The 8th annual BET Honors went off without a hitch but featured an interesting encounter between Dame Dash and Kanye West as the mogul presented Ye with a special award Saturday night.

The event took place in Washington, D.C. with Dame introducing Kanye with the Honorary Visionary award. During his introduction, Dame was honest and blunt by saying he didn’t respect Kanye as a rapper. “My history with Kanye is I didn’t respect him as a rapper because I was around the greatest rappers,” he reportedly said. “But he has courage.” He also called his troubles with Kanye emotional before a video of Kim Kardashian, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z and Common aired with the stars praising Kanye for his creative mind.

Kanye accepted his award, but not after he took his own dig at Dash with the comment, “I understand how it feels to be humbled.” During his speech, he discussed fighting for his dreams and standing out from his peers. He even garnered huge laughs for his joke about his wife’s dating history.

“They say white girls go out and get a rich black dude. But my wife dated broke black dudes. So it’s not about the money.”

The BET Honors will air on BET Feb. 29.
