how you market yourself are all a massive factor in a successful career. Some rappers take their aesthetic to the next level, creating something completely unique out of their brand. When they accomplish that, they can receive a cult-like following because it becomes much bigger than just the music; it becomes the culture.

    After Beck was announced the winner of Album of the Year, the final award of the night, at last weekend's Grammys, Kanye rushed the stage but stopped himself before he reached the mic; a far less dramatic stunt than when he famously interrupted Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMAs. Still, many think Kanye's intentions were disrespectful, especially as he said, "Beck needs to respect artistry" during an interview after the Awards. He now tells Seacrest his comments were misguided--"obviously Beck is one of the most respected artists and respects artistry."

    It almost looked as if Kanye West was going to win America back at last Sunday's Grammys. A Beatles co-sign, and a song about his daughter, sung from the perspective of his late mother, seemed to be a sure bet to grab the hearts of the audience he lost with his VMA interruption years back. Toward the end of the show, he even riffed on that moment, poking fun at himself by approaching the stage when Beyonce lost album of the year to Beck, only to grin and turn back to his seat.

    Kanye West took the stage at the Grammys for the first time in six years tonight, and while he spent the majority of the show without causing any kind of scene, when Beck beat out Beyonce for album of the year, he decided to pull one of his classic moves -- to a point. The rapper ran up on stage, much as he did for the infamous Taylor Swift interruption, but instead of giving the world a piece of his mind regarding Yonce's talent, he simply smiled and made his way back to his seat.
